Serious Deep Divers Will Want To Check Out Hollis’ New LED1600 Canister Light

If you’re an avid cave, wreck or ocean diver and are in the market for a new dive light, Hollis may have just the thing for you.

Hollis recently unveiled its new LED1200 Canister Light, made from the same 6061 T6-grade aluminum used on commercial aircraft. Its redundant seals in the light head and battery ensure no flooding will occur, and two canister lid options are available for standard or side-mount configuration.

Brand Manager Nick Hollis says:

“We’ve constructed the LED1200 Canister Light using only the best quality components, and we’re excited for consumers to experience how reliable this primary light is. Mark our words, it’s the most dependable primary light Hollis has ever produced.”

The LED1600 has a bunch of key features, including a heavy-duty light head, 1200-Lumen output at 6,000 Kelvin and 6-degree MR11 reflector for a tight beam when signaling; your choice of elastic goodman handle (standard) or hard goodman grip (sold as an accessory); a secure battery canister that houses a 5.2aH (57.5wH) Li-Ion battery pack; and a five-hour-long runtime and charge time of three hours from full discharge.

Those features barely scratch the surface, though. The LED1600 retails for US$899.95/~745 Euros, and you can find more info about it at
