This is a review of the AA 3-in-1 Emergency Beacon
The AA 3 in 1 Emergency beacon arrives in a surprisingly small package, weighing only 200g this little device packs quite the punch. Designed to be of assistance in a multitude of emergency situations when out on the road.
The lower section of the device serves as a 360 flashing beacon light which provides very bright red light using LED’s that can be seen from 500 metres away.
To the end of the device is an additional light for general use, however I would recommend buying a extra torch for general use and using this torch only in emergencies to preserve the batteries (which are included). To the other side of the device is a strong magnet which means you can turn the torch or beacon on, attach the magnet end to your car allowing you to do something else such as checking under the bonnet, calling the emergency services or your break down recovery.
Added to the above elements car evacuation features such as the seat cutter and the robust hammer to shatter car window glass. The seat cutter is simple to use you will just need to remember to hold at a particular angle to catch the blade on the seat belt. The hammer itself is easy to use and just requires you to strike the window with the steel point to the head of the device.
This is an extremely handy tool the only two elements for consideration is that it doesn’t come with a mount to use in the car and that it is worth familiarising yourself with where things are on the tool, how they work and that the batteries are charged.
