USCG & SOLAS Approved IMO LSA, & CE Approvals Pending (as of 5/20/14)
The Firefly PRO Waterbug is a SOLAS-approved strobe light with a built-in water activation feature that will automatically activate once submerged. It is one of the brightest and most feature-packed strobe lights on the market today. And it is offered at a very attractive price!
The Firefly PRO Waterbug boasts a light output of over 41 candela per strobe for up to 56 hours, using standard alkaline batteries. That's 45% brighter than other USCG approved PFD lights.
The Firefly PRO also incorporates a new generation of revolutionary Wide Light Emitting LEDs to produce a 360 super bright flash with a visibility of over 3.2 miles.
With four functions, you can toggle between the Armed mode for automatic water activation, the ultra-bright Strobe Light, or the SOS Strobe to visually alert Search and Rescue of your location. Then you can switch to the Steady-On feature for close up recovery operations.
