- "What’s the difference between a lightsaber and a glowrod? A lightsaber impresses girls!"

Overview[edit | edit source]
Glowrods created a beam of light illuminating up to 10 meters. There were two varieties: those that produced light using chemical phosphorescents and those that used a portable power cell. The latter could be hooked up to a generator for indefinite light generation. The standard glowrod weighed roughly 1 kilogram and cost 10 credits.
A glowrod could be modified so that it flickered instead of emitting a constant light so that it would resemble the flickering of torchlight.
The Chemlight was activated by breaking the stick in half, providing two lights.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Glowrods seem to be Star Wars Universe-adaptations to real-world flashlights and glow-sticks.
