FRED
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!

FRED™ Light

 

Trusted Everywhere
We have had rave reviews regarding the FRED lights that have come 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 THANKS those individuals for their dedicated service!

Emergency Use on the Road
The FRED light was built to be a safe and effective replacement for dangerous road flares. Road flares are great for being seen, but pose a massive fire risk and are hard to extinguish after use. The FRED light remains cool to the touch and does not emit a flame that can start fires. FRED uses bright LED bulbs that have a life span of over 50,000 hours and are resistant to shock and are extremely bright. With 9 Flash modes and a 3 white LED worklight, FRED is as useful as it is versatile.

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; with a magnetic backing and a flush fitting hook, the FRED Light can be mounted or placed nearly anywhere. 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.

 

 

Emergency Use on the Water
With an extremely strong magnet, the FRED Light can hold on to most ferrous metals with ease. Use the FRED Light to mark your location, alert other boaters, or as a floating marker. The uses for FRED are limitless!*

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!

FRED™ Light

IP55 Rated & Shatterproof
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 floats too! 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 non-slip grip.

FRED™ Light

 

The Important Stuff
FRED is equipped with 15 LEDs (12 Red, 3 White), has a full 360 degree visibility, can be seen up to a mile radius, and offers 9 Red LED Light modes with a 3 LED worklight mode too. A single On/Off/Mode button makes using the FRED simple without any complicated steps. Just press the button once to turn the FRED Light on and halfway depress the button to toggle between the 9 lighting modes. To turn the FRED Light off, just fully depress the button at any time. The 3 white LED worklight is perfect for up-close work and can help act as an under the hood light. With a shatterproof load capacity of up to 500kg, FRED is a tough light that almost anyone can use.

FRED™ Light is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Light but,,,,, I bought the FRED for my wife several years ago and what a great product ! But the FRED needs updating, theres no color option. The wife is a rural postal carrier she uses the FRED on the roof front and rear as a warning/caution light because she makes frequent stops. But some drivers think she is an emergency vehicle and pull over creating some irritated motorist. A FRED with a caution yellow LEDs would be a fantastic update of a very useful warning device. Amber LED light could be use be construction crews, postal workers, farm tractors, snow removal crews and many many many others were RED leds are not practical. Fred still a great light regardless Very happy, Kixster

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great customer service Purchased four FRED lights at least a year ago because I liked the concept and features. Had frustration with lights draining batteries when not in use and contacted Wagan here. They explained the issue with a certain batch of lights and sent four replacements immediately. The new ones have an improved activation button and I'm told there are no battery drain issues. Thanks again Justin for the fast service.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from does not work Bought FRED as a gift for my father-in-law. Installed batteries, pressed the power button and the three white LED's came on. Pressed power again, the perimeter lights quickly flashed red and the unit turned off. Unfortunately that's all it will do. Will not cycle through any light options; just turns on the 3 white lights on the front and then turns them off again.

Why don't you make the manual easier to find on your website? WHY? Because the one that came with the one I had in store had BLANK pages, the most useful on how to open was not there. Plus someone who was going to buy one might want to look at it.
