Scubapro adds new models to dive light range

Published

on

The new NOVA 850 series replaces the previous 720 series and are characterized by even more lumens and outstanding brightness.

In addition, the range is complemented by the new compact but strong NOVA 250.

The Nova 850 delivers intense illumination, ideal for lighting up the dark spaces and bringing out the vibrant color on night dives as well as day dives. It is machined from heavy-duty aluminium so is both lightweight and built to last. It’s also easy to use. A 50% mode allows to increase burn time if full power is not necessary.

For divers looking to brighten their dives, the Nova 850 is the perfect choice.

The NOVA 850 Series

  • Rugged matte black, blue accents aluminium body offers a stealthy “tech” look while providing lightweight long-term durability.
  • Equipped with a Cree XPL LED.
  • 850 lumen illumination / 15,000 lux @1m.
  • Double O-ring seals ensure watertight integrity.
  • Push-button switch on the end of the light is easy to activate, even when wearing gloves.
  • Extended light head shroud prevents the light beam from blinding other divers.
  • Over-pressure valve releases battery off-gassing – a safety feature not normally found on dive lights at this price point.
  • A depth rating of 150m ensures worry-free lighting in virtually all diving conditions.
  • Burn time: up to 2 hours on full power.
  • Available as spot version (NOVA 850) with 8° light beam or WIDE version (NOVA 850 WIDE) with 80° beam angle (lower lux).
  • Packaged in a reusable semi soft box.

Delivering 250 lumens of illumination, the Nova 250 is powered by one CR123A battery (rechargeable or disposable).
