cheap, lithium-friendly emergency flashers?

Hello all, cool board here. My first of many questions; are there any battery-powered emergency flashers (for automotive use) that work well with lithiums? Either DL123s or Energizer AAs are fine. I'm hoping for something affordable, as a flasher that I might put on the roadway might get squashed or forgotten.

Thanks for any pointers.

I picked up some "electro-flares" a few years back at an automotive store that have worked well for me. If I remember correctly they were around $3 to $5 for a 2 pack. They came with button-cell batteries, and the only downside (other than not being ultra durable) is that they flash, so you need at least a couple to remain visible. I'll check and see if I can find an address or website and let you know.

Hello again,
The Electro Flares were made by custom accessories. They last 24 hours when acitvated, and have a 5 year shelf life. I would check local automotive store, along with wal-mart/k-mart/target if you are interested. I know that there are also ones made for police use (http://www.dalmark.com/police.html), but these are much more expensive. Personally I perfer a couple of sets of the electro flares, I have used them and they see to get the job done. Hope this helps.

I have a couple of Lightman xenon strobes in my truck that I carry for emergencies/breakdowns. They operate on AA batteries and come with attachments for mounting on belts or clothing as well as suction and magnet mounts. I purchased mine from http://www.wsdarley.com

Mike, who is also selling the dummy AA batteries in the BST area, is also selling these 5 LED mulit-mode blinking safety lights on his site for $2.50 each here:

I recently bought some similar at Sports Authority for $5.95 each. Needless to say, they will be returned!
