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.

IST T-120 LED Dive Light Review

Written by Dive Gear Reviews Editor. Comments Off on IST T-120 LED Dive Light Review Posted in: Between $101-$250, Dive Lights

While it might have a high price tag, the IST T-120 is a compact, high performance little marvel of a dive light. Less than six inches (15 cm) long and weighing only 0.6 lbs (277 g), this dive light is small. Even women divers will find the light small, light, and handy.

However, that size does not compromise the light’s performance. The 10-watt LED bulb produces 750 lumens of white light, more than enough for general purpose recreational use. Machined from a single block of marine-grade aluminum and sporting double o-ring seals, the T-120 is as tough as it is small, and rated for 328 feet (100 m). This makes it not just a compact-but-fully functional choice for recreational divers, but a high-powered back-up light for tec divers as well. Rounding out the pretty picture is the 70 minutes of burn time off of a rechargeable lithium-ion battery.

The one drawback is the price tag. For recreational divers in particular, who may or may not care about reducing size and weight so much, something bigger, cheaper and just as powerful might prove a better choice. However, if you need a durable dive light that produces a ton of light and fits easily in your pocket, the T-120 deserves serious consideration.

Average Price: $250
