One of the most important features of the Must Have MOB1 (Man Overboard) AIS Beacon is the fact that it transmits information about the location of the person in the water via AIS (Automatic Identification System) technology.

Another great feature of the Must Have MOB1 (Man Overboard) AIS Beacon is the fact that it is completely waterproof and can withstand immersion in water for up to 24 hours.

This is a particularly important feature if you live or work in an area with unpredictable weather conditions or if your favourite hobby requires you to be around water a lot.
The device also comes with a built-in flashing light which further increases the visibility of the person in the water to those in the area. This is an additional safety feature which is particularly valuable for those who find themselves in difficult situations at night or in low light conditions. This makes the Must Have MOB1 (Man Overboard) AIS Beacon a great choice for sailors, boaters, kayakers, and anyone else who spends a lot of time on or near the water.
Finally, one of the best things about the Must Have MOB1 (Man Overboard) AIS Beacon is the included Floating Lifeline Bracelet in bright orange. This bracelet easily attaches to the device and will float on the surface of the water, making it easy for rescuers to grab onto and help pull the person in the water to safety. This is a great additional safety feature that adds an extra layer of protection and peace of mind.
In conclusion, the Must Have MOB1 (Man Overboard) AIS Beacon is an incredibly valuable device that is essential for anyone that spends time on or near the water.
