Offering 600 lumens and depth rated below 600 feet, the DGX 600 TWIST 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. Twist the light head portion for ON/OFF activation with a triple O-ring seal. 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 { 656 ft | 200 m }. The switch design is TWIST 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 { 5.3 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 { 8.4 oz | 238 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 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 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. You might also benefit from reading How to Use a New Twist-On Handheld Dive Light.

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 ends or a sealed with a clear (not blue) plastic shrink wrap, 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.

    Great Handheld Light

    I've been using this light for about 8 months now. I use it with DGX's soft handmount and I love it. With this being a twist on/off, I do need to slide it out of the mount a bit to get a good grip to twist it. But that has not presented any problems for me. And I have worn gloves for most dives with this light, as I do a lot of colder water quarry diving close to home. This light has served well in low visibility as well as for night diving. It is also a good light for travel as it can fit in a BC pocket to be pulled out if you just want to get a better look at something.

    Awesome light at an unbelievable price.

    I have been using these for several years for scuba diving and night kayaking. I own 7. Never take less than 4 to a dive site (to share), and always take 2 into the water (caverns and springs). None have ever failed on land or underwater. Getting two 50 minute dives from one charge is easy - no loss of power. I can't believe DGX can sell such a great light at such a low price. Very happy with them.

    Tested it one time during a 2,5h diving inside Spiegel Grove, in Key Largo and it was just great. Bright light, durable and reliable. Great acquisition!

    Awesome Light

    Awesome Light. I have 2 of these. Great run time, very bright and easy to recharge. I tried the DGX Push but prefer the DGX 600. The DGX push is a great design but too easy to accidentally turn on. The twist on/off of the DGX 600 easy to manage and ensures positive control of on/off so you don't waste your battery. Great lights!

  • The DGX 800 uses the same light head as the DGX 600, but a longer body incorporating two batteries means the increased power of the DGX 800 is 30% brighter with 50% longer burn time.

Various LED dive light suppliers use different methods of determining light output, plus expressing them in different forms of measurement. What matters is the visible light from the LED that bounces off the reflector and passes through the lens. The quality of the reflector and lens, as well as the actual amount of power delivered by the battery have a major affect on the amount of light that reaches the target. Dive lights would be better described by the system lumens (sometimes called out-the-front or OTF lumens), which is the amount of visible light emitted by the entire system of battery, bulb, reflector and lens. Describing any LED dive light in terms of the radiant lumens specification of the entire light output for a raw LED module (including IR and UV wavelengths we can't see) at maximum power under laboratory conditions can be very misleading. Unfortunately we have to mention the radiant lumens value because most other dive light suppliers use only the bigger number to inflate their descriptions.
