With thousands of 5-star reviews, what is it about this safety flare that drivers are raving about?
Note: After reading, you'll probably never risk another day without these in your vehicle kit...
As a Firefighter, I've seen it all. We're never sure what we'll find each time we leave the hall, but it's always a window into the lives of perfect strangers — often on the worst day of their lives.
We get dispatched to calls ranging from highrise blazes to simple slips, trips, and falls, and everything in between.
But the calls we get most often are major traffic incidents.
Thankfully, I found a product that keeps you safe on the road no matter what.
It's called The Starlight Safety Flare.
No fire, no sparks, like traditional road flares — this genius gadget emits 360 degrees of ultra-bright light from an array of 15 highly visible white and orange LEDs.
The LEDs will last up to 20,000 hours. Plus, they're crushproof, shatterproof, and waterproof.
I've even seen these LED safety flares get driven over or soaked by the rain, and they keep shining.
The Starlight Safety Flare was designed in America for first responders: firefighters, highway patrol, coast guards, and EMS.
That's why we always keep a pack in our fire trucks for every call.
These flares are great for diverting traffic when you're stranded on the shoulder or for drawing attention to yourself when you need help or waiting for a tow.
They turn on with the push of a button and have 9 lighting modes, including an SOS signal to alert first responders like me from up to 2,800 feet away in any weather.
I know from personal experience that seeing our destination lit up from miles away helps us save more lives.
The American engineering behind The Starlight Safety Flare also makes it perfect for:
Here are some other things I love about these LED road-safety flares:
They're Industrial Strength
Even though these flares weigh less than a deck of cards, they're so durable you could run over them with your truck, and they will still work. Now, that's tough!
Their Dependable Functionality
The LED safety flare is also air-tight, which means the batteries inside are protected from the elements that kill battery life.
In other words, the batteries are virtually guaranteed to work any time you need them.
The Ultra-Strong Magnetic Base
The magnets on the back of each safety flare allow you to position them on the side of a door, on your back bumper, or on any metallic surface.
The magnets are also covered by a plastic coating that protects your car from scratches while still delivering a strong magnetic force that keeps it in place.
The Built-In Utility Light
Along with the bright emergency LEDs, each safety flare also has a built-in utility light on the front.
You can easily use it to help find your keys, change a tire, or avoid slips and falls.
A Great Hook Attachment
Each flare also has a great hook attachment that allows you to hang it anywhere.
I bring mine backcountry camping and hang them in my tent for perfect reading lights.
I have 12 safety flares in my personal truck and grab some as gifts for everyone I care about because knowing they're protected when they're on the road lets me rest easy after a long day of calls.
Very good emergency lights. Very bright and safe to use around an accident. Customer service is awesome
Nice nylon carrying case with instructions for use printed on it. Very compact for the larger size I bought. I got two - one for house, one for car.
Are they magnetic? Do they adhere to the car?
Absolutely! The Starlight is magnetic on the back, allowing you to easily attach to any steel surface including vehicles. The flares also have a fold-out hook allowing you to hang on guardrails, tree branches and fences.
Are they durable? Waterproof?
The Starlight is extremely durable and waterproof. You can run over them with a vehicle and they will not break.
Are they bright enough to be seen by search and rescue?
Yes! The Starlight can be seen up to one mile away. You can also select the emergency lighting setting to flash as a strobe light, grabbing attention.
Are batteries included?
Please note that batteries are not included due to shipping restrictions. Each device takes 3 AAA batteries.
