I wouldn't like the idea of those light sticks for the sole reason of always worrying if they're putting added wear on the amount of current the slots are able to supply. I would think those lights would atLEAST draw comparable current to the RAM sticks in normal operation if not more...would that really be safe for a board in long term operation?

LEDs draw much much less power than the RAM itself. Crucial Ballistix is similar.

How much would they draw in comparison?

You mean the LEDs versus the RAM?  It's at least a 10x difference in power even at lower clock speeds.  Most RAM uses between 3-10 watts per stick...and I'd be shocked if they LEDs they're using get anywhere close to a watt.

didnt think it'll be that much power per stick..

It's not much with only a few sticks - and that's active power too.  Idle is lower.
