LED Lightstick, Flashlight... and whistle?!

We just received a new shipment of some very cool LED lightsticks here at New York Costumes, your downtown NYC Halloween Adventure store.

Upon browsing for new product arrivals, I came across these sleek little glow sticks near register 1. The compact and grab-able look of these light-up-ables by Life Gear led me to, well, grab one. And that was before I even noticed the "Try Me" message printed on them.

These LED lightsticks run on batteries (which are included). They have a little black button near the top which serves as an on switch and operations switch. Click once to light the glow stick body (green, red, or blue), which looks just like a normal snap-to-activate glow stick. Click again to activate the flashlight, which shines out of the top of the stick. Click again to activate the flasher, which makes the glowing body flash on and off. The last click in the cycle turns off all the lights.

Flip the glow stick upside down, and you will find the build-in whistle piece.

Flash light, flasher, and whistle? Not only is this thing great for rave parties, but it would serve well as a personal emergency device. The "red cross" -looking symbol on the glow stick implies this as well.

The Life Gear glow stick lights for up to 200 hours ("light run time varies based on usage and battery conditions," says the packaging). Initial batteries are included, and replacement batteries are free with a mail in to the company (does not include shipping & handling).

We've got these in red, green, and blue here in the New York Costumes / Halloween Adventure store. And we're currently uploading them to the www.newyorkcostumes.com website.

More photos of these Life Gear lightsticks can be found below, for those inquiring eyes. Enjoy.
