Odeo Distress Flare
Like the Odeo Mk3 that was launched five years ago, the latest version of this electronic flare is an LED device, but has a number of improvements.
The new unit is smaller than its predecessor, yet also adds an infra-red LED signal that can be picked up by night vision devices. Illumination time has been extended to 8 hours, a 25% improvement, when fitted with userreplacable lithium batteries. Activation is simple and can easily be carried out wearing gloves or with cold hands. The compact size and long activation time makes it ideal both in a main flare pack and as a grab bag item. Additionally, as the Odeo Distress is battery powered, transport is not a problem, even when flying.
