Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by brunygirl Exactly What I Needed
I purchased these to hang in lanterns for my wedding. My wedding coordinator suggested candles (for extra lighting in the additional dancing room) but I have issues with candle light and smoke. I happened to come across the idea online. When I originally got some, they appeared orange in color. I didn't want to crack one just in case I needed to return them. After a quick and easy phone call, the (VERY NICE) sales associate sent me some more. They were orange, too. I decided I had to crack one. THE WHITE GLOW STICKS APPEAR ORANGE WHEN THEY ARE NOT CRACKED. Maybe I was silly not to know this, but I want to include that in my review.
The light was not extremely bright, but definitely effective. It lasted well through the day into the next (over 24 hours). This was important for me, because my decorating has to occur hours before my ceremony and reception.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LizSch Terrible. Do Not Buy.
I bought 2 packs of these to put in jars with glass pebbles for party centerpieces - I was excited bc they were small and wouldn't be seen inside the pebbles - but they were impossible to crack and when I finally did crack one it was dim and unusable for my purpose. Very disappointed, did not use, advise anyone not to buy these unless you have hands and nerves of steel.

very unsatisfied with this product. It was very small.
We tried everything and couldn't get them to light up.
We returned them.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by callmefordinner not nearly as bright as I expected
These were called "Premium", I expected them to be pretty bright, so I was disappointed. they were ok for the grandkids to play with, but that is what I bought the mixed colors package for. I really thought white would be brighter

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LMSANTOYO EXACTLY WHAT I EXPECTED, WORKED GREAT!
I USED THESE INSIDE CENTER PIECE VASES, TO ILLUMINATE VASES. MEASUREMENTS OF DIAMETER WOULD HAVE BEEN HELPFUL. BUT THEY WORKED FINE.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Holakbm Unusable
I could not figure out how to get these to work. I had my 2 teenagers, my wedding coordinator and a few friends try to figure it out and we could not get them to glow. They are in a box, unused.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PaPat good glow sticks for money
I purchase these glow sticks to use for Halloween. I cut eye's into toliet tissue rolls and put them inside and then I put the roll and sticks in my yard and flower bed for Halloween. They looked great. The only thing is the white sticks turned a pinkie -orange color.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cathouse ok for necklace, not for lighting paper lanterns
i had purchased these to illuminate some paper chinese lanterns that i had in the back yard.
the stick by itself is bright enough, if you wanted to use it as a necklace, say for kids on halloween....
but they barely created the faintest amount of glow for my lanterns, even the smallest one (4"). and two inside the larger one was still very dim.
life was about 4 hours.
