Elec­tronic flare

Yachting World - - New Gear -

The lat­est ver­sion of this Odeo elec­tronic flare is an LED de­vice with a num­ber of im­prove­ments on the five-year-old Odeo Mk3. The new unit is smaller than its pre­de­ces­sor and adds an in­fra-red LED sig­nal that can be picked up by res­cue ves­sels and air­craft equipped with night vi­sion de­vices. Il­lu­mi­na­tion time has been ex­tended by 25% to eight hours and the bat­tery can be re­placed by the user. As the Odeo Dis­tress is bat­tery-pow­ered and not a con­ven­tional py­rotech­nic, trans­port­ing the de­vice is not a prob­lem even when fly­ing.

Price: around £90. www.da­nia­mant.com
