Questions & Answers
Questions & Answers
Does this device require an annual subscription? Steven Lack

No, a PLB does not require an annual subscription. You register the product and provide all details requested and it will remain active for the length of the battery life.

Is it a single use item? ie Does it need to be replaced if ever used? George Rogers

The PLB1 can be reset after use. There are various approved service agents that can reset the unit and replace the battery for a fee. 


Hi Just wondering if these have a new battery date code on them (for the full 7yrs) or are they sold as is from stock so may not have a full 7yrs life?Thanks Chris Chris

Our current stock has a battery expiry date of DEC 2026. (accurate as of 3/10/19).


Is this PLB1 automatically registered for the UK or do I need to do anything to register it.Thanks Robert Geere

You will need to register the PLB. More information can be found here...


What is the cost to replace the battery on a RescueMe PLB1 please? Paul Bonnett
You can replace the battery, but it is not something we offer. You would need to contact Ocean Safety, who supply these, to us to see if they can do this for you. 11/06/20
Can I use one PLB for hiking and kayaking or would I need to buy a separate one for each activity? Rachel
This can be used for both activities, no need for a separate unit. 9.11.2020
Hi thinking of getting one for my son. He’s learning to sail fast wet cats and often ends in the water are these ok for that type of sailing? Toby

Thank you for your enquiry. These are an excellent safety device and they are fully waterproof, can be carried on a lifejacket and are ideal for wet sports. You should note however that when activated they send a full distress alert via GPS satellites and make the coastguard immediately aware of your position. This may be what you want, but it would be worth considering a personal AIS locator as an alternative. This system alerts vessels equipped with an AIS receiver in the vicinity of your position and that you require assistance. This does not set off a full-scale coastguard response and is used where there are plenty of vessels around who would respond. I hope this is helpful. 07/04/21
