Wow! Much easier to store.
- 04/05/2024
I bought this to replace another electronic flare. This one is much smaller and brighter than my old one, much easier to store it aboard our 25' boat. I really like that it is made in the US, too.
5.0 out of 5 stars A reliable and effective distress signaling solution at a great price
- 04/05/2024
I decided to purchase this product mainly because it was the most affordable option available on Amazon. Despite its low price, it seems to be a reliable and effective distress signaling solution. While cost was the initial factor in my decision, I've been pleasantly surprised by its quality and performance. Definitely a smart choice for budget-conscious boaters!
No more dangerous and limited life flares on board! Great product, a potential lifesaver!

I have been searching for U.S. Coast Guard approved electronic flare for quite some time. This product is perfect, it meets the USCG requirements, saves me money buy not having to replace expired and dangerous flares. It is amazingly bright and the replaceable batteries last longer than the USCG requires. I highly recommend this product to anyone who could find themselves in a remote location and needing help, it is a potential lifesaver!
