Very Poor Quality

Apparently the "II" isn't the same quality as the original. I never even got it in the water. Unboxed it and after cycling the power switch a couple times the light wouldn't turn off. The switch would illuminate blue for a few pushes and then go out but the light stayed on the high setting. The only way to turn it off was to unscrew the body so the battery stopped making contact. I emailed Bigblue to ask what the difference was between the original and the "II" and Christine replied that...

solid quality narrow beam light

By arturo

from Sausalito, CA, US

Light feels and looks solid and well built. reflector and machining all looks quite precision engineered. I've seen several cheap ebay knock-offs that look similar however they just fail after a couple uses. For the money I would expect the Bigblue to tapdance or something but alas no; Only you get what you pay for because the Bigblue just works well and has not failed under the same use. I would describe it as Insanely bright compared to a "normal" 6 inch flashlight. It's brighter and whiter than the silverstar sealed beam headlamp on my truck. I took photos to show the narrow beam of the flashlight on the wall. Daytime in the shade one shot from 8 feet, one from 2 feet. You can see the narrow center part does not alter much with distance, and the closer photo shows the less bright illumination surrounding. Good for peering into narrow spaces as opposed to illuminating a broad area. I think I am going to have a nice long relationship with this light, mostly shallow freedives investigating caves, nooks and crannies Came with a nice little dry bag, instructions, 18650 battery and charger. extra o-rings and a (leaking) little tub of silicone grease. Big Blue you could improve that. A little color ring around the switch on the flashlight tells you the state of charge roughly. Nice. though it does give me pause wondering what possibilities for leaks exist on that switch...The instructions do not mention servicing or greasing the switch... 4 brightnesses and a SOS mode.

 

Good deal

Great light, battery is good for one dive. Excessive packaging.

 

Very Poor Quality

By SkydivingNerd

Apparently the "II" isn't the same quality as the original. I never even got it in the water. Unboxed it and after cycling the power switch a couple times the light wouldn't turn off. The switch would illuminate blue for a few pushes and then go out but the light stayed on the high setting. The only way to turn it off was to unscrew the body so the battery stopped making contact. I emailed Bigblue to ask what the difference was between the original and the "II" and Christine replied that the "II is slightly smaller" and "also comes with a dry bag." It looks like they also cut some costs by using inferior quality parts.

 

Awesome dive light

By Joe H.

The Big Blue AL 1200NP is an excellent dive light is providing tremendous illumination and long battery life. This is my second AL 1200 which I purchased for my wife. The light is very durable and the switch works flawlessly. That is not always the case with dive lights. But perhaps one of the best features is the customer service that Big Blue provides should you need any help. They are outstanding. I highly recommend the AL1200.

 

Great Light For the Money

By Scott S.

Super bright and charge lasts a long time. Great light for the money.

 

Good buy

By JoMarie A.

Great light. It’s small and fits nicely in my hand. Not super heavy and provides lots of light with its 1200 lumens.

what is the power source for this light? rechargeable or can it use batteries and what size?
Mark A on Jul 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have two as secondary lights. I keep them in my dive short pocket. For the money they are very bright. I have a 12000 watt canister light as my primary. They are brighter than that light. They are rechargeable over night. They come with it's own charger. I had one flood due to a hair on the o ring. So always check that. I also put a dab of silicone grease on the o ring every time I take it apart. Overall it's I good sturdy light. As a cave diver I depend on these lights. You can buy new batteries.
can you use regular batteries like AA size in this light or do you have to use the rechargeable one only?
Mark A on Jul 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No regular batteries just 18650's
