Posted:Hi, I'm Skye. I'm new to the board here.I wanted to tell everybody about the new Krill lamps I just tried out last night for the first time. I'm excited because I've been waiting for something like this for years. These are glowsticks that are powered by two AA batteries that sit in the center of a plastic tube surrounded by a 360 degree chemical light. I tried them out last night on my glowstaff and they were beautiful, just as good as any glowsticks I've used. They cost $25 US apiece but they run 50+ hours on one set of batteries and have 3000+ hours of lamp life. And they have an on and off switch! So great!Skye

Posted:I got the lights from an online catalog called Brigade Quartermaster. I can get the direct order line from the company who makes the Krill lights probably by tomorrow. They come in blue, green, yellow, orange and red I think.

Posted:Thanks for the tip, Simos.I've got a section of clear thick vinyl tubing attached to each end of my stick and I put the lights inside them. I hope that will provide some extra cushioniing.In any case I'll try hard not to drop the things.Skye

Posted:The tubing is this clear vinyl stuff I found at one of those HomeDepot superstores. It's lkie what they use to channel water jets in hottubs and baths.I think they had it from 1/4" up to 1" diameter, sold by the foot. It's pretty curly in long lengths, but when you cut in in foot long sections it only retains a slight curve. Kind of like one of those Japanese curved-blade spears is what it kind of reminds me of.Skye

Posted:Welcome Skye!I think i know what type of tubing you're talking about... Is it sorta flexy? Like it bends really easy but would be like impossible to tear? The only thing i don't like about tubing is, it messes with the light, and it doesn't look as good with'm on. Krill lights sounds pretty cool, but yea, i'd break'm just like supa'man

Glowsticks are a bit expensive after you start using them for a while [i only break out new ones for parties/raves, and use my old ones to practice with], but are tried and true ^__^------------------"Happiness is not a destination, but a method for life"- Burton Hills

Posted:The problem my friend encountered with the krill lights (I haven't used them myself) is that the battery got jarred around inside the light and cracked some internal circuitry. This is not something the vinyl tubing can prevent, I don't think.I have tried these LED bladelights that were mentioned elsewhere (got 'em from www.extremeglow.com). These are much cheaper than krills. Now, mind you, I broke one of these (and I don't mean cracked some internal circuitry, I mean snapped in two) when I went into an overhead butterfly a little too energetically and smacked them together. Also bear in mind that these are pretty long (8" or 20 cm), and are not equipped with any kind of hook or loop--I adapted mine using hose clamps and D-rings.Malcolm mentioned that he's getting heavier-duty ones made up specifically for twirling, and when they are available, I think they'll be the best route to go.
