LED flares offer users a safer, long-lasting solution in comparison with pyrotechnic flares, although they are not officially SOLAS approved. Pryotechnic flares often only last around 30 seconds, where-as LED flares can last up to six hours. Furthermore, once a pyrotechnic flare has been used once, it will need to be replaced. LED flares can be used time and time again.
LED distress flares are also significantly safer and easier to store, with any worries associated with disposal eliminated. As the flares are battery powered, they can be safely posted or even carried in baggage on flights.
Recent advancements in technology have seen a significant improvement in the light output, with LED flares such as Ocean Signal RescueMe also featuring multiple modes of operation.
