ACK Review: While doing a night dive on a local lake I used my new Princeton Tec Eco Flare Personal Locator Light so that I could be easily identified by everyone in our drive party. The feedback I received from my group was that I could easily be seen from long and short distances. I believe this is due to the different setting options on the Tec Eco Flare. At one time I even dropped it into the water while re-entering my kayak and was able to make the easy retrieval due to the brightness of the flare. The fact that it is water proof up to 100m gave me the peace of mind that there would be no water damage.

Review:
The incandescent mode and red flashing mode actually describe 2 different bulbs. The product has no storage receptacle for the bulb you're not currently using. Unless you have very slender fingers, it's difficult to grasp and remove the bulb because it's seated at the bottom of the concave reflector. It's also a challenge to insert a bulb, since it has 2 little wire prongs that must be inserted into the openings of 2 tiny tubes. You can't see the openings because the bulb blocks their view as you're inserting the bulb. A funnel shaped extension at the end of each tube would have been helpful in guiding the wire prongs into the tubes. In short, don't plan to change bulbs in field conditions. The thin wire of the little "key ring" doesn't seem strong enough for securely attaching the light.

Great as a back up light, this is not meant as your main source of light and it was purchased for back up and safety, cheap insurance.

Excellent light. Very bright. Great for a personal locator on a life jacket.

Very Very Dim, not worth carrying. Switching bulbs is a true pain, one bulb kills battery, the other is like I said, very very dim.

The light is just right to keep securely attached to a life vest. I keep the intermittent blinking bulb in it now. I have a Princeton Tec headlight for better illumination, but it's good to have a light that you know will be with you at all times. Sometimes dusk just comes in quickly on an evening that is clouding up, especially in the fall.
