Offering 600 lumens and depth rated below 600 feet, the DGX Push Handheld Light features a true out-the-front 600 system lumens (1100+ raw LED lumens) of cool white 6500°K light in a tight 10° beam. Simply push the button on the base of the tail 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 Push has one of the highest performing single-die LEDs that is commercially available, the XLamp XM-L2 U4 LED, and is single-mode driven to prioritize light output over burn time. 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 Push 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 Push ON/OFF at the base for simple one hand activation; 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 battery installation 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 Push 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 { 5.7 x 1.6 x .9 in | 146 x 41 x 25 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 spot beam light head and triple O-ring seal body with push-button body and lanyard, plus a set of three spare O-rings. The DGX Push 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. 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 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.

  1. Best bang for the buck

    This little light (and it's brothers the dgx 600 & 800) is, I think, the best value in a dive light for recreational diving. While not intended as a primary light it works for me as one. I have the dgx 600 but bought this for the push switch which will work better when I use the soft handmount.

  2. Impressive for the price.

    I bought this to strap to my mask while cave diving. It’s nice to have a hands free light for line work. So far used twice and am very impressed. Very light weight, bright, and I love the push button on/off. Seriously considering purchasing a second to add as another back up light.

  3. Compact and BRIGHT hand light

    By

    I bought a couple of these flashlights after seeing my dive buddy use one while diving around Bonaire. These lights are replacements for Princeton Tec lights that we like, but that appear to have failing weld joints and impending leaks on the plastic body. The PUSH lights have a narrow beam (~10 degrees) and are bright enough to use to point out items on the bottom even on a day dive. They may actually be brighter than I'd want for night diving. Compact, and I bought straps to attach to my hand, for grip-free use. I am looking forward to trying them out in the water.

  4. Great little light

    Works as advertised. Stupidly bright, enough to feel hot when aimed at a patch of skin up close.

  5. Great Light, better value!

    Feel free to edit or use as appropriate.

    This light is a great value. The machining is superb and with glass lens, three 0-rings sealing system, and using the same rechargeable lithium battery, the light appears as bright as the more expensive models (rated at 1000 lumens, listed to the “Rite” on the DGX website). The pushbutton is engineered to fit loosely onto the light minimizing the effect of sand or sediment and is removable for cleaning.
    Two of us dove these lights for week in Cozumel. Our lights were the brightest in the group. We also use them in a Cavern diver’s course and noticed they were as bright as some of the older technology canister lights.

    No instructions come with the light. Instructions should have said:

    Charge the Batteries before use. These Cree LED lights with 3.7 V lithium ion batteries are significantly different from traditional systems. When these batteries need to be charged (voltage drops to 2.7 V), the computerized protective circuit switches them off completely. There is no fading of output as with traditional lights. This feature extends battery life because completely or deeply discharging lithium-ion batteries dramatically shortens their operating life. Recharging the batteries before they shut off will add an additional 200 or 300 charging cycles) to the life of the battery. Batteries are said to be best stored with a 40% charge. Therefore, a practical way to extend battery life is to charge them the day before diving or whenever you have use the light for more than a half hour.

    The charger indicates charging with a red light which switches to green when fully charged. As with all sealed diving equipment, the user must ensure the O-ring seals are free of all dust, dirt, or hair to ensure waterproof integrity.
