The ODEO Distress Flare is the next generation of Electronic Visual Distress Signal Device (eVDSD). Designed for more personal use than the Mk3, its lightweight, safe performance means that it is incredibly useful for any outdoor activity. The smaller size makes the ODEO a perfect choice for sailing, kayaking, hiking, mountaineering and even diving with its 50m IP69 rating.
Users wanted something smaller, more powerful, that lasted longer (now 9 hours with lithium AA cells) and with additional infra-red capability for night time search and rescue. The new design has all of this built in and as its ODEO, it comes with a simple to operate activation, built SOS signal and user replaceable batteries.
A waterproof Neoprene bag is available for storage and includes fixing points for your equipment or lifejacket.
The Mk3 will still also be available as we find this has become popular as a distress signal for vessels with people fixing their
cabins to easily grab in an emergency.
