Traditional flares will burn for around 30 seconds to a few minutes before extinguishing: The Odeo Flare™ “Runs” for around 5 hours at full illumination. Because no pyrotechnics are used, the Odeo Flare™ is totally safe, on or off, and because it uses
battery power (high power lithium iron-disulphide cells), it can even be safely mailed or carried in baggage on flights.
Whilst originally designed for marine use, it's lightweight, safe performance means that it is incredibly useful for any outdoor activity. Mountaineering, skiing, expeditions, on the road in your vehicle… now any activity can benefit from the added safety and security
of carrying a distress flare – without the unwanted dangers and travel restrictions on pyrotechnics.
The Odeo Flare™ is designed with consideration to SOLAS requirements, making it a genuine alternative to the pyrotechnic red hand held flare. USCG Type Approval is being sought to make it a legal alternative for recreational and commercial vessels.
Meanwhile, the only approval required for you to carry and use one of these, is yours.
