    Actually they were never that bright to begin with. While they were a cool little gadget when they came out, they were always over hyped when it came to brightness.
    The green will appear to be a bit brighter, but not that much.
    1) Neutral white, it's the new black. Heck, it's not even "new" anymore.
    2) User Interface... KISS.
    3) Proprietary cells and battery packs - Just say NO!

    It's the technology they use, the EL light. They just aren't all that bright. But they do have a decent runtime and can wrap around the battery tube to provide a good approximation of a light stick that runs on batteries and isn't any bigger than the batteries that power it. I actually like them for night light type applications, but you're right, they aren't really a replacement for a lantern.
