Looks well made but not tested yet... ;)


Funny I'm asked to provide a review on something that I'll use if my boat sinks... so not tested yet in real life situations!
<br>But it looks well made, it flashes when activated and it is obvious that it can be switched on, even with wet hands... Best I could give you!
