HOKENA LED Road Flares Car Emergency Kit – Roadside Safety Beacon Warning Disc Lights for Vehicles Truck Boat – 3 Pack with Seatbelt Cutter

Short Review: I have never been a fan of regular flares.. they are messy (leave black marks), they can be dangerous, and they aren’t reusable! I saw these and had to give them a try! Yes, some improvements can be made (I’ll mention those below) but overall they are a solid design and a design that has multiple uses! Not just as a flare!

My planned uses include emergency kit in the car BUT I also plan to carry one while hiking, take them camping, and so on! These things are great and will be great for all activities!!

Pros
1.) Battery Powered – They operate on regular batteries so they are easy to change (includes the took to change) but this is also one of the improvements I can suggest.. Ever seen what happens to those batteries in emergency kits that are never used? They corrode! I would suggest maybe future versions use some sort of Lithium Battery that has a longer shelf life and less chance to corrode. But other than that, battery life rocks and this does include the battery! I would just suggest checking them from time to time and maybe running the flare for five or 10 mins to prevent the batteries from potential corrosion.

2.) Wonderful Quality

3.) Not heavy at all, they actually weigh less than real flares.. it’s going to make these great for camping! Or Hiking

4.) Get lost in the Smokies? Well hopefully not but if I do I will have one of these in my pack and one in each pack of folks with me!

5.) Carry case is very nice and will provide great protection in my vehicle

6.) Emergency hammer is a nice plus, howerver, mine didn’t come with any mounting hardware other than a mount.. this is one of my other suggestions for this product.. toss in a few screws to help mount the hammer..

7.) Value – I don’t know what I was expecting for the price, but not anything of this quality! I can actually see the seller getting more for this product.. these are nice

8.) Very bright! LEDs

9.) Each flare includes a hook and magnet so you can hang

10.) Mode includes a memory.. they will power on in the last mode you used. Great when using this as a tent light or something

11.) Includes flashlight mode so you can toss that crappy flashlight in your trunk

12.) Reusable and Environmentally friendly

13.) Rubber outter protection which is needed for any emergency or outdoor use

Feedback (Improvements):

1.) Battery – I suggest maybe using some sort of Lithium battery in future models.. not button cell but like a small CR123 battery or something

2.) Mounting hardware for the hammer

Asside from that, these seem perfect so far! A great idea very well done
