Okay, I have been looking around trying to get more info on these things, but I can't find them anywhere. I checked the two Walgreens closest to me and didn't see them. I tried looking on the site again, but I still don't see them. I looked through Amazon and tried Googling for them, but I couldn't find anything.

Anyways, here is a picture I took of them, and it shows most of the identifying information. They are made in China, distributed by the East-West Distributing Company. The SKU is 053389700030, and there is another number higher up that is WIC or VIC or something like that then #512003.

And of course...East-West Distributing Co. turns out to be Walgreens in my brief google research  ;).  I might just ask one of their reps / salespeople to look up the SKU coz I got nothing online  :(

Mystery glow sticks indeed.  They're definitely keepers Alex  :)...

In one of the links posted here I found these:

http://www.extremeglow.com/Merchant4/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=POI&Category_Code=LEDSTICKS
http://www.extremeglow.com/Merchant4/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=WONDER&Category_Code=LEDSTICKS
http://www.extremeglow.com/Merchant4/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=REUSABLE&Category_Code=LEDSTICKS

I don't quite get the difference between them but they seem to be nice xD... I don't know. xD BTW, $25.00 minimum order (U.S.)

Does anybody knows a good brand you can find in Japan ? Mandi mentioned Tokyu Hands ones. I have OmniGlow xD...

I saw these today at Target in the check out isle. They had blue, red, and green for $4.99. I think they would work well, may be a good choice for those short on time for buying online. They seem very bright and use a color light with a clear tube. The downsides: has flashlight and flash mode so you'd have to do a "double click" to turn on and off. I'd cover the bottom with something to avoid using the flashlight by accident. Leaks a bit of light near the bottom (but your hand would cover this part) and a bit from the tip too. Also you would need to use a screwdriver to change the battery, which are 3 A76 alkaline button cells. Of course the biggest problem - no pink!

I saw similar ones at bed bath and beyond, but they had safety whistles attached and were not as bright... these are much better!

generally, it's bright, but not that bright as lumica UO,
in fact the chemical mix make it has a longer runtime than lumica UO, usually up to 10mins,
but I will accept it at this price,
lumica ultra orange is really expensive if you intend to use lot's of it, and it's really hard to acquire if you are not living in japan :x

It's kind of hard to say if those lights are good. Cyalume only has Ultra Orange lights in the "5 minute" range; all their other ultra colors are 10 minutes (and not as bright).

Then again, these are highly disposable items that aren't meant to last very long, so you have to consider that.

But honestly (for events outside of Japan), if you have some glowsticks, you're already ahead of the game, usually. Unless you're at AFA, where the VIP ticket holders get a set of glowsticks as part of their ticket. Or if a group of somebodies were crazy and bought glowsticks for EVERYONE (I'm retired from this, I think).

I don't remember any posts about the current Japanese LED concert penlights, so I hope its OK to update this old thread. I'm curious what other people know about these.

Some US Amazon merchants that export Japanese goods now carry Turn-On ( http://www.turn-on.jp/ ) Colorful Thunder 110 (カラフルサンダー 110 ) multi-color lights ( http://www.amazon.com/s/field-keywords=colorful+thunder+110 ) and Thunder Neon single color lights ( http://www.amazon.com/s/field-keywords=thunder+neon+turn ) . I have not found any US listings for the King Blade lights by Ruifan Japan ( http://ruifan.co.jp/ ) or Lumica LumiAce.

I talked to someone who had lights that could be switched to different colors at the Megpoid Launch Event in San Francisco after the second Vocalekt Visions show. I didn't think to identify myself by forum handle but in case this is continuing the same conversation, it was nice to meet you. I decided to order some CT110s from AOYAMA&CO after reading http://www.glowsticking.com/forums/topic/34590-wotagei-a-different-style-of-glowstick-dancing/#entry404532 and http://monta.moe.in/wp/2012/12-24/17-01_1038 .

I think a number of us have switched to the Ruifan's King Blade X10 (does 10 colors, uses AAA batteries) for general use and supplement it with some King Blade Max and King Blade Super Tube for blinding light. Our method is "you going to Japan? Pick me up a couple!", which doesn't scale so well.  ;D

We should definitely compare the Colorful Thunders to the X10s; one weakness of the the X10 is that the white color is a not a pure white (it's got a slight color tint to it), though I'm not expecting the CT to be any better.

Yes, the Colorful Thunder's "white" is more of a very light blue than a white. Hopefully we can do a comparison of all the colors sometime.

Hey EdofNoName.  Great seeing you today at Japantown. :)

Yeah, I think all of these multicolor flashlights suffer from some bleed through though I also notice sometimes it's only on one side.  I actually damaged one of them by accident with a pretty hard smack today so I did look inside.  There was some gel-like material (LED?) that the lights came out of.

I go to http://monta.moe.in/wp/ for all my glowstick reviews nowadays.

Amazon.jp + tenso.com is the way I've been going for the LED glowsticks right now.
