UNDERWATER LIGHTS
Underwater lights can be divided into many categories. Lights can be battery powered or rechargeable. The bulbs can be regular, Halogen or even LED. High Power Lights can be used for night diving, wreck diving, cave diving; or in any situation where maximum brightness is desired. Small Backup lights are also available. Lights can be handheld, canister (where battery pack is mounted separately), or even head mounted which frees both hands for work. First decide if you want a narrow or wide beam then desired burn time. You will find quite a few varied designs to choice from.

 

As a diver especially if a wreck diver, you will need two different types of lights and, of course, back up lights. Your main or primary light should be a powerful, dependable wide beam light capable of illuminating the wreck's interior darkness. For penetration dives, this primary light should have a burn time longer than the planned duration of the dive. For any wreck penetration diving, a second wide-beam backup light is also needed. The second type of light is a smaller spot light used to look deep into holes to help you spot lobsters and artifacts. Remember the location of these lights is critical. Each should be located in a secure place that doesn't cause a possible snag yet allows easy access. If your enjoyment comes from lobstering around shipwrecks, try taping a lobster size gauge to a small narrow-beam spot light. This combines two items of equipment and makes it quick and easy to find, catch and measure lobsters without fumbling around for a gauge. Remember, as with night diving, it is important never to shine your light into your own or anyone else's eyes. This would have an immediate negative effect on night vision ability.
