Offering 300 lumens and depth rated to 492 feet, the DGX 300 Mini Light features a true out-the-front 300 system lumens (600+ raw LED lumens) of cool white 6500°K light in a 18° beam. Twist the light head portion for ON/OFF activation with a triple O-ring seal. Using the supplied lithium-ion AA sized 14500 rechargeable battery, this compact light has a burn time of about 30 minutes at full power  . The light will then start to fade but will continue to burn until the battery is depleted and ready to be charged again. This light will also accept a standard AA Alkaline battery. Using a standard AA Alkaline battery(not included) you will get longer burn times with reduced lumen output (about 125 lumens). According to CREE, the DGX 300 has one of the highest performing single-die LEDs that is commercially available, the XLamp XM-L2 U2 LED, and is single-mode driven to prioritize light output over burn time.

Incorporating an optical quality glass lens with a double o-ring seal between the head and body, the light is IP68 rated to {492 ft | 150 m}. The switch design is twist ON/OFF at the head; unscrew the head completely from the body to load the battery. The tail has a sturdy rear tie-point for a bolt snap or use the included lanyard. The light has an electronic circuit to maintain constant light output as long as possible and provides reverse polarity & over temperature protection; meaning the DGX 300 can also be used as a dry flashlight on the surface. The anodized aircraft aluminum body measures {3.6 x 0.8 x 0.7 in | 93 x 21 x 19 mm} (length x head diameter x tube diameter) with a dry weight of {2.5 oz | 71 gm} including the battery. Use the TTI-1004 Generic Mounting Bracket (Small) for helmet mounting this light.

In The Box -- The DGX light head and dual O-ring seal body with lanyard, plus a set of two spare O-rings The DGX 300 also includes a lithium-ion 14500 protected 3.7V battery and 110/220V 50/60Hz mains charger with US flat blade on the charger - an EU round mains plug adapter is available separately.

There isn't a manual, however there is not much to know. To load battery, unscrew the head from the body until the two pieces separate and then insert the battery in to the body, negative end first such that the positive end will be pointing toward the light head. Hold the head and screw the body clockwise back together all the way until it stops. To turn off, twist the body counterclockwise until the light goes off then continue to twist the body one half revolution. Once assembled, the twist-on light should require a maximum of about one full revolution to turn on or turn off. If the O-rings look dry, leave them in place but smear a very small amount of silicone lubricant on the part of the O-ring surface you can see. If the O-rings start looking flat, then replace them with the included spares. Do not store the light for extended periods with the battery remaining inside the body.

The DGX light includes a generic battery and charger, but any good quality protected-type 14500 battery and charger is suitable. They all pretty much work the same way and are interchangeable. Some batteries ship with a small adhesive cover on the end, if so remove and discard. Place the battery in the charger, matching the positive and negative indications on the sides of the battery to the same indications on the charger, and then plug in the charger. If the battery is properly positioned in the charger, a red light will illuminate and then some time later change color to green when done. Charging time varies considerably depending on the pre-existing charge level of the battery, typically 1 to 2 hours but can be as long as 4 hours for a depleted battery, and it's normal for batteries to get warm while charging. Best practice is never leave charging unattended then once the light turns green, unplug the charger and remove the battery.

Burn times with the supplied battery are a conservative estimate for technical diving use. Burn times can vary widely because we observe that most brands of lithium-ion 14500 batteries grossly over state their power rating claims.

    Great value and quality; beam too diffuse

    By

    on

    Good quality and great value (esp since it already includes the batt/charger). Just be careful not to unscrew too much when turning it off (or else it will flood). Just turn till the light cuts off and stop.

    FYI, this is NOT a good spotting light as the beam is very diffuse. It is best used as either a primary night light (bright and diffuse enough, and adequate burn time) or as a backup light. I would have given it 5 stars had the beam been more narrow.

    Small and handy

    By

    on

    Light is small and quite handy as backup-of-the-backup light.
    Burn time might be an issue, as well as the fact that medium snap is almost bigger than this light so it's a bit awkward to attach ;) Light is too small and can be lost / misplaced without some for of attachment, but I guess that what you should be prepared for when ordering "mini light" ;)
    I also think it would be a pretty good working light, when attached to a helmet, but I don't use it as such, so can't share first hand experiences.

    DGX 300 Light Kit

    By

    on

    Great light, a bit difficult to turn on so I added a piece of rubber hose to the bottom third of the light so I could grip it better to turn it on. Works fine. This is the second one in six months. Left the first one on a dive boat and some one else apparently needed it more than I did.

    DGX 300 Flashlight

    By

    on

    Bought 2 of these. Very bright and very small light. Every bit of 300 lumens and more. Ran a burn test and both went for 50 minutes without loosing brightness, 65 minutes total. Definitely enough time for a night dive. Batteries charge in about an hour. Can't wait to get them in the water in Cozumel next month! Check your o rings though. I bought 2 lights and 2 of the o rings were defective. Dive gear express didn't even blink and dropped 2 more in the mail that day. Thanks Dive Gear Express for amazing customer service!!!
