Is there any reason why these bulbs wouldn't work for led glowsticks? (Like they'd burn through batteries too quick, or get too hot?)

larger bulbs can heat up, but usually give them a break after 5-10 min.s of use


also sometimes the bulb itself can't get squeezed inside a stick (altho you can always modify the stick to help them fit)


I'd also suggest messing around with superflux LEDs (

They aren't as bright, but are still pretty versatile =D
