The Underwater Kinetics POV Black Pak Lighting System is a complete Lighting System Specifically Designed for POV Cameras like the GOPRO Series. The System consists of the UK Flex Grip and the AQUALITE Video LED Light. Bring out the incredible underwater colors and intricate detail of marine life with the AQUALITE Video LED Light. Fish and invertebrates hiding under ledges and holes often receive little ambient sunLight and require additional Lighting for underwater videos to come to life. Lighting the foreground with dayLight colored AQUALITE illumination, while allowing the delicate blues and greens of the open water background to fade into the depths can produce prize winning videos.
The robust design throughout features double o-rings on the front and back rotary seals, anodized machined HYDRALUM power head and rotary switch, high impact ABS anti-corrosion body and stainless steel thread attachments. The construction of the AQUALITE is solid and simple. Performance is peaked by allowing direct cooling of the LED and electronics through the anodized corrosion resistant head and tail switch. The body is molded from ABS to also prevent sea water corrosion. The switching is all mechanical in order to avoid interference with your compass as with magnetic switches.
Burn time is more than enough: 1.3 hour (600 lumens), 2.3 hour (340 lumens), 4.2 hour (220 lumens) or 8.8 hour (115 lumens). Light is Depth Rated to 500' (152.4 meters). Use the 90° beam for the ultra-wide fisheye type cameras like the GOPRO. The brightness can be stepped up from 100 to 650 lumens in 4 levels (full, 1/2, 1/3, 1/6) using the rear power dial. The 4 step adjustment in brightness gives you the opportunity to control the brightness of highLights and shadows with studio type Lighting. Or, just dial down the power to 115 lumens and it'll go for up to 9 hours as a focusing Light. Mounting the AQUALITE to your camera rig is easy. UK provides two 1/4 -20 threaded screw holes (1.2"/3.48 cm apart) on the side of the Light which allow it to be connected to almost any ball joint or flexible photo arm on the market. The arm makers all have adapters for this type of attachment.
Power is supplied by a lithium ion battery which is charged from any USB power outlet or the included wall adapter. An additional battery is also included, so that one can be on charge while the other is out diving. Also, all batteries eventually wear out. The AQUALITE will not require a trip back to the manufacturer for replacement. Those of you who are more experienced in underwater video will appreciate the fact that the AQUALITE is so small that you can use two or more Lights and still not be over weighted. A pair of AQUALITE set at different brightness levels will add additional dimension and beauty to an underwater subject. So if you want to add color and make a big leap in quality for your underwater videos or still photos, the high intensity wide angle AQUALITE is a great choice.
Connecting the dots between the AQUALITE and your POV Camera, the UK Flex Grip is an Easy, One Handed Video Arm with a Wide Range of Motion for that Perfect Lighting Angle. The UK Pro Flex Grip has Twist Knobs to Lock Arm in Position. Flex Grip has an Integrated Lanyard, Mounts to the AQUALITE with 1/4-20 Screws and Easily-Attaches to your POV Camera Attachment Point at Base. The Underwater Kinetics UK Flex Arm measures 12.2" x 10.4" x 3.4" (31cm x 26.4cm x 8.6cm) and Collapses for easy Storage. UK Flex Grip is made from Durable Corrosive Resistant Material. The Lighting System comes in a POV40 Hard Case with Custom Foam Inserts that Fit the Light System and GOPRO HERO 2 or 3 (not included) Cameras. The Case also has a Lid Pouch for Accessories or a Tablet. The Case is Waterproof to 10' (3 meters), has a Pressure Equalization Latch and comes with a Neoprene Shoulder Strap with Air Cell Technology for Comfort in Transport. Video Light System is covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty.

Comments about Underwater Kinetics POV POV Black Pak lighting system:
Although I have not yet used the light on a dive, I am truly impressed with the quality and compactness of the POV Blackpac. Charges quickly and really puts out the light on high. The handel is also well made and I really appreciate the built in lanyard. Also includes a strap for hand use only. Only one caveat, Just two screws are included to attach the light to the Handel or the hand strap. Every time you assemble the light I can see losing one of the screws. But hey they are cheap buy some extra. I would recommend this to anyone like myself who is an occasional diver who uses a GoPro.
