As stated, White Lightning is NOT Lithium Grease. It is specifically designed as a chain lubricant. It is parrafin (wax) based. The parrafin acts as the carrier for the lubricant. The theory (and works very well in "real" world situations) is that as the wax dries, it flakes off. When it does this, it takes dirt and sand with it. It cleans as it protects. The drawback to this is that you must reapply often (every other ride). I've used this product for about 4 years and have been very satisfied with the results.
As far as lithium grease, any will work about the same. I personally use the Finish Line Product with fair to adequate results. I use this for about 75% of my work. For hub rebuilds I use BullShot. It a red lube and provides smoother action to the bearings.
Just my .02
