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.

Pelican Nemo 1960 LED Dive Light Review

Written by Dive Gear Reviews Editor. Comments Off on Pelican Nemo 1960 LED Dive Light Review Posted in: Below $100, Dive Lights

Pelican’s Nemo 1960 LED packs a lot of capability into a very small package. It’s compact enough to fit into even a small BC pocket, while the ABS resin housing is depth rated to 500 feet (152 m). Those two features make this a solid choice as a secondary or tertiary light for tec and cave divers. Past that, the Nemo 1960 is a fairly simple flashlight. Settings consist of on and off, and the LED bulb develops 24 lumens of light in a 10-inch beam, drawing power from a pair of AAA batteries. The burn time for this Pelican underwater flashlight is three hours. The best part is the exceptionally low price, so low that the Pelican Nemo 1960 LED also appears in the pages of hiking magazines and websites as a waterproof hiker’s and camper’s flashlight. Any recreational diver who wants a back-up dive light just for the sake of having one, but doesn’t want to invest a lot of money into an item they probably won’t need should take a good, long look the Pelican Nemo 1960 LED. The same applies for serious tec and cave divers who need a back-up for their back-up.

Average Price: $30, but can sometimes be had for less than $25.
