I believe the electronic flares are only for night use. You still need a day signal.

It seems your right.  Looks like I have to get a flag.  I got the electronic thing last year because I was piling up old flares and they were getting expensive.

I accumalated half of a  bushel of old flares. One Fourth of July I tried to fire some off. A lot of older flares the twist off igniter would not open even with vise grips. Besides being a hazardous condition, be aware that the old flares are unusable.
