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?
Why doesn't it have a cable?
Why a 9V battery?
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.
