OUR ELECTRONIC FLARE IS THE ONLY ALTERNATIVE TO TRADITIONAL FLARES

The SOS Distress Light is the first and ONLY LED Visual Distress Signal Device that meets U.S. Coast Guard requirements to completely replace traditional pyrotechnic flares. Unlike traditional flares, this electric flare never expires which solves the challenge of flare disposal.

This floating LED marine flare can be hand-held, tethered, or hoisted aloft. It runs up to 60 hours, unlike traditional flares which last minutes or less.
