TigerFlare CR123 LED Road Flares replace dangerous perchlorate chemical flares and greatly improves workplace safety for First Responders.

A single CR123 lithium battery is easily accessed and replaced by removing 2 screws in the polycarbonate housing.

TigerFlares are tough enough to survive most drive-overs and sealed tight for underwater use. An embedded magnet sticks the TigerFlare to most any metal surface.

Capital costs are recovered after just half a dozen uses in the field when contrasted against single-use chemical flares.

Performance

TigerFlare LED Road Flares can be seen up to 1000 feet away during daylight hours and more than twice that distance at night.

A choice of LED colours allows the user to select TigerFlares to match visibility conditions. During clear weather, red offers the best performance while fog and smoke conditions are best overcome by amber and blue LEDs. We offer dual-colour combinations of light emitting diodes that provide a solution for both.

Operation

TigerFlare CR123s are non-rechargeable. The batteries will have a shelf life of up to 10 years and must be replaced with a lithium CR-123 3.0V battery when exhausted.

All TigerFlares are equipped with 9 operational modes. The first 4 modes offer a standard rotation pattern plus either a quad pulse, single pulse, or alternating pulse modes frequently used by First Responders. For other applications, there are flash patterns that can function as a flashlight or as an emergency S-O-S beacon.

The new TigerFlare's activation button is improved for easy operation.

The operator cycles through from one mode to another by quickly depressing the on/off button which is flush to the surface and part of the TigerFlare shell. If you have any difficulty depressing the button, use your thumbnail or a set of keys.

To retain a preferred mode, simply depress the sequence button for approximately 3 seconds which further causes the TigerFlare to deactivate. When you reactivate it, the same sequence should be the default setting.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Costs are always an issue with our budget. How do we justify this new purchase?

    The cost of chemical flares are going up while the cost of TigerFlares have gone down. The $90 outlay for a TigerFlare Six Pack is recovered as soon as their repeated deployment exceeds the one-time use of less than 50 or so chemical flares.

  • Where are TigerFlares manufactured?

    Same country that makes Apple iPhones and Dell computers and Sony televisions and Levi Jeans. Same country that creates the vast majority of the world's electronics. China.

  • I would prefer to buy from a domestic manufacturer. Why are TigerFlares not made here?

    From 2001 to 2008, more than 40,000 manufacturing facilities shut down in the USA and many of these reopened in countries where low costs allowed shareholders to make more money. That situation is rapidly changing as wages in China are rising to international levels. Eventually manufacturers and their shareholders will be forced to return to North America and when that happens, electronics may once again be produced domestically.

  • How long do TigerFlares last in the field?

    The most common settings for the TigerFlare are the rotation and quad pulse settings. These are also the greatest draw on power and will exhaust the rechargeable battery in the TigerFlare Six Pack in 9 hours. In the TigerFlare CR123, the battery will last up to 15 hours at this setting. The single pulse setting will last 60 hours to 100 hours respectively.

  • Recharge or Replace? Is the Six Pack or the CR123 the best fit for us?

    There is no single answer for this. The benefits of the the Six Pack include effectively zeroing ongoing costs of operation and the easy deployment offered by the case design. The nature of rechargeable batteries is that they do not hold a charge as long as a replaceable battery. This gives the CR123 an advantage in the field with their longer run times and ability to swap out to new batteries on the spot.

    Importantly, the benefits of either the TigerFlare Six Pack or the TigerFlare CR123 far outweigh the various costs of the chemical flares they replace.

  • How much weight can a TigerFlare support before damage occurs?

    The TigerFlare should withstand most vehicles driving over it in the course of deployment. In our own testing, we found that the TigerFlare withstood the weight of a city bus driving over one on a smooth concrete floor. That's not a guarantee, just our experience. The tough polycarbonate case is designed to protect the battery and electronics from the elements and other abuses, but of course nothing is indestructible.

  • Where can we buy CR123 batteries and how much should they cost?

    A quick Google search for 'CR123 lithium batteries bulk' shows over 60,000 returns. The lowest price we found was under $0.80 cents each and the well known brands were selling for more than twice that.

    We are selling the same ones that are original equipment with the TigerFlare for a buck.

  • Why are TigerFlares priced so much lower than competing brands?

    This is a real question that we get all the time and not something that our marketing department made up.

    Our answer is that we make less profit than other companies. Sometimes a lot less.

  • How quickly can our TigerFlare order be shipped?

    Your order is shipped within the week provided it is in stock.

    If not, it becomes part of our next factory order which can take as little as 6 weeks and as long as 8 weeks to be built and shipped to our warehouse.
