A strobe or flashlight set on flashing mode is a great way to be seen and found.
I have one the size of a bottle cap for evening walks.

Reminds me of a reddit r/flashlight post a month ago.
Uber Eats driver couldn't find my address. Had to light the beacon.



Enthusiast flashlights are getting some impressive throw distances in a single cell flashlights these days. Be interesting to see if the tech moves into usable emergency beacon products.
