Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. It’s a flashlight designed for safety on campus…and more. The D. A.D. 2 is a flashlight that includes a Bluetooth connection to your phone that can quickly send alerts to loved ones if you’re in danger…it can also defend with military grade pepper spray. TigerLight CEO Michael Teig…says it sends email and text messages that give your location using the phone’s GPS…and also sends an alert to other people …
“And anybody who has the app… even if they’re not in your app contacts…within a one mile radius…will get the alert. So basically it’s a way to silently call for help and be heard by those in the best position to help you.”
Using the pepper spray will also trigger the alert messaging. The Dad…in DAD 2…by the way…stands for Defense Alert Device. It sells for about 130 dollars. There’s more info at TigerLight.net.
