EXO Lightstick – Official Version 2 – Price and Where to Buy 2016

EXO Lightstick Official Version 2.0

First, we are going to take a look at the EXO lightstick. There are 2 versions of this light stick. The first one is called EXO 1.0 and was used for their first concerts. Now, we have EXO Official Light Stick ver 2.0. It looks similar to the first one, but come in white AND has the new feature of syncing to the stage lighting at concerts!

Overview

Version 2.0 seems to be of much better quality than the original. The coolest new feature of Version 2.0, though, is how it synchronizes to the stage lighting at concerts. To do this, you just sync up the lightstick to your concert ticket using your smart phone. I have instructions on that below, but first…

You have to see this video of the lightstick in action…

How Cool is this?

 

This lightstick will register where you are sitting in the stadium and will flash in sync with the stage lights at the concert. This alone makes Version 2.0 way better than Version 1.0, but it seems most EXO fans have both to make the collection complete.

The Boxes

The boxes look almost identical besides the obvious color difference and the writing on the back. Version 1.0 has the space background on the inside flap whereas 1.0 is plain white.

Construction

The new version definitely seems to have been an improvement over version 1.0. Although they are the same size, the new one feels more solid and heavier and has a much better mechanism for screwing in the base. By base, I mean the part that you take off to put the batteries in.

Functionality – Basics

For version 1.0, it just twists about half a turn into place. But, that makes it easy for it to fall out by accident. Version 2.0, by contrast, actually twists around several times so that it gets screwed into place firmly and stays there. Version 2.0 also comes with a silver colored base that you can switch out if you want some variety or something different from the white.

The light in the head of the light stick of version 2.0 is also brighter and whiter than itspredecessor. They have the same functions as far as blinking. The both blink fast and slow as well as just stay on without blinking.

Functionality – The Really Cool Stuff

So now you can use sync your EXO lightstick to your concert ticket’s seat number. When you do you your lightstick will synchronize with the stage lighting during the concert! It’s really a great idea. Here’s a small sample demonstrating what it does.

Just imagine this multiplied by a THOUSAND screaming fans:

Kpop Lightstick Fandom Color

If you’ve ever wondered what the official fan colors are for the different groups, this is a handy chart. It doesn’t include some of the newer groups, but it is pretty comprehensive.

There is some debate over colors, though. For example, TVXQ (DBSK) fans were petitioning when iKON starting using their color, or at least what they felt was too close in color. Kpop fans are very enthusiastic and protectic of their groups, so the Cassiopeia was pretty adamant about it. They even started a petition. You can read more about the TVXQ and iKON fan colors issues here.

Usually, though, most bands have their own colors and no one causes a fuss.

I hope that this page gives you what you are looking for. I’m trying my best to stay on top of the latest developments in kpop and make sure that the biggest groups are properly represented here.

I want to make sure that this site stays current with the most popular kpop stars, so if you don’t see your favorite kpop group here, leave me a message and let me know.

One artists I have not been able to find a lightstick for is Red Velvet. It seems that they for some reason don’t have an official one. In fact, their fans have been using rainbow colors dusters as a placeholder until their official lightstick comes out.

I find it kind of strange that they don’t have one yet. They are very popular, and on a global scale too. I’m not sure why SM Entertainment hasn’t given them an official lightstick, yet. But, I’m sure they will :)
