Alright, hey guys so I got my very first ever light.

Stick so I'm, not a hundred percent sure what to expect unboxing.

This, like I'll, be packaged inside I, haven't really watched.

Unboxings of light sticks before, but I totally love.

The funny part is.

It came with batteries on the side, which I was a little surprised by because usually most things are batteries not included, but I really love.

This, like camoed, like gloss they put on like more matte cardboard box, so cuz camels very been BTS is like color style.

I guess are like a design style that they use a lot, but you flip it over kind of gives you the name of it all.

I, don't think they've come out with different versions of their light.

Stick I know: Jin is probably the number one love of the BTS bomb, but there's light mode talks.

Well, it's off on blink and it'll flicker minimum operation time is 6 hours, so you could really just put fresh batteries in this, and I probably go through a whole concert or a few concerts before you go.

Batteries will die out which is really really nice: maximum output, 1 watt size 112 by 2, 32 millimeters, and then it's the model, number BTS official, seven-11, 5g I, don't know if that, because, like I said I, don't think they came out with different versions, but there it is, and then you guys, your official BTS sticker on it and then the next side.

You have your nice camo style again and then just there BTS logo I love it and then it's just black.

So on the top it kind of gives you like their little dog tags style and then their logo and a little light icon.

So I already cut it because it came with a nice piece of tape over it's already cut it.

So I don't have to do that.

Now, let's open this up, I'm a little nervous to see what it looks like I kind of know.

What it looks like, but I mean to have my very own BTS, because I really wanted to see them in concert and I'm like I'm, going to go full official.

So we had a little cardboard piece here and then some nice felt um looks like we have it's probably going to be our official, like manual I'm, just going to do this one item at a time here, so it's in English, which is really nice and then I'm, assuming probably Korean um, and it's your quality assurance.

It talks about warranty, details malfunctions what can cause malfunctions with it like if it doesn't work anymore, um how to remove to put batteries in it looks like how to use the different buttons and all that kind of stuff.

So that's really nice, it's nice that they did in English, too, okay and then next.

Here on the side, we have Oh like a little official light, carrying stick, stick bag, so I guess you can put in here, put it in your bag and just carry it by little strings into the concerts.

So here in America they really don't let you carry anything under your concerts, but it seems more relaxed with Korean concerts from what I've seen like you can take a water bottle in like light sticks and your cheering goods and like ah like the towel things I've seen those.

So this is really nice.


Next, of course, is our official light, stick bomb, oh my god, and then there's nothing else at the bottom.

It's just a little extra to hold it straight, alright.

So here it is of course you'll want to remove your sticker.

Here says: please be careful! Any impact on the fuse shape of the product will be damaged.

So it's probably talked about this I know I've seen you can buy replacement, little red tips and stuff like that on their website, but says BTS might be a little be hard to see so those BTS and we have a nice camel style, and then it has.

These little looks like almost like little things to make it I mean here to kind of give it a little bit of a sound ones like a little rattle e, sound and then says, army BTS and the instruction said we're going to take the top of it off.

Are we sure, because here's your button on the bottom that you push once nice, that gives you a little band here, oh and tournament, whoa? Alright, sorry I had to give it a little bit more force there.

Okay, so it is seal that was a little worried.

It might not be sealed in little ball.

Things would fall out, but it is seal, so they won't fall out.

It's nice, okay! Okay! Should this fall out there we go okay, push it from the bottom, now get that to pop out and then what we turn this okay and you get your little hub for your batteries, so I got batteries so we're going to give this a try.

Okay, let's see how this goes.

Let's say in here, usually always those the bottom end goes on the spring.

No, oh, it says it right here, plus minus minus plus.

No, which way does it go in this way? Yeah, let me show you screw it on nice and tight.

Just drop this back down.

Okay, just go on like a certain line.

These little ridges there's little holes here at the top I'm assuming the line with these holes.

Oh sorry, okay! So you kind of feel it loosen like here's loose and then it clicks on nice and tight.

So that's how it goes.

Sorry I did pull it out.

Okay, I'm going to turn the lights off and then, let's light this little baby up all right.

Let's light this little baby up! Oh, oh, my gosh! Look at this! That's pretty bright, so you can't really see the BTS mess, see! Hmm! Okay! So that's one click two clicks off three: it starts blinking, oh and even lights.

Up all the way up to the little tip here would be nice at the tip actually like blink to read, though the fuse okay.

It's four turns it off.

Oh, my gosh, it's like you're at a rave, it's blinking, so fast Hey and then Wilmore turns it off, and then it starts back at your lights off our light on just salad.

Oh I love.

This I signed a little bit more red ones.

Up close to the hand my hand there so be nice.

It was just a little bit more intense, but I mean for the design of it.

Oh it's so nice I'm glad I finally caved on to peel this sticker off, so it doesn't take away from the beauty, Ness I feel like official BTS army.

Now I got my bomb light.

Stick! Ah I'm, probably gonna watch all my concert discs again and like totally full-on fangirl out.

Alright, let's turn the lights back on and well end this video, okay guys.

So that is all of it.

It's nice to I noticed on the little hand piece it does say BTS here, which is nice just the little extras and I like how the button on this is on the bottom, and it's really nice.

You can almost grip it here with these little ridges to make sure you get a really good hold on it, I guess when you're cheering cuz, you don't want it to go.

Flying like those Wii remotes do but I think it's probably I, like it.

I'm glad I caved and finally bought one, and it is easier once you open it the first time to really get this to turn and go because you can kind of see mine scuffed.

It decided to really give it a good push, but I really liked it.

Let me know if you guys got one of these BTS bomb light, sticks and what'd.

You guys think of it.

I am in love and I'm, so glad I bought it.

Oh I can fishel II like full-on fangirl out now for the BTS, but I hope you guys enjoyed this video like and subscribe, and until the next one bye guys.
