The new White and IR LED light output of the EF-30A-1 Magnum Electronic Flare is an amazingly bright combination of signal intensity in a compact design to carry inside your life vest or in your pocket.  The USCG, Military, Border Patrol, and Police are currently requiring IR capability in any new distress signal product because it is difficult to see white LEDs with NVG equipment.  The EF-30A-1 Magnum Electronic Flare is a handheld LED strobe that is visible to the naked eye as well as Search and Rescue assets using night vision goggles.  A vital piece of safety gear for boaters, kayakers, and all outdoor enthusiast.

It is also a perfect traffic alerting device for use on the highway,  one belongs in every car glove box for roadside emergencies.  Hikers, campers, and Kayakers rate it #1 strobe to carry.

    As a Ex SAR proffessional with 40 years offshore experience and also a serious ocean Surfski and Kayak paddler, I have used the EF20 Electronic Distress strobe for around 3 years recently upgrading to the new EF30.

    I have owned and used almost every type of Distress equipment on the market the EF30 is robust compact and lightwieght and can be easily and unobtrusively worn at all times.

    I do not venture out in the sea without one.
    The EF30 is without doubt the best Electronic Visual Distress Signal on the market today.
