Default Glow Stick Recommendation....

Today I went to charge my glow stick(hsp) and the light for the charger didnt turn on so I'm guessing that the glow stick is bad. Can you guys tell what a long lasting glow stick thats not expenive? I seen 4 dollar glow stick but im not sure if they are good.

The Hobbico Hot Shot are the best IMO.

I tried every brand with the meter on the end figuring it was nice to know if the plug was bad or not. I mean I purchased atleast 5 different brands, ALL of them fell apart, springs broke, clip broke, etc.

My buddies told me to get the Hot Shot and I have never looked back. LOL


I am sure others have had better luck than me, but I just like the Hot Shot

Good to hear about the Hot Shot, cause I just got the Super Hot Shot2 with the 5000mah battery! Does this thing come apart or do you just toss it when the battery dies? (I know to charge it, I mean like 2 years from now)

I was just saying that so somebody wouldn't say that when it dies you just recharge it, Duh.

Just hope I can get use to the lock on feature, already gt a upgrade wrap coming for it and not even used it yet
