Reviews (1)

Emergency Distress Strobe Light

Model Number: 3971.3 (Carded) 3971.4 (Bulk)

The all-new Firefly PRO Waterbug is a SOLAS-approved strobe light with a built-in water activation feature that will automatically activate once submerged. With 4 activation functions, toggle between the armed mode for automatic water activation, ultra-bright strobe light or the SOS strobe to visually alert Search and Rescue of your location, then toggle to the Steady-On feature for close up recovery operations. 

The remarkable cool white color LEDs produce a 360° beam of light that is over 41 candelas bright allowing for visibility of over 3 miles.  With the all-new microprocessor and energy efficient electronics, the Firefly PRO operates continuously for over 56 hours, that's 48 hours longer than SOLAS/USCG regulations and twice as long as competitors. The cool white color of the LED strobe has no yellow tint allowing the light to be seen at greater distances.

Our cool white light has no yellow tinting which allows for a more visible light beam that can be seen at greater distances.  The innovative new wide light emission LEDs produce a 360° beam of light (41 candela) allowing for visibility of over 3 miles.   With an energy efficient microprocessor and redesigned electronics, the Firefly PRO boasts maximum operation life in the harshest of conditions.  With a single set of AA alkaline batteries, the Firefly PRO will continuously strobe for over 56 hours or use the Steady-On feature for 28 hours. That is twice as long as our competitors and exceeds USCG and SOLAS requirements by over 48 hours.

The new compact size will easily fit inside an inflatable life jacket or pocket for comfortable wear-ability.  The military spec casing is rugged enough to withstand years of abuse and the harshest environments.  The two lashing loops and included Velcro strap make mounting the Firefly PRO to your life jacket, belt or pack extremely easy so that the strobe light can be readily accessible the moment you need it.

Firefly Pro Waterbug - Non-Standard Usage

By FredS York, PA on April 19, 2016 Believe it or not, I purchased this device for on the road travel. I am getting a Commercial Drivers License soon and I started thinking about some of the major accidents that are caused by fog, white-outs and poor visibility conditions. Also, night visibility conditions if you break down or pull off the road for some reason. I figured that I could activate the strobe and attach it to the back of the vehicle while stopped in any of those situations. This might serve to attract others attention and hopefully avoid an accident. The light is bright and the flashing will promote greater awareness by other drivers. Also, the battery life is very long. Why the waterproof unit? It might be an asset in heavy downpours because I will not have to be concerned about the position in which it hangs allowing it to leak water into the unit! I figure this will also be good to take along in my personal vehicle as well. Maybe I will purchase a second unit eventually. I like the features of steady light, strobe or SOS. The water activated feature is less necessary, but you could hang it on a vehicle with the water activation on so that it would only come on if it rains or sleets or maybe heavy snow. Like I said before, I am more interested in the waterproof feature. I believe this will be a great safety product to have with me on the road. I do not see this product being a disappointment even if it gets little use. It may still save lives if I only have to use it once. It would also be a great personal device to carry with you if you leave the vehicle to attract attention and not get run down!
