    It’s great, I think, that ACR has come up with a pyrotechnic flare alternative that is more compact than the existing LED flares. But note that it meets the original USCG electronic Visual Distress Signal Device (eVDSD) standard, not the new and more distinctive RTCM standard. So far, only the Sirius C-1002 can make that claim:

    Cool product. I’m curious, what is the expected battery shelf life and what battery types are recommended? I have to think that alkaline would be the worst choice given their propensity to leak.

    How do you compare the ACR ResQ to the Sirius Electronic Flare?
