Same Great Light - New Lower Price!

"Cut the cord with the LX20 Handheld Primary Light." At only {6 in | 15 cm} in length and {2 in | 5 cm} in diameter, it's small in size and big in brightness. With 20,000 LUX (Technically rated at 2200 Lumens) at 6,500°K, the LX20's brightness out does most corded primary lights on the market today. Designed as a primary light, the 6-degree concentrated light beam from a polished metal reflector punches through the water lighting the way with a clean center spot. The LX20 includes the Dive Rite QRM soft hand mount, Qty 4 Lithium Ion18650 batteries and the appropriate charger with US style power plug. The LX20 has a {500 ft | 152 m} depth rating, a rotary magnetic on/off switch, and a double o-ring seal body. Its compact design makes it ideal for any type of diving requiring a primary light source.

LX20 has four modes; high power, medium power, low power, and strobe. Using four, Lithium Ion rechargeable 18650 3400ma protected-circuit batteries, the LX20 burns for:

  • 4 hours on HIGH power
  • 6 hours on MEDIUM power
  • 12 hours on LOW power
  • 36 hours in STROBE mode

What is the difference between the LX20 and the HP 50 handheld?

The LX20 boasts 4 hours of burn time on high power versus the HP50 at 1.5 hours. A diver looking for a handheld light but wanting the traditional canister light burn times... the LX20 is a better option. The HP50 is brighter overall and puts out a wider beam, but more meant to be used as an addition to the HP 50 canister light (i.e. for those dives you don't need the longer burn time).

Canister vs Handheld Lights

Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher (about 500 BC), wrote "Nothing endures but change."

A new class of lower cost technical dive light has begun to supplant the corded light head and battery canister form factor of the past. LED technology has advanced to the point where inexpensive backup lights are as bright or brighter than previous generation primary lights, plus LED is dramatically more reliable and much lower power consumption. With advancement in rechargeable battery technologies even the form factor of the large canister is being questioned. Today this means the main operational difference between a backup and primary light is the burn time, with many divers forgoing the traditional canister primary and handheld backup in favor of multiple handheld primaries. However, for extreme environments that demand the maximum burn time with maximum lumen output the newest generation canister lights seem to still be the preferred choice of exploration divers.
