You cannot turn them off or on. These particular glow sticks you actually bend to activate them. I am not sure how long they last, but I will have an answer by this weekend (10/26/2013)
No. They glow because of a chemical reaction, so because they are liquid, they cannot be separated.
They usually last up to 7 and a half hours to 2 hours. I have on that is 3 days old and only some parts light up. There is no way of turning them off its a chemical reaction when you break the wax in the glo stick.

After 6 hours they were still glowing. However, no way to turn them off once they have been activated.

It lasted us a few hours until my children went to bed.
No, once they are "turned on", it is permanent.
I have found that with any glow sticks, if you store them in the freezer once the children are finished with them for the night, they last longer for future uses (not many, but the kids enjoy it).

It is a glow stick. They are not battery operated. Once the stick is activated it glows several hours until it is no longer active and becomes trash.
