Best Dive Light for Cave Diving

Recreational and commercial divers know how difficult it is to find a dive light that’s bright, durable and lightweight enough to take cave diving. Between the tight spaces, oft-absent ambient light and endless chances to drop the torch on a hard surface, it’s no wonder cave divers are always on the search for the next best thing. And the new V3 Nemo Flood Light is exactly that – the best dive light for cave diving. Emitting a stunning 15,000 lumens in a wide 120-degree angle beam, the V3 Nemo Flood Light is the brightest dive light available for purchase. And when you’re in a pitch-black cave dozens of meters below the surface, “bright” is exactly what you need. The 18 Cree LEDs and 10 UV LEDs in the V3 dive light burn for up to 60 minutes at the highest setting. But as with all quality cave dive lights, it can also be adjusted to 20%, 40% and 80% power to preserve battery life and adjust brightness levels to eliminate backscatter in murky water. Here’s the best part: Because divers can swap out batteries while underwater, the V3 Nemo Flood Light is perfect for longer dives and deeper explorations. In addition to multiple power settings, the V3 Nemo Flood Light also features multiple different modes. Switch to one of the UV modes to enjoy a fluorescent cave dive, or...

Best UV Dive Light

Ultraviolet (UV) dive lights are relatively new to the market, but any diver who takes a splash at night, loves exploring coral reefs or simply wants to see an entirely new range of colors underwater, they’re a must-have. UV dive lights make it possible to see the brilliant colors of bioluminescence, stimulating single-cell organisms (like coral) so they show off in all of their glory. While there are several reliable UV dive lights out there, the V3 Nemo Flood Light is easily the best UV dive light money can buy. With a stunning 15,000 lumens and wide 120-angle beam, divers can get a clear, brilliant view of massive stretches of coral thanks to the light’s 10 UV LEDs. But this light isn’t just any UV dive light – it also houses 18 Cree LEDs to create five different intensity levels and several handy modes, including a standard wide-angle white floodlight. There’s simply no other light on the market as bright as the V3 Nemo Flood Light, yet it still has an impressive 60-minute burn time at the highest setting. Divers who want to keep their hands free while enjoying the colorful views will love the GoPro bracket and ball mount. Those who favor ease of use and maneuverability while diving in tight spaces to see every angle of the view also won’t be disappointed – weighing in at only...
