Offering 600 lumens and depth rated below 600 feet, the DGX 600 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; 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.

The DGX 600 also includes a FREE lithium-ion 18650 protected 3.7V battery and FREE 110/220V 50/60Hz mains charger with US flat blade on the charger (EU round mains plug adapter optional).

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.

  1. Great Light

    By Glenn G.

    The DGX 600 TWIST is a great light, I have two of them. Bright enough for recreational diving in Puget Sound's dark waters, lite-weight and easy to pack. I also own the DGX 800, which is slightly brighter and uses two batteries, but I actually recommend the DGX 600 instead. The difference in brightness between the 600 and 800 is not very noticeable, and the failure modes are also different. When batteries get low, the DGX 600 starts to dim, but you probably won't even notice it on an hour-long dive and fully-charged battery. The DGX 800, on the other hand, demands a minimum voltage level or it starts to cut out; when one or both batteries get low or old, the 800 has a stroboscopic failure mode until it goes out entirely -- a problem I haven't seen with the DGX 600. The DGX 600 is really a nifty little light.

    I’ve been buying gear from DGX for years. They have quality products and excellent customer service. They stand by their products and have super fast shipping. Lastly, they have all the unique technical stuff the everyday scuba dealers don’t have.

  5. Great!

    By Kelly M.

    A sturdy, solid, and very bright light! The lanyard and rechargeable battery are convenient, and the light itself feels very well made. I expect it will last a long time. I have seen a few reviews claiming the light does not turn on and off, and that the twisting mechanism is stuck or locked. I thought mine was faulty as well until I realized you turn the light on and off by twisting in the same location (the middle of the light) where you place the battery, not at the top near the bulb, as I was accustomed to with other lights. Once I realized the tiny twist necessary to turn the light off would not flood the battery compartment, I was very satisfied with the product.

Compare the DGX 300 - 600 - 800 lights

DGX 600/800
  • Triple O-ring Seal
  • { 656 ft | 200 m } Depth Rating
  • ON/OFF Twist Head Portion
  • Rechargeable batteries only
  • Use as Primary light, backup or helmet mount
  • Cool white 6500°K light in a tight 8° beam
DGX 300
  • Double O-ring Seal
  • { 492 ft | 150 m } Depth Rating
  • ON/OFF Twist Head Portion
  • Uses Rechargeable OR Alkaline batteries
  • Use as backup or helmet mount
  • Cool white 6500°K light in an 18° beam
  • The DGX 300 Mini Light features a true out-the-front 300 system lumens (600+ raw LED lumens) with 30 minute burn time using a rechargeable 14500 battery. Using a quality AA size disposable alkaline battery you will get about double the burn time with half the lumens.
  • The DGX 600 Handheld Light features a true out-the-front 600 system lumens (1100+ raw LED lumens) with 60 minute burn time using a rechargeable 18650 battery.
  • The DGX 800 Handheld Light features a true out-the-front 800 system lumens (1100+ raw LED lumens) with 90 minute burn time using two rechargeable 18650 batteries.
  • 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.

The DGX 600 is available in your choice of PUSH or TWIST style activation. The choice between twist-on or push-on styles is mostly a matter of personal preference. If you are mounting the light, we recommend the PUSH button style. If the light is being carried as a handheld backup to a primary, we recommend the TWIST on style.

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.
