If you become stranded on the side of the road at night, it’s important for everyone’s safety to be seen by other drivers. The EzyFlare is a simple-to-use electronic device that gives off bright rotating and flashing LED signals, which can be seen up to 8,000 feet away. The eight-inch-tall light is waterproof and is considered safer than traditional flares since there is zero risk of the unit causing a fire or burning anyone. A two-flare-pack retails for $35 — you supply the four AA batteries (that provide up to 12 hours of operation) — and can be purchased from www.firesupplydepot.com and other online retailers.
