SCUBAPRO leaps light years ahead in underwater illumination with the introduction of the NOVA 700R rechargeable dive light. Technical to its core, it is machined from heavy-duty aluminum so it is lightweight and built to last. Its light head is equipped with the newest CREE XML2 LED, capable of pumping out between 700 and 800 lumens of brilliant illumination. It uses simple twist-on/twist off activation backed by double-O-ring seals. Strategically placed knurling (raised-up diamond-shaped indentations in the metal) improves grip and makes the twist activation that much easier. Shock-proof rubber protection on the end of the light head safeguards the electronics and provides an additional no-slip surface.
The NOVA 700R measures only 5.5 inches (14cm) in length and is powered by a single 18650 Lithium-ion or Lithium-ion polymer (LiPo)
For divers who like a durable, compact light that they can stow in a BC pocket, that offers maximum light intensity throughout an entire day or night of diving, and recharges quickly and easily, the NOVA 700R is the ideal choice. (A larger version powered by three C-cell
When it comes to evaluating a dive light's brightness, measuring lumens is the easiest and most useful comparison
When it comes to cranking out brightness, the NOVA 700R runs well ahead of the pack. Producing higher lumens than most primary dive lights -- including many large pistol-grip styles -- and out-pacing virtually all secondary dive lights, the NOVA 700R leads the market in sheer light intensity.
On a fully charged lithium-ion battery, the NOVA 700R maintains its maximum light intensity well through its charge, delivering a maximum burn time of approximately 2.5 hours.
