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.

UK Super Q eLED Dive Light Review

Written by Dive Gear Reviews Editor. Comments Off on UK Super Q eLED Dive Light Review Posted in: Between $101-$250, Dive Lights


The small underwater flashlights from Underwater Kinetics (UK) have been setting a high standard in the diving industry since the early 1970s, and the Super Q eLED is no exception. When Scuba Diving tested it as a secondary dive light, they described it as the smallest, lightest, brightest underwater flashlight tested that year. The Super Q eLED produces a tight 90-lumen beam from an LED bulb, powered by a lithium ion battery. The latter means you can recharge the flashlight simply by plugging it into a wall socket or even your computer, and the battery will last through several years of regular use. The power supply is good for four hours. The dive light is also compact, weighing in at 3 1/2 ounces and only about 4 1/2 inches long. With a depth rating of 500 feet (152 m), the UK Super Q eLED dive light is ideally suited as a tec diver’s back-up. For recreational divers who need a dive light for the odd grotto, tunnel or night dive, however, the Super Q eLED is a bit too underpowered to serve as a primary dive light.
