4 of 5 130dB? I Don't think so... September 23, 2021
Reviewer: Douglas Stone from L SHERWOOD, MO United States  
I ordered and received my NWE30 light/whistle promptly. It operates as described but I question whether the whistle could be heard by someone operating a personal watercraft. The whistle's sound output most certainly isn't as loud as some rock concerts I've attended or jet aircraft I've worked on.

2 of 5 More is needed September 3, 2021
Reviewer: Frank LoCicero from NYC  
I can't argue with a $20 device that screeches and flashes a beacon but I want more. I don't have much use for this.

I'd like to see this tech turned into an lipstick style emergency flashlight / lantern siren with a few constant  light levels plus a strobe & SOS plus a few levels of red light incl strobe & SOS with a built in or attached light diffuser. Powered by a standard, replaceable 18650 and / or a 21700 battery.

Reviewer: Mohammed Bait Said from Oman  
Excellent product, but I think it needs more practical features Like strobe mode, red beacon with strobe mode.

2 of 5 Not loud enough May 20, 2021
Reviewer: don  
The buzzer is supposed to 120 dB. This is the second one I ordered and they were both around 85dB. Can't hear it 20 yds. away in my yard.
