Cool Things to Do With Glow Sticks: Add Them To Your Survival Kit!

Whenever I think of glow sticks, my first thoughts are of kids’ sleepovers or rock concerts. Despite the visions of the Dollar Store party supply section that are probably dancing through your head, the bright tubes are actually a great addition to your preparedness supplies.

Glow sticks are also known as light sticks or chemical lighting. Here is how they work:

A glow stick is made from a plastic sheath or tube that houses a mix of chemicals. Basically, the way it works is that you bend the sheath to crack the capsules that hold the different chemicals separate from one another, then you shake it up to mix the contents, creating a chemical reaction that emits energy with only a teeny emission of heat. This is called chemoluminescence).

The diagram below provides some detail.

1. Plastic casing covers the inner fluid.
2. A glass capsule covers the solution.
3. Phenyl Oxalate and fluorescent dye solution.
4. Hydrogen Peroxide solution.
5. After the glass capsule is broken and the solutions mix, the glow stick glows.

The result is a brightly colored, diffused light that is good for short term illumination (about 6-12 hours). There are several variables that affect the length of time the stick will stay lit: the length of the stick, the chemical composition in the sheath, and the ambient temperature.

What are the advantages of glow sticks over flashlights and candles?

Normally, when you think of emergency lighting, you think about candles and flashlights. While both have their place in the survival kit, there are some downsides.

Here are the cons to these standard light sources:

Candles:

  • Candles can be dangerous if extreme care is not taken in their use. The National Fire Protection Association reports that candles cause 29 house fires per day across the country. Their statistics show that candles caused 3% of the reported home fires, 4% of home fire deaths, 7% of home fire injuries, and 6% of direct property damage. Furthermore, the Red Cross warns against any emergency use of candles in the home due to severe risk of fire.
  • Candles are not wind and waterproof and cannot be used outdoors.
  • Candles should not be left unattended. They should not be used as all-night lights, or by children or the elderly.
  • Candles consume oxygen and should not be used in confined spaces.
  • Candles go out when dropped and are not a mobile light source.
  • Candles are risky to use when natural gas or other fuels are present

Flashlights:

  • Batteries lose power and may leak or corrode when stored for an extended time. This damages the internal mechanism of the flashlights, rendering them useless even with new batteries.
  • Flashlights are great searchlights but give poor room illumination.
  • Light bulbs and lenses are breakable. When broken, they are useless.
  • Only very expensive flashlights are truly waterproof.
  • Flashlight internal circuits are subject to corrosion if there is moisture where they are stored.

What kind of chemical lighting should preppers stock up on?

Glow sticks come in various lengths, with 6 or 10 inches being the most popular. A stick of this length can have a duration of anywhere between 30 minutes to 12 hours, based on the factors we discussed above. Whereas duration is determined by the chemistry of the formulation, brightness is affected by temperature: the warmer the temperature, the brighter the light will appear.

Some of the sticks are flexible and have a connector on the end that allows you to turn them into a bracelet or necklace. This is ideal if you want to give them to children. These are usually lower quality sticks, so you won’t want to rely on them for adults.

Here’s why you need light sticks in your kit.

Glow sticks are far more useful than their inexpensive origins might indicate.

1. They are safe in all environments, including those where questionable or even undetectable gases may exist.

2. They are waterproof and can be used in the rain.

3. They are weatherproof and windproof

4. They are non-flammable, and non-sparking, eliminating the possibility of burns or the ignition of other flammable substances.

5. They have a long shelf life.

6. They are very inexpensive.

7. Most light sticks can be seen from a mile away in the right conditions, making them ideal for indicating your location in a rescue situation.

8. The bracelets can be worn by children who are afraid of the dark.

9. By clipping them on a jacket or placing it around a wrist, they can help you keep track of children when you’re out camping.

10. They can be placed around the house in Mason jars during a power outage, safely lighting your home to prevent accidents without the risk of a fire.
