These things are GREAT.
They come in different colors, and the new version has several settings, from varying-intensity glow to multiple flash patterns. They're much brighter than a glow stick, and not affected by normal temperature variations (glow sticks get dimmer with colder water temps). They're more waterproof than most submarines (to something like 3500 meters!), and are practically bulletproof. They are possibly the perfect safety/backup light, being smaller, lighter and cheaper than a strobe (but not as bright).
However, some negatives are worth noting: Glow sticks don't need batteries; Glo-Toobs do. Glow sticks float; Glo-Toobs sink - fast. Like a glow stick, Glo-Toobs don't focus, they radiate, and in a single, cool color, not full-spectrum light. Also, of course, a Glo-Toob costs a lot more than a glow stick ... but less than a bunch of glow sticks.
Most importantly, glow sticks have no moving parts - just snap, shake and glow; Glo-Toobs have a complex rotary switch to control the multiple modes. You'll easily be able to turn it on or off while diving, but without a lot of practice, most people will have to get back to the boat (and the instruction card) to change modes.
Overall, these are a fine investment for anybody with demanding or critical underwater lighting or marking needs, and they're *especially* good for any diver's safety/rescue package.

The on/off mechanism is of poor design. My first glo toob failed to turn on after approx. 3 dives, and was exchanged for a new one under warranty. My second failed to operate again, and that's when I realized that if I cleaned the contacts of the switch before a dive, it would work again. I used the light for about a year on maybe 25 dives, and finally the switch corroded so badly that it seized to the point where it couldn't be turned in either direction and then broke off when I tried to turn it with a pair of pliers. Lasts longer than a glow stick, but I will be moving on to another product. Aquatec or something, for my tank light.

    Comments about Aqua Glo-Toob FX Light Stick Amber:

    After two dives in daytime/low visibility, the flashing light worked well. The choice of different flash patterns allow for personal accountability. The small light allows new divers to be more relaxed when they can clearly locate the leader of the group

    Pros

    • Compact
    • High Intensity
    • Long Bulb Life

    Cons

    • Not Waterproof

    Best Uses

    • Night Diving

    Comments about Aqua Glo-Toob FX Light Stick Amber:

    Took this with me to dive in the Philippines and after a few dives it stopped working. Turns out water got in where you twist to turn the light on and off. The points were all corroded inside where the cap makes contact to the battery. After I cleaned the contacts off, it worked again for one more dive then corroded up all over again. Now after every dive i have to take the cap off and sand it down to get all the corrosion off just to get it to work again.

    This light is not worth the hassle. It's not waterproof as they claim since it's always leaking inside. Save your money and buy something better.

      Comments about Aqua Glo-Toob FX Light Stick Amber:

      Used for night diving and as a locating beacon on anchor line. Works about the same as chemical light stick but is reusable. Not enough time yet to say if durable or if it burns out too fast.

      Comments about Aqua Glo-Toob FX Light Stick Amber:

      The Glo-Toob had some bad reviews from other purchasers, but the issue is that most people do not know that 3 caps are available for the Glo-toob.
      There is a pushbutton cap (not waterproof), a twist switch cap (included and only partially water resistent) and a SCUBA Cap which is a solid waterproof piece of metal and will not leak or flood. I have bought 5 colors and none flood with the SCUBA cap.

      Comments about Aqua Glo-Toob FX Light Stick Amber:

      I only got one dive out of it. The compartment leaked. I was using the scuba cap and did not touch it while on the dive. Also less important but switching the mode was time consuming because sometimes it registered the on/off and sometimes it did not.
