It happens—a lot. A U.S. roadside assistance service reports that in one year it received more than 28 million calls for roadside aid. How prepared are you? During a breakdown, you’ll wish you had more than a smartphone light. Meet autoAlert, the all-in-one safety light that addresses all your lighting needs in an emergency: a powerful flashlight; a wide-angle work light for under-the-hood repairs; and warning lights to make your vehicle visible to oncoming traffic.
Constructed with military-grade anodized aerospace aluminum, autoAlert resists corrosion, drops and intrusive weather. Its brushed metal shell, designed to handle rugged use, creates a handsome, high-tech exterior.
In high mode, autoAlert’s focused 220-lumen beam casts light on objects more than 1,000 feet away. In the energy-saving low mode (up to 15 hours at 50 lumens), the beam provides ample light for navigation and close-proximity work.
Built into the flashlight’s core, autoAlert’s array of 18 LEDs projects a swath of light that is both wide and deep—highly beneficial to people making repairs in tight places. Comes in handy under the sink at home, too.
autoAlert’s handle includes a neodymium magnet, a rare-earth mineral magnet that is the strongest type of commercially available permanent magnet. Attach it to a metallic surface and, voilà, you have a well-lighted, hands-free work area.
In strobe mode, a row of 10 red LEDs (also built into the handle) flashes a high-visibility warning signal that alerts oncoming traffic to the whereabouts of your disabled vehicle—all without the use of road flares.

You have two options:
1) Hold the power button 1 second at any stage in the cycle to shut off the light. This can be done in any mode.
2) After 5 seconds of continuous operation in any mode, press the power button once to shut off the light.
Yes. With the light off, press and hold the power button 3 seconds. The high beam will briefly activate, then go dark. This signals the light is in lock mode. When the power button is now pushed, the main light will only flash 3 times to indicate it is locked.
To unlock it, press and hold the power button 3 seconds. The main light will flash 3 times, briefly go dark, then switch to a continuous beam. That signals the light is unlocked.
