Why Glow Sticks should be taken seriously. Some benefits and uses.  

Glow Sticks are an attractive addition, which should be added to every camping and survival kit and even first aid kits. You could also keep some at home and in the car as an additional light source.

Glow sticks are an excellent alternative to battery powered light sources like torches and lamps as they supply a light source for 12 hours

Torches and mobile phones can only last for a few hours before the batteries need changing or recharging so in any situation where there is no power, glow sticks are perfect, as they can supply the light which also frees up the mobile phone from being used as a torch.
