  • Offering 300 lumens and depth rated to 500 feet
  • Anodized aluminum body - optical quality glass lens
  • Twist ON/OFF at the head w/ double O-ring seal
  • Includes Li-ion 14500 3.7V battery & charger
  • Very compact size - also accepts AA alkaline battery

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.

  1. Another great DGX product

    By Alfred G.

    on 14 August, 2019

    My wife recently mentioned that her dive light ( a swoopy stylish model from a company best known for camera housings) was getting dim so I checked and replaced the batteries, after doing so I compared it to my DGX 600. Unlike my wife I rarely use the my light, always stashed in my BC pocket, I've had it now about 2 years and do not recall charging the battery since purchase. The DGX 600 in that condition made the stylish light with fresh batteries seem like a candle compared to an aircraft searchlight.
    The 600 is a little more bulky and I knew that would not appeal to my wife so ordered the DGX 300 mini light for her to try. On arrival I was surprised at how small it is compared to the 600 and actually smaller than her stylish light, by the way that light costs $100 compared to $30 for the DGX 300, the maker rates it at 350 lumens, yeah right.
    Light output of the 300 actually seemed greater than my 600 so I figured it might be time to charge the battery in that one. After fully charging both lights I realized the difference is really the beam angle, the 300 beam is broader, the 600 more focused. I took some pictures comparing output of the 3 lights then realized I could not post them here. When taking pictures in a dark room of the stylish light output the camera kept telling me to raise the flash, that did not happen with either DGX light, the difference in output is huge! I have not had time to compare burn time so far but will post an update later if possible, I now plan to order a second DGX 300 for my BC and will keep the 600 for night dives, the small light is more than adequate for checking out a dark reef ledge.
