Glow sticks are fantastic for any outdoor activity at night. They not only provide light, but draw attention to yourself. Glow sticks are ideal for raves, parties, and bonfire night.
What are Glow Sticks?
Glow sticks are made by encasing two chemicals in two tubes, one inside the other. The two chemicals in the glow stick are kept separate. By bending the glow stick, this breaks the inner tube and allows the two chemicals to mix. The mixed chemicals in the glow stick react and glow.
Glow sticks are safe to use, and last for many hours. You can get glow sticks in several different colours. They differ in brightness, ranging from the yellow and green being the brightest glow sticks, through red and pink to the blue which tends to give out less light.
Everlasting glow sticks
Once the chemical reaction inside a glow stick stops, the glow stick stops glowing. There is a great form of glow stick called a Krill Lamp, or Krill Light. A Krill lamp works in a slightly different way in that it uses a single battery to power the glow stick. This works more in the way of a fluorescent tube. Krill lamps come in 180 and 360 degree forms. You unscrew the bottom and insert an AA battery inside the glow stick.
A Krill lamp is totally waterproof and provides a great diving lamp. It has an eye on the top so that you can tie it onto rope.
Uses for glow sticks
There are many uses for glow sticks. Glow sticks are used for camping, raves and clubbing, safety markers, fishing float tips, fishing lights, diving lights and markers. If you are going to a festival or concert, you will definitely need some glow sticks.
Glow sticks are used by the emergency services, military, outdoors enthusiasts and sporting people, and most notably those who are out at night clubs.
