The Odeo M3 is a new high visibility LED Strobe light. It is similar in size to traditional flares, but uses battery powered light emitting diodes.
Traditional flares will burn for around 30 seconds before extinguishing: the Odeo lights for around 5 hours at full illumination.
Whilst originally designed for marine use, its lightweight, safe performance means that it is incredibly useful for any outdoor activity. Mountaineering, skiing, expeditions... now any activity can benefit from the added safety and security of carrying a distress flare - without the unwanted dangers.
The Odeo is designed with consideration to SOLAS requirements, making it a genuine alternative to the pyrotechnic red hand held flare. The US Coast Guard is now leading the world in developing standards for electronic Visual Distress Signals (eVDS) as a someday replacement for the hand held pyrotechnic flare.
