Cyalume Lightsticks
6 inch 8-12 hour Military Grade Chemlights
CYALUME® Lightsticks are a portable and cost-efficient source of light.  Each Lightstick is a pliable, plastic tube filled with two nontoxic chemical solutions, one held separate in a floating ampule to prevent activation until required. 

Cyalume lightsticks are non-toxic, non-flammable, waterproof, safe for tents and are utterly reliable. They do not require batteries and work in all types of weather. Lightsticks are a perfect back-up for flashlights. Keep some in your backpack, car and home for safe, dependable light during emergencies and around the camp.

Individually packaged in a foil wrapper for protection until use.

10 - 12 Hour, 6 Inch, Cyalume Green Light Sticks

Field tested and proven effective, 6” Chemlights are easy to use, easy to identify and dispose of during military and federal government operations and trainings.

Recommended for shift signals, drop zones, and hazard markers. Perfect for survival, first aid, and evacuation kits.

Cyalume lightsticks are also variously known as chemsticks, chemlights, and glow sticks. But unlike the light sticks that you may have noticed at concerts or other events, these are genuine, 12-hour, military grade, Cyalume lightsticks with NSN's

Cyalume lightsticks are great for general illumination and for marking key locations and gear around the camp.

Because they produce no sparks or heat, lightsticks can be used in confined spaces, during refueling and in environments that may contain combustible gases. Cyalume lightsticks can be used to signal others by attaching to a length of rope and swinging it in a circle. Cyalume’s non-toxic nature and ease of use makes it appropriate for children over six to use. 

Each Lightstick has a lanyard hole and "Lobster Claw" hooking attachment that makes it easy to secure to clothing, life vests, gear or hang from a lanyard or our KRS Key Chain

To activate:

  1. bend the tube
  2. shake the tube

This breaks the floating ampule and mixes the chemicals.  

A cool bright light is released via chemi-luminescence – a chemical reaction converting energy to light without heat, flame, or sparks.  No batteries, bulbs, or lenses to break or replace.

Available in 6 colors with durations from 8 hours to 12 hours (see table below).  These lightsticks are suitable for a wide range of field-proven applications.  All lights are 6″ in length.


These lightsticks are made to military specifications providing superior performance and brightness as compared to commercial chemlights.
