EF-20A-1 Electronic Flare  "LIGHTNING" Rescue Strobe

" When the spray settled after all our testing, the EF-20A-1 Lightning Electronic Flare from North American Survival Systems had out-shone its competitors and garnered top meter readings, the brightest light signature at 100 yards, and most noticeable light at .62 nautical miles. This is our recommended light for manual activation."  Practical Sailor MOB Light Field Test.   (Feb Issue 2016)

"Unfortunately there are some models of USCG approved devices intended to aid in saving lives that have functions not defined in the USCG regulations as necessary, which operate off the devices only battery. Obviously, an unlimited second function usage on the same battery can destroy the ability of the device to meet the USCG regulation operating time"

The EF-20A-1 Lightning has only one function, for you to be seen and be safe.

5 times brighter than any competitor product.

Congratulations on your Feb 2016 review in Practical Sailor magazine. EF-20A-1 should have been the best choice as it surely is mine. For my money I want the brightest signal available. Think about it: How often do you cruise in the dark? Most boaters are out when summer days are longer than nights and a good day is bright and sunny. We wear sunglasses because the bright sunlight is constantly flashing off the waves. If I fall overboard I need a light that can been seen in the daylight; the brighter the better. The choice of 200 candela over 40 candela is a no brainer. Other features are nice but they don't help you get seen. PS also discusses the apathy people exhibit to city light distractions and how no one will look for you if no one misses you. But whenever I go boating I'm with a crew and If I go overboard they will be looking. Here again, a light that stands out is essential. And if the boat sinks we will all be flashing EF-20A-1 strobes together, the brightest available. I have two of these great little lights and definitely want more for my crew, my cars, my hiking bag and my friends. Could the EF-20A-1 be better? Definitely. PS is right about the need for an extender. Water activation would be nice as would floatation with a tether. And throw in a quart of drinking water too. Seriously, it's a great product. Keep percolating those good ideas.
