This Bigblue BB-3x5W LED Dive Light (Magenta) is a powerful LED dive light that performs even in the most demanding dive environments. Three 5W LED bulbs provide 500 lumens of light. There is a Hi-Lo power setting allowing you to choose between 100% or 70% light output, thus extending burn time. The light can be powered with 8 AA or C batteries; both Alkaline and NiMH will work. With AAs the light has a burn time of up to 12 hours, and with C batteries up to 20 hours.
You can use the light to look under ledges and to restore natural color underwater, and use it as a primarily light on night dives. The BB-3x5W has a color temperature of 6500K, and a beam angle of 60°. The Rotary Magnetic Switch not only makes it easy for you to switch between the Hi-Lo output settings, it is insulated from all internal parts, eliminating the risk of flooding. Other safety features includes the thermal protection system, that prevents the light from overheating by cutting off power in case of prolonged use on land, or exposure to temperatures above 158°F (70°C). As soon as the light cools off, the power comes back on. There is also a safety lock that prevents the light from being accidentally switched on when in you your gear bag.
