Battery Status Indicator
Our patented battery status indicator switch. Diver safety is the primary reason behind this unique design. This feature enables the diver and their buddy to know how much battery life and dive time remain on their torch before they need to ascend to the surface.
Blue [high] over 60%
Green[medium] 30% to 60%
Red [low] 10% to 30%
Battery indicator will Flash Red and light intensity will be reduced when 10 minutes of power remain. This allows the diver enough time to switch to their backup torch and avoid a potential stressful situation.
Turning On/Off & Power Option
All our torch designs have three output intensity levels of 100%, 50% and 25% for each function. This enables very long durations over multiple dives or extended durations when battery is low.
100% Brightness – Press button once
50% Brightness – Press button twice
25% Brightness – Press button three times
Pressing button again loops back to 100% brightness
Pressing button for between 2 to 4 seconds will power off the torch. The duration depends on the individual model.
Turning On/Off Strobe / SOS
SOS mode: When the torch is off hold button for between 2 seconds to 3 seconds depending on model.
Strobe mode: Press button once more.
Attention mode: On some models there is an attention mode that is activated by pressing the button once more.
When in Strobe mode pressing button for between 2 to 4 seconds will power off the torch. The duration depends on the individual model.
Video Light Modes
Our Series 5K video lights have many different modes (WIDE, RED, UV, SPOT, STROBE-AUTO-OFF). To go from one function to the other you just hold down the for 2 seconds
Press button once.
SPOT MODE (if available)
When in WIDE mode, press and hold the button for 2 seconds until the mode changes to SPOT mode.
When in WIDE mode (or SPOT mode if available), press and hold the button for 2 seconds until the mode changes to RED mode.
When in RED mode, press and hold the button for 2 seconds until the mode changes to UV mode.
Remove lithium-ion battery from the torch by unscrewing the light head from the torch body. See instructions for charging canister systems below*
Connect to the mains supply and switch power supply on
Battery is charging when indicator light is red
Battery is fully charged when indicator light is green**
** Our new USB charger has an additional battery charging state display with 4 different indicator segments.
This consists of four indicators for 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% charged. This function is useful as it saves the diver time when a battery is not fully charged by using the battery with the hightest power.
Care and Maintenance
The magnetic ring on the Video 5k can get clogged with sand and/or salt, so your product needs to be rinsed thoroughly after every dive including twisting the ring.
We have been asked why we don’t produce a twist type operation. We don’t consider the twist type operation to be reliable as divers could open it too much and cause the torch to leak. With our design we have had just a single switch leak in 1000’s of units.
