With winter bearing down on us and days growing shorter, it’s more likely than ever that if you have a problem on the road, it’s going to be at night, early morning, or dusk. Whether you work for the utilities, have work trucks that sometimes need to stick out onto the pavement, or you just spend a fair amount of time in your car, there’s one smart piece of equipment no vehicle should be without – the LED road flare.
LED road flares such as the Aervoe Rechargeable Super LED 1165 are so superior to the old so-called “safety” flares it hardly needs to be explained. But I’m fired up, so I’m going to tell you anyway. The old flares are downright hazardous. They burn at an incredibly high temperature. (Sorry Grandma, wherever you are, for burning a hole in your astroturf.) They let off dangerous fumes. You cannot attach them to the side of your car. Nor can you leave them burning in an enclosed area. And you certainly can’t recharge them.
(Cue the triumphant music) LED road flares have a long list of benefits including being submersible, reusable, rechargeable, and aside being made of reinforced plastic, they’re better for the environment. A full kit of 6 flares in a chargeable carrying case is also available if you foresee a major traffic jam. Both the kit and the single flares come with wall charging or car charging adapters so they are ready when you are.
Traffic safety is all about letting drivers know what’s happening early enough so they can slow down and approach cautiously. LED flare batons like the Aervoe Baton Traffic Flare have the same extended visibility as the flat flares, but they can also be used to direct traffic, and who among us hasn’t wanted to direct traffic with a big flashing baton?
Like the LED Flares, the batons have a strong magnet at the base that will attach to almost any non-stainless steel metal surface. The magnets are easily strong enough to attach to the side of a car or truck and the extended battery will last all through the night. A fully charged LED flare will last up to 10 hours, and the bright LEDs can be seen up to half a mile away.
But wait! There’s more! They’re also crush-proof and corrosion-proof. They’re not going to corrode like the old D-batteries in your flashlight. And even if they are run over by the knucklehead rookie on your team, these flares just keep working. Order them before you need them. You’ll be glad you did.
