Personal Locator Beacons (PLB) are very much like EPIRBs and operate in the same manner, but should be considered an additional safety item and not a replacement for an EPIRB. An ideal device for back country hiking where mobile reception is limited or for wearing with a life jacket for use if the wearer is separated from their vessel.

PLBs are a much smaller devices than EPIRBs and, as a result have a shorter battery life.
