Welcome to Dive Gear Reviews, a comprehensive guide to scuba diving equipment. Scuba diving is an expensive pursuit, so looking up reviews for a particular article of equipment is a wise precaution before investing any hard-earned money in it. However, consumer reviews may or may not be written by an experienced diver, and magazine reviews could be suspect due to the advertising ties of the publication in question. Dive Gear Reviews provides cross-referenced reviews assembled by an expert, making it possible to see at a glance what multiple sources said about a particular piece of scuba equipment. If one magazine loved a scuba regulator or a dive computer, but the consumers hated it, that information will be found here.

Scubapro Fuego Dive Light Review

Written by Dive Gear Reviews Editor. Comments Off on Scubapro Fuego Dive Light Review Posted in: Below $100, Dive Lights

Scubapro’s Fuego is a compact dive light at 6.5 inches long, roughly 3 inches wide and weighing in at 15 ounces. An underwater flashlight, the Fuego uses a box-like body tube with rubberized grips, making it handy and easy to keep a hold of in slippery conditions. Light comes from a 5-watt LED bulb, powered by four C-batteries. Scubapro did not provide an Lumen rating for the LED bulb used in the Fuego, but most bulbs of that type produce between 160 and 180 Lumens worth of light. The power supply is sufficient to produce four hours of light at maximum power, and then continues at a diminished output for roughly 20 more hours. The Fuego is a fine back-up dive light for any diver, and a sound primary for divers need only occasional use of a dive light. However, divers who are fond of murky water, caves, shipwrecks, night dives and other dark conditions will find the Scubapro Fuego underpowered for use as their primary light source.
