Offering 600 lumens and depth rated below 300 feet, the DGX 600 BUTTON Handheld Light features a true out-the-front 600 system lumens (1100+ raw LED lumens) of cool white 6500°K light in a tight 8° beam.

This BUTTON version is multi-function and offers a HIGH and LOW power and a safety STROBE setting. Push the BUTTON on the light head portion for HIGH - LOW output activation with a triple O-ring seal. Push and HOLD down the button for a full second when in either light mode for the STROBE activation. Once the strobe is activated then another push will revert back to normal light function. The area around the button feature is illuminated and will give an approximate battery life remaining notification with color changes (Green is charged while or Red means battery life is nearly diminished).

Using the supplied lithium-ion 18650 rechargeable battery, this compact light has a burn time of about 60 minutes . According to CREE, the DGX 600 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. Although no substitute for a canister light, we are not exaggerating when we say this handheld light throws more punch than many of the previous generation of canister primary lights in the water today. Considering the Dive Gear Express price, durability and light output the DGX 600 represents an excellent value!

Incorporating an optical quality glass lens with a triple o-ring seal between the head and body, the light is IP68 rated to { 328 ft | 100 m }. The switch design is Push BUTTON ON/OFF at the head(hence the name); unscrew the head completely from the body to load the battery. We designed this light with very tight tolerances to ensure the extreme depth rating so you will notice the activation does take effort. 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 600 can also be used as a dry flashlight on the surface. Use the TTI-1004 Generic Mounting Bracket (Small) for helmet mounting this light. The anodized aircraft aluminum body measures { 5.5 x 1.6 x 1.4 in | 135 x 40 x 35 mm } (length x head diameter x tube diameter) with a dry weight of { 8.8 oz | 249 gm } including the battery.

In The Box -- The DGX light head and triple O-ring seal body with lanyard, plus a set of three spare O-rings. The DGX 600 BUTTON also includes a lithium-ion 18650 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, while looking away from the light head itself, insert the battery in to the body, negative end first such that the positive end will be pointing toward the light head. While looking away from the light head simply hold the head and screw the body clockwise back together all the way until it stops. With the BUTTON style the light will activate as soon as the head is completely screwed on and the battery makes contact. This ensures your light is working properly. To turn off (or back on) simply press the BUTTON. One press will offer the HIGH power setting, a second press of the button will offer the LOW setting while a press and HOLD in either HIGH or LOW mode will activate the emergency STROBE feature.

Maintain the O-rings - If the O-rings look completely 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 from wear, 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 18650 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 2 to 3 hours but can be as long as 4 to 6 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 18650 batteries grossly over state their power rating claims.
