DGX 800 Handheld Light
DGX 800 Handheld Light - Complete Kit DGX 800 Handheld Light
  • Offering 800 lumens and depth rated below 600 feet
  • Anodized aluminum body - quality glass lens
  • Twist ON/OFF at the head - burn time 90 minutes
  • Body is {8 x 1.6 x 1.4 in} - weight {12.5 oz} w/ battery
  • Includes (2) lithium-ion 18650 batteries and charger

Similar to our extremely popular single battery DGX 600, but with a longer body incorporating two batteries, the 30% brighter DGX 800 Handheld Light features a true out-the-front 800 system lumens of cool white 6500°K light in a tight 8° beam with 50% more burn time. Twist the light head portion for ON/OFF activation with a triple O-ring seal. Using the two (2) supplied lithium-ion 18650 rechargeable batteries, this compact light has a burn time of about 90 minutes . According to CREE, the DGX 800 has one of the highest performing single-die LEDs that is commercially available, the XLamp XM-L2 U2 LED, offering 1100+ raw lumens 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 800 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 batteries. 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 800 can also be used as a dry flashlight on the surface. The anodized aircraft aluminum body measures approximately { 8 x 1.6 x 1.4 in | 203 x 40 x 35 mm } (length x head diameter x tube diameter) with a dry weight of { 12.5 oz | 354 gm } including batteries. Use the TTI-1004 Generic Mounting Bracket (Small) for helmet mounting this light.

The DGX 800 also includes two (2) FREE lithium-ion 18650 protected 3.7V batteries and FREE 110/220V 50/60Hz mains dual battery charger with US flat blade on the charger - an EU round mains plug adapter is available separately.

Burn times with the supplied batteries 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.

***We offer a 90 day warranty on the included battery and charger.

    I love these lights. They are bright, dependable, and inexpensive. The fact that they use 18650 batteries is great. I had mine for a couple years and lost it, so I replaced it!

  3. Backup light

    By

    on

    I bought this as a backup light for caving. The output is excellent and the size works. Unfortunately it already failed after only a few dives and on the 3rd battery charge. I expect DGX will exchange it but will have to see how long the next one lasts. Hopefully this is one of those rare early product life failures.


    Comment by DGX: The "generic" value battery we include did fail and we replaced it for the customer.

  4. Excellent value, fantastic lighting.

    I waited until I hit 15 dives with this light before writing a review, and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase. A regular dive buddy of mine uses a Light and Motion Sola 800, and I can hardly tell the difference between our beams (the color is a bit more “blue” with the LaM). Given the $200+ price difference between these two lights, it’s a no-brainer to give the DGX a try.

  5. I'm not a Diver!

    I have woods behind my house and when I let my dog out I use my powerful 800 to sweep the area. I wanted a quality diver light that I can keep on the back pool deck for quick access that will hold up in the Florida humidity swings. I also have a DGX 300 for the front porch!
