The biggest advantage of the electronic flares is that often when something bad happens, there's precipitation involved... When it rains it pours as they say and having old fashioned sparklin flares doesn't cut it in the rain, when your already miserable and stranded...

It's always a challenge to wait at a bus stop in the dark and have a bus blow by because it did not see you. In Seattle, most of the major stops have a post with a light that flashes for 60 seconds or so, after you push it, to let the driver know you're in the shelter, but by the time you sit down, you need to go and re-activate the light.
If these have a good enough magnet, they would be perfect to use at any bus stop, so you can have a seat while you wait, letting the light catch the driver's eye.
As for the "quality" I'm not expecting much, but that's why I am going for 3x2.
I'm so glad I'm not the only one that sees these sort of things as a bus rider's dream item in winter!
I'm just hanging out, really.

I'm in for a few sets, I plan on keeping the batteries out and next to the light with a rubber band or something. I'm worried about the batteries leaking as mentioned above. I have a set of these in a car.
more expensive but good quality.
