Travel Smoke Detector, Personal Alarm, and LED Flashlight in one!
FlareSafe is an indispensable three-in-one travel safety product that has been widely praised by travel experts. (When was the last time you saw a smoke detector in Turkey ... or Morocco ... Nepal ... Honduras ...) Time magazine recently reviewed FlareSafe (July 2007). Its verdict: "For extra security, pack a FlareSafe ... [it] could save your life".
FlareSafe combines three safety features in one compact unit:
* A smoke detector that will alert you to a fire in your hotel, B&B or hostel.
* A security alarm that lets others know if you run into trouble.
* A powerful LED flashlight.
If smoke is detected by its infrared optics, a 110-decibel alarm siren (which can be heard up to 500 meters away and which lasts for more than 60 hours) sounds and the flashlight activates. The purpose behind FlareSafe is a serious one -- to save lives. After the Childers hostel fire in Australia in June 2000 in which 15 backpackers died, the developers started thinking about what travelers could take with them to avoid a similar catastrophe. FlareSafe is constructed of tough military-grade plastics, with batteries included. Compact (15cm by 4.5cm) and lightweight. (Eight ounces / 230 grams.)
