About Ikelite PCm (2nd Gen) LED Lite

Ikelite's 2nd Generation LED lights contain sophisticated circuitry and heat sink technology to ensure that they stay bright throughout its lifetime. Other lower cost lights run unregulated, reducing overall light output with extended use and limiting the lifespan of the LED. A specially designed lens concentrates these exceptionally bright LEDs to form a powerful and penetrating spot beam. Many divers prefer the natural looking light of white LEDs.

Ikelite selected the highest quality 5-watt 205 lumens white LEDs for maximum brightness and durability. Ikelite's highly efficient drivers yield an LED lifespan of 50 - 100 times the life of standard incandescent lamps, making replacement bulbs virtually obsolete. LED lights burn 2 1/2 to 3 times longer (5 hour burn time) on a set of 4 "AA" alkaline/Ni-MH batteries than their halogen counterparts. Less frequent battery replacements help both your pocketbook and the environment. These LEDs maintain their maximum brightness level much longer and without the low-battery "dimming "effects of traditional lights.

The PCm LEDs run cool and can be used for extended periods of time above water-making them the perfect choice for every adventure. When the batteries are drained, the LED lights continue to emit a lower intensity output for hours or even days-long after incandescent lights have quit. This extended illumination period can make all the difference in an emergency situation. Light is rated to the depth of 300' (90 meters). Light measures 2" x 4" (50 x 101 mm) and comes with an Instruction Manual.

The Ikelite PCm (2nd Gen) LED Lite is commonly used for Close-Up Viewing, Night Diving, Professional, Recreational, Safety Backup and more. The Ikelite PCm (2nd Gen) LED Lite is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Advanced among others. The Ikelite PCm (2nd Gen) LED Lite is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Ikelite PCm (2nd Gen) LED Lite: Compact, High Intensity, Long Bulb Life, Reliable, Well-Focused.

    This is the BEST dive light you can have.

    I use is as my Primary dive light.

    I dive for lobsters weekly in New England, and this light it great for peeking in holes.

    Also, with the wrist strap and the lights small body, I can quickly drop it to use both hands, and then flip it back into my hand with a flick of the wrist.

    QUICK TIP: If the light blinks, and you have to hit it to turn it on -- this means the metal battery connectors just need to be bent up a bit to make clean contact again.

    Concerned at first disassemble

    The manufacturer should improve the disassemble instructions with better pictures. I almost broke the on/off switch.

        As a disclaimer, I will say that I haven't had this in the water yet but I was surprised how bright it was when I got it. Seems like a nice back up light. Time will tell

            This light replaced an old bulb type backup light.
            The new LED light was considerably brighter and still a nice compact light that fit easily into a BCD pocket.

                Best dive light ever
                Plenty of light in small package
                Works well for night dives as well as highlighting
                anything in daylight
                Slowly uses the 4 AA batteries, LED very efficient and bright.
                First saw a dive guide use it, got one and loved it. Now my wife and I have three of them!

                Questions about this item:

                Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
                ANTHONY K  needed a backup light
                j m  So. I was trying the instructions, taking it apart, etc. It is a real bear to take apart, and so far I have only managed to put it back together lopsided... Am I making this harder than it needs to be, or is it just that hard to do? The instruction sheet is really minimal. THANKS
                JOHN C  Don't know what you mean by lopsided. The easiest thing would be for me to send pictures, but this response box won't allow that. To open the Ikelite, push the small white tab toward the bulb portion of the light and while holding it in that position, slide the C-shaped locking ring upward about 1/4". (Not easy to do) The bulb portion of the light should easily slide out. There are two black battery holder parts. One has a small black post in the center. That battery holder is the BOTTOM holder and goes in the case first, BLACK POST DOWN. Next place the flashlight case in front of you, base down on the table with the black locking ring (C-shaped) to your left and in the open position. Now place the TOP black battery holder in the case with the small black round post facing up. The post should be to your right and away from you. (This is just to see how the batteries will be inserted). Now look at the tiny marks on the TOP battery holder to see the position of the + and - marks. Now, remove the TOP battery holder and place the batteries in the correct way corresponding to the + and - marks. Replace the TOP battery holder with the small round black post to your right and away from you. (If the black post is in the wrong position, the light won't close). Be sure that the C-shaped black locking ring is still in the unlocked position and to your left. Place the bulb holder portion in place with the on/off switch to your right. Press the bulb portion gently down until it seats completely, then slide the C-shaped locking ring to the right untill it "clicks". Hope this helps. I've added larger + and - marks with a silver permanant marker. Also found that rechargeable batteries jam in this Ikelite. They are slightly larger in diameter than non-rechargeables. Tried a different brand of batteries, same problem. I have an older Ikelite that rechargeables fit in, so I think they molded the new cases slightly smaller. Bummer.
                j m  John - I apologize for my delay in responding to your kind assistance. Your explanation was spot-on. After a couple of tries, it works very well. I did find that the tiny metal contact plates fall out very easily, and have gotten adept at putting them back in. Thanks for your help.
                j m  Does this light have a loop or such to hook a retractable line to?
                CHRISTOPHER M  Yes. It comes with a loop for your wrist but you can easily put on a retractable line. I have a couple of these lights. An incandesant and a LED. The LED is a lot brighter. I have normally carried them as a secondary. When I do this I use a retractable cord and attach to my BC. There have been incidents where I have loaned them to someone who didn't have any light. In that case I use the wrist cord. (Don't forget to keep fresh batteries in the light. better to spend a little extra than to run out of light. I normally change batteries after 3-4 hours use. I then use the batteries for remotes, etc. and always remove batteries when stored). Good Diving
