Lights, Camera, Action. Lights out, parties over. Okay those are the only two I can come up with… so do you have any idea what I might be talking about today? If you guessed a light, you would be correct! If you are correct, would that mean you had that ah ha, light bulb moment? Just a thought. Let’s see how many more of these corny things I can come up with. Probably not many… But don’t think for one minute I’m not trying!
So lights… what can I tell you about flashlights? Why would you want to dive with a flashlight? Well because sometimes when you do the wrecks diving, the deep diving, or possibly even cave diving (sorry never done it so I’m just guessing at this point) you want to light things up so you know what you’re looking at. Bingo.
What light might I be discussing today, because there are quite a few out on the market? Well, let’s look at the Nova 720. This is a pretty slick little flashlight.
The outside of the Nova 720 is made from heavy-duty aluminum, which makes it lightweight but durable. The light head itself is equipped with the newest CREE XPL LED that makes it capable of pumping between 700 and 800 lumens of brilliant light. One of the coolest features I noticed is the fact you can run at 50% mode allowing more burn time if you don’t need full power mode.
