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.

Light And Motion Laser 600 Dive Light Review

Written by Dive Gear Reviews Editor. Comments Off on Light And Motion Laser 600 Dive Light Review Posted in: Dive Lights, Over $500

If you do a lot of diving in murky water, or better still a lot of night diving in murky water, the Light and Motion Laser 600 is for you. The standard LED three-cell lamp combines with a powerful lens to create a bright, narrow 8-degree beam of 600 lumens on the maximum power setting. Lower power settings allow the diver to dial down to 300 and 150 lumens.

That maximum power setting gives you the “600” part of the name, but what separates this (admittedly expensive) dive light from the pack is the “laser” part. In the middle of the lamp cells is a green diode laser, which can be used with or without the lamp. The laser gives a diver pointing and signalling options beyond simply pointing the dive light and/or flashing it.

The battery is a 12-volt lithium-ion unit, rated to provide two hours of burn time in high mode, four hours in medium, and eight hours on low.

This is a pistol-grip unit, with operating switch located on the top. It comes with a 24-month warranty and a D-ring attachment kit, and is rated for a maximum depth of 100 m (330 feet).

Price: $700
