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.

Oceanic Arc LED Dive Light Review

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

The Oceanic Arc LED is a compact dive light, easily stowed in a BCD pocket and ideally suited for use as a back-up light, but powerful enough to serve as a primary for occasional night divers. The Arc uses a 6 watt LED bulb powered by three AA batteries, producing a 300 lumen beam with an eight-hour burn time. The Arc is rated for 350 feet of water (106 m) and lightweight, weighing only 7 oz (220 grams) without batteries.

While there are smaller dive lights around, the Oceanic Arc LED presents a good balance between light output, size, and cost. For cave divers, wreck divers and other people who spend a lot of time in dark places, the Arc is more powerful than the typical pocket light and robust enough to go deep. For recreational divers, the power output is high enough to easily serve as a general purpose primary dive light, and the Arc is compact and light enough for easy travel.

The Oceanic Arc LED comes in black, navy blue and yellow. Batteries and a lanyard are included.

Average Price: $75
