Haven't had to use it so thats...great?

I can only really review the shipping as I never had a need to activate this. The shipping was quick.

I do feel a lot more relaxed hiking with a PLB and this is so small and easy to use and relatively cheap that I thought it was worth it. I was looking at the Spot and was going to go with that until I saw the ongoing costs involved with it. This (hopefully) does what I need.

Don’t know if it works and, fingers crossed, I will not need to find out. However, perfect size and service from Snowys impeccable.

Tiny size

Seriously tiny size. Haven't had to use it, but it is a very simple design, I feel confident I could easily activate if needed. Came with a hard zip pouch with belt loop and lanyard. Accessories (ie. armband) available to help you wear it where you can quickly reach it. Really pleased with this bit of safety kit.

Battery replacement1 answer

When the battery needs to be replaced can you do it your self? If the alarm is set off do you then need to replace the battery? What price are replacement batteries?

- Tocumwal(3 months ago)

G'day Henery,

The KTI Safety Alert PLB is fitted with special lithium batteries and it is not possible to replace batteries in the field or at home.

Battery replacement and servicing of the beacon is carried out by the manufacturer (Kinetic Technology International Pty. Ltd) or an agent delegated by them. However, unless the beacon has been activated, battery replacement should only occur at ten-yearly intervals.

Once activated, any PLB battery must be replaced.

We don't sell replacement batteries, as this needs to go through Kinetic Technology International Pty. Ltd so I'm not sure about the exact pricing. This is to ensure everything is done correctly so that the PLB performs when you need it to.

Will this work in New Zealand . If so does it need altering,

- Townsville(5 months ago)

G'day Graeme,

The KTI PLB uses the COSPAS-SARSAT satellite network which is an international search and rescue system and the unit is approved to be used in New Zealand. You will, however, need to register the device with New Zealand authorities which can be done here.
