This week's gadget from the Giz Wiz is the Weems and Plath SOS Distress Light! It's 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 electronic flare never expires which solves the big and annoying challenge of flare disposal. This floating electronic flare can be hand-held, tethered, or hoisted aloft. It's visible up to 10+ nautical miles and lights for up to 60 hours unlike traditional flares which last minutes or less. It requires 3 “C” batteries, not included. With the included SOS flag, this combo fulfills all Coast Guard requirements for marine distress signals. It's made in the USA.
This is a great safety device for boaters! Under $100.00. Seen on Amazon at the link below with Amazon Prime for $99.99, so it's free shipping for Prime Members. It's elsewhere on Amazon too for the same price PLUS shipping.
