On average, lightning strikes kill 62 people each year in the US. You’ll probably never be struck, but if you work on a job site that’s prone to strikes, you might want a little insurance. The pager-sized StrikeAlert warns of lightning strikes within 40 miles, giving you advanced warning and extra time to get to cover.

StrikeAlert measures about 4″ x 3″ and includes a clip for putting it on your belt or bag. It will run for approximately 100 hours on two AAA batteries. When it detects a lightning strike, it sounds an alarm, and a blinking LED shows how far away the strike was. It’ll even tell you if the strikes are getting closer or farther away, with a tap of the power button.

Street pricing is about $60.
