The military has white chem-lights, but I've never needed them. All things being unequal, you will get the "best" light from a blue or green chem-light.
You will get the most useful/longest lasting but dimmer light from red.

It all depends on what you're trying to do.

Anyway, thank-you. I figured green or blue would be the brightest; I didn't know which.

it's not that they're brighter, just that the human eye is more receptive to those colors of light.

Thank you, Roger. Got the Splinter Kit. Went back, got another one! The plastic bag is almost exact replica of the famous DR Kit plus an airtight vial as a bonus! Great $1 base for a DIY EDC Kit.
