FAQ

How is Help Flash used in emergency mode?
Place it directly on a metal surface (on the roof, the door, the guardrail, etc.) and it will automatically turned on, emitting an intense beam of amber light visible at long distance, in the 360 ??degrees around its support axis.
What is the best place to put it in a car?
Always the highest place, since it will be visible from further away, and always as horizontal as possible from the ground, due to the direction of the light beam. In the case of automobiles, the roof will be preferred, including the arc of the chassis in cases of glass roofs, or in the driver’s door panel (try to put it always the most exposed part to the traffic). Make sure it is not hidden by external elements of the vehicle such as roof fixing systems.
What is the best place to put it on a motorcycle?
Always look for the most visible, high and exposed, such as the metal structure itself (a mirror bar, tank, metal fairing, or even on the side stand, etc.), although the ideal place in these cases will be the guardrail of the road, or any metal support, a few meters behind the vehicle, especially in curved sections or low visibility, where the personal risk is much higher. In case of not having a metallic support, we can place the beacon on the saddle or the trunk, activating it manually by turning the lid of the device.
Why doesn’t Help Flash have an external switch?
For safety reasons. Its internal induction switch allows to place it and activate it in safe places, avoiding dangerous electrical contacts when it’s necessary to work near flammable substances. It is also a completely intuitive system, just attach it to a metal surface and that’s it.
Does Help Flash replace warning triangles?

With the recent modification of the Vehicle Regulations in its annex XI, it is recommended to use a luminous device such as Help Flash, which fulfills a series of technical requirements, and is included within the signal V-16, danger signaling device , as an optional element. Order PCI / 810/2018, of July 27, by which the annexes II, XI and XVIII of the General Vehicle Regulations are modified, approved by Royal Decree 2822/1998, of December 23. “… the stop of a vehicle on the road due to breakdown or accident implies a serious risk to traffic. The rear-end collisions with vehicles stopped in such circumstances are very common and as a result in many cases they imply serious injury or even death to the occupants of the vehicle … “… To offer more protection for the driver and the rest of the occupants of the vehicle that is stopped on the road due to a breakdown or accident while waiting for the arrival of the roadside assistance services, it is allowed the placement of a luminous amber device on the outside of the vehicle, which is off-grid powered, with high-visibility range and that remains stable on a flat surface. This is about allowing the use of an easy-to-use device that solves the problem of the lack of real and effective signaling of the vehicle. “Regarding the warning triangles, nothing has changed, they are still mandatory as vehicle endowment, but not so its placement, leaving it up to the driver to assess whether he can leave the vehicle in a completely safe situation. If it is not, the driver must remain inside of the vehicle with the restraint systems fastened. Therefore, the use of help flash is ALWAYS recommended, whether or not it is safe to walk 50 meters one way and 50 meters back on the road to place the triangle. From Help Flash we recommend that you do not.

What are the characteristics that a luminous device must comply with in order to be certified as a V-16 signal?
In the modification of the Vehicle Regulations, a section 4 is added to the V-16 signal ” Danger signaling device “, with the following content:” 4. Optionally, in addition, a self-colored luminous device with the following characteristics may be placed outside the immobilized vehicle: 1. Irradiation: the optical system shall be designed so that the light covers a 360 degree horizontal visibility field and in vertical a minimum ± 8 degrees up and down. 2. Luminous intensity: the intensity must be at grade 0, between 40 and 80 effective candles, for at least 30 minutes. 3. Power supply: autonomous through a battery that guarantees a minimum of 90% of its nominal capacity after 18 months of installation in the equipment. 4. Degree of IP protection: at least it will be IP54. 5. Stability: the equipment will be designed to be stable on a flat surface, not moving in front of a current of air that exerts a dynamic pressure of 180 Pa, in the most unfavorable direction for its stability. 6. Flash frequency: between 0.8 and 2 Hz. 7. The operation of the light will be guaranteed at a temperature of -10 oC and 50 oC. 8. Conducting the tests: the verification of compliance with the characteristics defined in paragraphs a) through g) above will be carried out in an accredited laboratory according to the UNE EN-ISO 17025 standard by the National Accreditation Entity (or by any another National Accreditation Body designated by another Member State in accordance with EC Regulation No. 765/2008 and under the conditions set forth in Article 11 of that Regulation) for UNECE Regulation 65. The laboratory, if the tests are satisfactory, will issue a certificate in this sense, indicating the marks that identify this condition in the device’s shade.
Why doesn't it have a cable?
40% of the breakdowns are electrical, which would make it impossible to connect the device to the vehicle. In these circumstances it would be even impossible to turn on the hazard lights so the use of help flash would be essential.
Why a 9V battery?
Because this type of batteries are for commercial use and easy to find, do not suffer from sulfation at the terminals and offer high performance. They also guarantee that the device will be in perfect conditions of use even after 5 years, depending on storage conditions. The use of high quality 6LR61 alkaline batteries such as the VARTA MAX TECH is recommended.
Can I use rechargeable batteries?

Yes, but we do not recommend it in any case, as rechargeable batteries lose their energy storage capacity in a few days, they have less autonomy, and Help Flash is essentially a signaling device for accidental use, so it should always be available with the fully charged battery.

Does the battery run out if I do not use the device for a long period of time?

No, Help Flash works mechanically, by mechanical magnetic induction, which prevents the discharge of the battery during its useful life. Even after 5 years without using it, it keeps the 90% of the capacity. However, it is advisable to replace the battery every 2 or 3 years if we do not use it, due to the harsh storage conditions that can occur inside a vehicle (high and low temperatures, humidity, etc.).

How do I replace the battery?

Turn the white lid to “OPEN” and remove it. The battery will be visible and you can easily replace it.

How do you activate it manually?

To activate amber flashing-light mode, rotate the base to the left until the guide is aligned with “ON”. To activate white working light mode, rotate the base to the right until flashing light stops, then rotate it back to “ON”. To turn off the device, rotate the base to the lock position “OFF” until it clicks.
