What Size Glow Sticks Has the Best Value?

Posted in glow sticks on August 28, 2012

In the market, one can easily find glow sticks of an array of length and width and for new users; they may wonder what size brings the best value.  The most used sizes for glow sticks are 6” and 4”.  The longer ones are brighter simply because they hold more chemical liquid whose reaction creates the light.  And the more liquid there is, the longer the light up duration will be.  So for party entertainment, both sizes would work well but for light up purpose for night work or recreational activities, definitely the longer 6” light sticks should be chosen.

The age of the users is also a factor in choosing the size of sticks.  Thicker ones are not easy to snap for kids and the seniors.  So for these groups of customers, thinner sticks are better and the diameter should stay 10 millimeters or less. Certain glow sticks that use power instead of liquid are especially hard to snap based on the experience of Glow With Us, so they should only be used for industrial purposes.

Glow necklaces and bracelets sticks are very thin and easy to activate. They can not only be used as sticks to sway around but also worn around the neck and wrist as light up jewelry.  You can also connect more than one stick together to make a bigger hoop to wear.  People put them on the head to wear as light up headbands too.  No wonder they are so popular.

If the sticks are used for rock concert and sport games, then they should not be too skinny, as jumbo ones will be definitely more exciting. And also the longer, the more fun. Since chemical glow sticks cannot be too thick as they need to be bended to activate.  For super jumbo light up sticks, the LED sticks can be considered as alternative. As no matter how big they are, it is a press of a button to light up.
