  • F.R.E.D. Light Flashing Roadside Emergency Disk (3 pk)

  • Wagan Tech F.R.E.D.: Flashing Roadside Emergency Disk

    F.R.E.D.

    Wagan Tech’s Flashing Roadside Emergency Disk (FRED) is a safe, bright and effective tool for warning other motorists of your emergency roadside situation. A safe alternative to road flares, the FRED Light is IP55 rated, shatterproof, extremely bright, and is a highly versatile and valuable tool no matter what your use. Use it at home or on the road, your friend FRED will not let you down!

    Hanging Hook/Stand + Magnet

    FRED has a flush fitting hook that can be used to hang FRED from a fixed object, or used as a stand to support FRED in an upright position for better visibility. The integrated super strong magnet ensures that FRED will stay in place on an iron (ferrous) metal surface such as a car body, fence post, mailbox, street light, handrail, car bumper, or road sign.

    Emergency Use at Home

    The FRED Light is not only for roadside use. Use FRED at home to identify your location so that first responders can easily find you. If you are in an emergency, seconds count. Placing a FRED Light on your house or curbside can make it easier for emergency personnel (Police, Fire, and Ambulance) to find your location.

    FRED's Included Bag

    Included with the 3-pack of FRED lights is a handy zippered storage bag that functions as good as it looks. The bag is designed to hold three FRED lights when not in use, and facilitates easy location of the FREDs when they are needed.

    F.R.E.D. LED Lights

    Trusted By Emergency and First Responders

    We constantly receive rave reviews of the FRED from all over the world. Many Police Departments, Sheriff’s Departments, Fire Departments, Ambulance companies, and Civil Services rely on our FRED Lights to keep them visible and out of harm’s way. Wagan Corporation thank those individuals for their dedicated service!

    Worklight-Flashlight

    The 3 white LED worklight is perfect for up-close work and can help act as an under the hood light. A perfect amount of light for finding the path at night, or keeping tabs of items during a roadside repair, the bright 3 LED worklight/Flashlight is a great addition to the FRED's already invaluable toolbox.

    IP55 Waterproof Rated

    The FRED Light is IP55 (Ingress Protected) which means that it can withstand most dust from entering its case and it can with stand low pressure water jets. For regular users, that means that the FRED is built tough; dust and water do not affect the FRED Light and it even floats too!

    For Use Anywhere

    FRED can be used for non-emergency use too. A great way to add party ambiance; use FRED as a neat floating pool light show, walkway or path marker, keep track of the kids at night, or marking your campsite, FRED’s uses are only limited by your imagination!

    New Upgraded Internals

    Our FRED has been redesigned with a new switch and perfected battery regulation. The redesigned switch is intuitively designed to allow easier mode manipulation through all of the FRED’s 10 lighting modes. Our resolved PCB allows the FRED to be stored for long periods with negligible battery drain.

    Compact and Tough

    Having a Polycarbonate case surrounded by a Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE) wrap, the FRED Light is shatterproof and well armored for the bumps and bruises of life. The TPE armor aids in better visibility of FRED, and gives a solid non-slip grip. With a shatterproof load capacity of up to 500kg, FRED is a tough light that anyone can use.

    Easy Battery Replacement

    Battery changes are simple. Just remove the two Phillips head screws and pry the case apart by one of the two tabs. The case will seem stiff to separate due to the seal on the body (which gives FRED the IP55 Waterproof rating). Once apart, the three AAA batteries will be visible in their tray and easily accessed for removal. Reassemble FRED in reverse order.

    Unlimited Use Options

    Having a flush fitting, multi-function hook and the super strong magnet back allow FRED to be used anywhere for any need; kids love the FRED too! With a high impact body and waterproof rating, FRED is a tough friend that is always there for you and will not let you down!

    These are nice little pucks, solidly built, bright, well sealed and lots of flash modes.

    That said, there are several minor problems with the product.

    1) The most severe problem with the product is that you can make it look off, without being off. I connected a multimeter between the light and the last battery on the negative side.
    If you turn the light off correctly (per the manual), by holding the button down until it goes out, there is no measurable current draw on the battery (0.0 ma).
    If you push the button cycling through modes, eventually the lights will go out. However, at this point it is NOT OFF. It may look off, but it is still drawing 1.21 milliamperes (ma) from the battery. While this not be very much current, it is definitely enough to kill the batteries in a few weeks. By comparison the "Solid on high" mode consumes the most current at 193.3 ma, and the "Solid on low" mode consumes the least (of the light-bearing modes) at 16.59 ma.

    It is very strange the product has a mode that makes it look off when it isn''t... I brought the device into a dark room with no lights on, and let my eyes adjust for a while.. the puck was definitely not emitting any light while drawing current. This is foolish and creates customer confusion, as it is possible to store them without realizing they are still on...

    All they needed to do was make it cycle straight from 2-red to 3-white mode at the end, rather than going into an "all off but still wasting batteries" mode. This way it would be impossible to think you turned it off when it isn''t... How hard is that? This just amounts to shoddy design and poor testing.

    2) Changing the batteries on these is quite difficult... They''ve left tabs for you to pry the lid off after you unscrew it, but these are quite tiny.. even bracing a screwdriver against my knuckle and prying against the tab takes a bit of work to get it open.. There is no notch in the lower half, so you can''t just stick a screwdriver in and pry, which would make it much easier to open. I know they wanted these to be tough and well sealed, but a larger tab or a lower-side notch to make opening easier would be an easy improvement.

    These two problems are somewhat synergistic... The lack of clear power off brings the risk of the light being dead when you need it. The difficulty changing the batteries means you''ll be cursing at the thing for quite a while trying to change them in an emergency...

    For these reasons I knock 2 stars off an otherwise excellent product. They''ll work for me, but I''ll have to be careful when putting them away. You should too!

    edit: added snapshots of my multimeter readings.

    DO NOT waste your money! For a product that (1) stakes its primary use in an emergency situation and (2) because of this, requires long-term storage inside a car during all four seasons, these magnificent pieces of junk have failed me 3 times now! Solution? The trio just went into my trash can and after wasting $40 of my money. While their design is almost genius and IF and WHEN they work they are really bright (not to mention the clever flashing program that are built-in), I am incredibly frustrated after needing them 3 times since 2013. Yes, I understand batteries corrode but in the case of these, they did so on a frequent basis (necessitating 9 AAA''s total for the three) and after the latest and final occurrence, the circuit boards that harbor the LEDs and logic card were completely trashed. One would think Wagan''s engineers would devise a better design to prevent this but not these. They are useless and in my case, failed me on a dark stretch of US54 in southern Kansas at 1130 PM. Having staked possibly my life and definitely my safety on these things, I was fooled by their slick looks and initial operation.

    This review is based on a comparison between the Wagan EL2639 FRED light vs. the Smittybilt L-1409 UFO light. Neither light has yet been field tested or tested against time.

    I wanted to buy about 6 of this type of light, and was leaning toward the Smittybilt, based on the slightly higher rating and the fact that it uses a CR123 battery. But because of the significant price difference (78% more for the Smittybilt at the time of this writing) I decided to buy one of each and compare them myself, to see if the price difference was worth it. Here are my preliminary observations of the two lights:

    Outer construction\design:
    Both lights are made very well, with a seemingly durable rubberized plastic (Orange vs. Black) molded around a water-tight inner housing made of a seemingly durable clear plastic. This inner clear plastic appears to be of equal thickness and durability on the two units. The outer rubberized plastic is a bit more robust feeling on the Smittybilt because it has 18 outer lugs vs. 12, and the lugs are bit larger. However, this also means that it has smaller LED window areas between each lug. In comparison, the Wagan has about 9/16" spacing between lugs vs. about 5/16" on the Smittybilt. This becomes very noticeable when viewing the unit from the side with the lights on, especially when viewing the Smittybilt in line with one of the 3 triangular points where you see less of the LEDs. Note: There are no LEDs at these 3 points, so although there are 18 lugs, there are actually 15 LEDs vs. 12 in the Wagan. Although the Wagan has fewer LEDs, I like having the larger window area for each one, as it makes them stand out more from the side. Also, it is worth considering the color of these units. Orange is certainly more visible when the lights are off, making it easier to find.
    Winner - Wagan

    Switch:
    Both lights use a similar electronic switch in which the button is flush with the housing. The Wagan is much easier to push and cycle through. The Smittybilt is much more difficult to push, however this may not be a bad thing if you are concerned about accidental activation in a pack or something. Although I don''t foresee the Wagan turning on accidentally since the button is flush.
    Winner - Wagan

    Access cover construction\design:
    Both lights have a similar removable cover to gain access to the batteries. The Wagan is round and it`s the back cover. The Smittybilt is triangular and it`s the front cover. They both require the user to remove 2 screws and gently pry up on the tabs - Wagan has 2 tabs, Smittybilt has 3. I had no problems in removing either one, and they both had a nice tight fit without being too tight. These covers have seals which are what make the unites water-proof. The Smittybilt uses a standard O-ring design found in many flashlights. It is replaceable, if you can find one of the same size. The Wagan uses a thicker integrated rubber seal that is molded right into the cover. It is not replaceable, but I doubt it will wear out any time soon.
    Winner - Tie

    Inner construction\design:
    The Wagan has a battery compartment & circuit board which is secured to the housing with 2 screws. Everything stays in place when changing the batteries. Also, the switch is on the opposite side of the circuit board, so it cannot be disturbed while changing the batteries. The Smittybilt also uses a similar circuit board but it''s just loose in the housing, as it''s held in place only by the 2 screws (& posts) which hold the access cover on. Once inside, the entire circuit board is free to come out. In fact, it will come out when trying to change the battery. The battery "compartment" is very flimsy as there are no screws holding it to the circuit board. It just presses in place around the battery, while the battery just sits between two metal contacts on the circuit board. It appears cheaply designed with little thought. Also, the switch on the Smittybilt has a 5/8" long x 1/8" diameter plastic extension which goes up through the access cover to the push button. It sits right next to the battery "compartment", which made me feel as though I needed to be very careful when trying to remove the battery. And replacing the battery is not real easy compared to the traditional battery compartment found on the Wagan. The batteries are MUCH easier to replace on the Wagan. This inner construction on the Smittybilt surprised me, given the 78% higher price.
    Winner - Wagan

    Modes:
    Both lights have pretty much the same 9 modes to choose from, however the Wagan also has an additional flashlight mode with 3 white LEDS. This is a very nice additional mode, as it can be very useful when all you need is a small flood light, perhaps for reading a book, looking at a map, or a tent light, etc.
    Winner - Wagan

    Operation:
    To access the modes on both lights you just push the button repeatedly until you get to the mode of your liking. Both units turn off by pushing and holding the power button for a few seconds. The Smittybilt will turn back on in the last mode in which it was used. The Wagan will always turn on in the 3 white LED mode which I much preferred.
    Winner - Wagan

    Magnets:
    Both units have equally strong magnets which work great. However, upon close examination I noticed that the magnet on the Smittybilt appears to be just glued in place, whereas the Wagan appears to use a magnet with a 1/16" step (5/8" diameter as measured from the outside, 11/16" diameter as measured from the inside). This step should prevent the magnet from ever coming out the back side.
    Winner - Wagan

    Water-proof\buoyancy:
    I placed both units in a pail of water and neither of them leaked during this short test. I pushed both units to the bottom of the pail and let go. Both units surfaced (floated) without any problem, but the lighter weight (5.4 oz. vs. 6.9 oz.) of the Wagan caused it to surface quicker.
    Winner - Tie

    Battery:
    The Wagan uses 3 readily available AAA batteries. The Smittybilt uses a single CR123 battery. It is my opinion that a light of this type ought to have lithium batteries inside, to withstand a wider range of temperatures. Although you can buy lithium AAA batteries, they will cost more than a single CR123 battery. This is purely subjective, but I prefer using a single CR123 battery. Having said that, there are more options with the AAA configuration (e.g. heavy duty, alkaline, lithium). If the run times listed on the packages are correct, you will get anywhere from a little more (10 hrs. vs. 9 hrs.) to a lot more (100 hrs. vs. 38 hrs.) run time with the CR123 Smittybilt, depending on the mode. However, these run times may be more evenly matched if using lithium AAA batteries in the Wagan.
    Winner - Smittybilt for me, but depends on each user.

    Additional features:
    The Wagan includes a hinged hook which will allow for hanging from a hood latch, a tent loop, a tree branch, etc. It only opens 90 degrees. Although useful, it would have been nice to see it open 180 degrees. But given that the Smittybilt doesn''t even have this feature, it''s a nice touch.
    Winner - Wagan

    Price: Winner - Wagan

    Summary:
    I can honestly say that I am not sure why the Smittybilt is sold at a higher price, given that they are both made in China, and given that I found nothing that leads me to believe it''s a better product. With the exception of having a bit more robust outer rubber plastic, it did not excel in any one category. In fact, my analysis led me to be glad I didn''t buy more of these based strictly on review ratings. I plan to buy more of the Wagan units.

    My guess is that all the positive reviews for the Smittybilt unit were not based on a comparison of these two units. Although a nice product, and worthy of a recommendation, the Smittybilt is no where near the value of the Wagan.

    I don''t intend to talk down the Smittybilt or it`s makers, nor would I say that the 4 & 5 star reviews for it are unreasonable, but this is a great example of things being relative. By itself, I probably would have given the Smittybilt 4 stars. But compared to the Wagan, I cannot give it more than 3 or 3.5 stars, while I give the Wagan 4.5 stars.

    My suggestion to the makers at Smittybilt would be to focus more design time on the entire product. As it is, it appears, upon initial analysis, that the focus has been strictly on the appearance of a sturdier built unit. It is possible that this unit can handle more abuse, I don''t know, but if it can, it is not evident upon my desktop analysis. Perhaps some day I will torture test them by driving over them. Until then, I will just see which one lasts longer under normal use.

    Notes: Both units came with batteries included. Also, the brightness of these products are pretty much identical, as they should be with ANY battery-operated device using these cheaper LED bulbs. They should all (including those not tested here) be about the same brightness, which is plenty bright for their intended purpose - to be seen.

    I wanted this product for over a year. I held off because of the reviews about the battery drainage issue that I saw on Amazon. I emailed Wagan in December of 2014 asking when they would have this issue resolved. They assured me that they had a solve, and would be implementing it into their production process in early 2015. In December of 2015, I saw they were on sale, so I picked up a set. They arrived in time, and well packaged. I LOVE the product. These things appear nearly indestructible. The orange feels like hard rubber, and the clear plastic seems very strong.

    I didn''t have any trouble opening the unit up to try it out. Some folks mentioned having difficulty here, and I didn''t seem to have any. I removed the screws, and then used the screwdriver to press up on the two tabs to force the upper and lower assemblies apart. When I did, I found a date stamp. It was marked April 2015. I wasn''t sure if this date would have the battery drain issue so I called Wagan. I talked to their rep, and explained my concern. He informed me that they didn''t know the date of the change in their process and the only way for me to ensure there was no battery drain was to try the unit, and then set it aside for a month or two and try it again? I explained that I wasn''t comfortable being the quality control for their company, and that I would need them to check. He informed me that there was nothing more they could do. I hung up disappointed in the response I got so I emailed Wagan. They agreed that I could ship the unit back to them, and they would test it. If they found that the units had the battery drain issue, then they would replace them with units that had been verified not to have the problem.

    I took them up on their offer, and shipped the units back. From there, they emailed me and confirmed receipt as well as to state they had checked my units and did not see the drain issue happening. They then shipped the units back to me.

    So, if you order these units, check you date stamp. If it is after April 2015, you''re probably in the clear. They do have a 1 year warranty, and explained that if a customer sees the issue within a year of purchase, they will replace the lights free of charge (although you''ll probably have to pay to ship the lights to them) I would suggest validating them just in case. These come with a small carry bag to store the lights in. I actually put another 9 aaa batteries along with a small screwdriving in the bag with the lights. Granted, I probably won''t need them, but since the space is there, I thought it was better to be safe than sorry.

    Again, I love the product. The service was good. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the hassle of having to return the units and then get them back weeks later. Why Wagan doesn''t know when this change was implemented into their process is beyond me, but they stood behind their sale, and I appreciate that.

    I have had this model for 4 years. I have used many different batterie brands, and stored under various conditions. The most life I get from the batteries is about 4 months, WITHOUT turning on the units at all. Called "customer service" and was told this is the average life for the batteries. The units were poorly designed with a parasitic battery draw that will not function when you need to use them. I was told to not install the batteries until I need to use the units. This is totally unacceptable. The covers have two screws holding them on, and then you have to pry ( not easy) the cover off, insert the batteries and then reassemble. I was also told there is an improved model that will last form 8-12 months, and a unit with no screws holding the cover. I asked if I could trade these in, for a discount on a newer model. I was told they will not do that. I would not recommend this light for an emergency use as you never know when it will function, and to have to assemble the units for use in an emergency situation is totally not acceptable which negates the purpose having them in the first place.

    There are a lot of emergency kits out there, none of them have what I wanted so I tried putting one myself using well reviewed items. This is one of them. Not only has a decent price but it does what it promised.

    I got the first 6, knowing that some reviews simply exaggerate. So far these are great for many reasons. They are strong, heavy duty. Tested all the light settings and they all seem to do the trick, caught your attention. I tested in different lighting situations. Of course they work better at night. They don’t smoke like a flare does and maybe the manufacture will come up with a future technology or design that works better during the day as flares does.

    The ON button is tricky at first but when you press it soft enough you will be able experience all the modes in the sequence you prefer. Accessing the battery compartment could better since you don’t want to install the batteries until you really need it. I am concern the batteries will leak acid or won’t be in good shape when I need it. I think that if you use lithium instead of the alkaline included batteries you will have a better chance to reduce to deal with the aftermath of a leaking battery.

    Opening the disk is tricky too. The first one took me a few extra seconds to figure how to do it. You basically have to pry off the cover with a flat object. I used a flat screw driver with caution as I did not want to mark or break the disk in case I had to return. The magnet on the back are strong enough to stick to your car metal parts. I have not try them under raining weather conditions. Submerge them in water is one thing but having the under constant rain could be another. No rain all year in my area of the country. This test will have to wait 

    A nice feature is the hook on the back of the disk. You can be creative and use it in many other situations. Like hanging them to show a path, signs, doors, etc.
    Overall great lights.

    I will give this disk 4 starts:

    1 Starts for affordability compare with other similar models.
    2 for doing what it said it would do.
    1 star for design and how easy is to use once batteries are installed.

    I will give the extra star if the day visibility was better.
    Was easier to open to add or replace batteries.

    Don''t bother with the cheap batteries that were included with these flares! These came with some no-name batteries pre-installed. I opened the flares again today to replace the batteries because they were two years old. They have been sitting safely in our dry cars.
    In one set, the original batteries were dead. No big deal. But in the other set, the batteries had totally leaked everywhere and corroded the entire battery holder. That set of flares is completely ruined by the corrosion. I put in new batteries, but they still don''t work. I''m sure the flares work fine with good batteries, but it''s a shame they ruined their own product by installing horrible cheap batteries.

    Pros:
    -Good magnets to stick to car body.
    -Bright lights with easy visibility.

    Cons:
    -Difficult and cumbersome to open them up to pull out strip to allow the battery to work. You have to unscrew a screw and then pry the parts apart because they are sealed so tightly. This may be good to make them water tight, but on the other hand it took some time, and at one point I was afraid that I was applying so much pressure to pry apart the halves that they might crack. Finally I was able to pry them apart. The batteries included are the cheap batteries made in China.

    I stored the flares in my car. About 6 months later I tested them, and none of the flares lit up. I changed all of them to duracell batteries thinking that the quality of the batteries were the problem. Six months later all the batteries had lost their charge.

    The only way I think this would work is if you left the strip in the flares to prevent the battery from losing power, but then to use them in an emergency you would have to break out the screw driver and painstakingly unscrew each flare and then have a flat head screw driver and take time and much effort to pry them apart and then remove the strip and then put them back together and then replace the screws on each flare. This would be a 15 minute process for all 3 flares which is not what you need to do under an emergency situation.

    I have a colleague who is a fire fighter, and he told me he relies on the standard fire flares. They don''t require batteries and they are reliable. I will get these next.

    Received product as posted and I''m pleased with the quality. I haven''t gotten a chance to use it for its intended use but tried it upon opening the package. The lights are bright and I don''t have any doubt about its effectiveness at night or in an emergency situation. The only small problem I had was determining the order of the different light modes. When I went through the different modes, it almost seemed inconsistent with the ordered list on the package. I wish it came with a proper list indicating the order of the flashing modes.

    I keep these in my SUV, ended up using them sooner than expected. The magnetic base attached to a door or fender, no risk of fire or toxic ash from burning road flares. I had been looking for these for some time. Have sued them once on a dark back country road for a tire change, much safer than road flares, no fires or problems putting them out. Ended up buying a set for my brother as well.

    Dusk till dark only.

    Not as bright as I would have liked, for daylight that is. If used during a solar eclipse or dusk/night they''re awesome. I suppose this will degrade as the headlights approach your area however everyone will know you''re there prior to getting to that point.
