Alkaline or Lithium Batteries for Turbo Road Flares?
Rechargeable Batteries are growing in popularity, but are they worth the investment? On the surface they seem sensible, but the hidden drawbacks make them inferior to alkaline and lithium batteries.
Self-discharge much faster than alkaline
Have a poor shelf life
Must be completely drained before being recharged
Often do not hold a charge effectively
Are not necessarily fully powered despite 16 hours of charging
Thus do not live up to the manufacturer’s claims
Turbo Road Flares
"It takes a smashing and keep on flashing!"
Turbo Road Flares are made out of a polycarbonate blend similar to Lexan, the material used to manufacture bullet proof glass. Polycarbonate is one of the best plastic materials that are available in the world today. It is durable, malleable, lightweight and is shatter proof. The bonds in the molecules are very strong. Polycarbonate gets its strength from being flexible, so that it gives a little when impacted.
The Turbo Road Flare was put through plenty of testing to prove its strength and durability. It was dropped off the bed of a truck, tossed while walking, kicked around, run over at slow and high speeds, and left with a truck parked on it. After each test it kept on flashing. Thus our motto “It takes a smashing and keeps on flashing!”

More About Us At TRF Industries
TRF Industries is the motivating force behind Turbo Road Flares. Founded by Gary & Pat Goodwin, and currently classified as a Woman Owned Business.
In 2013 the Goodwin’s sold an environmental laboratory, Pat-Chem Laboratories located in Southern California, and relocated to Las Vegas Nevada. Soon after he began volunteering for the local police department and found himself involved with a volunteer traffic team. While working late at night he found himself, and other team members, sometimes using more than 100 incendiary flares during an event. The flares burn at nearly 2000 degrees leaving hazardous waste behind and exhausting toxic fumes into the air. In Las Vegas most waste washes off the roadway and into Lake Mead. In other parts of the country they wash into lakes and the ocean. He thought there must be a better way.
Gary was given electronic road flares to use at night. What he realized is that they had LED’s used for the light output. The particular ones he was given used a single rotating pattern, with one color. They did give off light, but not enough to be comparable to incendiary flares. He then searched for other makes and models of electronic road flares.
All had the same problems. While they have limited application to private parties, they certainly were not made for industry or for first responders. They fell short for being suitable for traffic control situations. They were too small, not bright enough, and did not offer much versatility.
It was at that point that the idea of the Turbo Road Flare was born. He wanted to design a product that had several color options, several patterns, and most of all, big and bright enough to protect users by lighting up the roadway.
The base and lens were engineered in Las Vegas Nevada. The electronics in Turbo Road Flares were engineered in Southern California. The lens and base are made in Utah, and the final product assembled in Las Vegas Nevada. Turbo Road Flares are designed to deploy three ways. With a hook that attaches to the body that can be hung on a cone or barricade, and a stand that allows them to stand on their own and face traffic. The Turbo Road Flare can also be deployed flat on the ground.
