USCG approvedAuthor Tom Hale writes in Chesapeake Bay Magazine: “Pyrotechnic flares are expensive and have a short shelf life, only 42 months from the date of manufacture,” he continues: “carrying three flares as required (on all boats 16’ or over) gives you no more than nine minutes of illuminated display (individual flares burn for less than three minutes).” In the case of an emergency aboard your vessel, you may not have the bandwidth to handle your emergency, whether it is medical, electrical or otherwise, as well as “light and then hang on to three different individual flares for a mere 9 minutes of dazzling light, hoping someone notices,”
(Chesapeake Bay Magazine)

“I’ve been on and around boats all of my life and thank God I’ve never had to use a flare. But if I did, I don’t know if I’d worry more about being rescued or that I’d burn myself or the boat with the flares. So, I’m really happy that because you guys came up with this light, I can check that one off of my list. And, my six-year-old grandson can hold it and turn it on, no problem.”
