How to maintain your dive lights?

Tips for Safely Operating Dive Lights

 

Eighter the light comes with single battery like 18650 ,32650 or  more than 4 pcs 18650 batteies , it is better to place the light in a bucket of water or a sink full of water so as to protect the light's head from overheating  when practicing/learning with the light  on dry land. why ? because the light you use is professional designed for diving 
 

  • Always keep one battery in the charger while using the second, and then swap the partially used battery for a fully charged battery between dives. Even though you may still have 75% battery life remaining after the first dive, a safe diver will want to have all the battery strength possible in the event they surface and need to rely upon the emergency beacons.  
  • Eighter the light comes with  a single battery like 18650 ,32650 or more than 4 pcs of 18650 batteries ,it is better to place the light in a bucket of water or a sink full of water so as to protect the light's head from overheating when practicing or learning with the light on dry land . why? because the dive light you use is professional design or diving .   the headd built up on land might damage the torch's circuitry .
  • make sure the battery is fully charged for the first use .please remove the battery if not in use to advoid leakage . always keep  a set of spare fully charged batteries during your dive trip  .Even though you may still have 75% battery life remaining after the first dive, a safe diver will want to have all the battery strength possible in the event they surface and need to rely upon the emergency beacons.  
  • Dive with the light on 50% or less until you spot something of interest and then increase or decrease the illumination as needed. This will help conserve battery strength for later times during the dive or an emergency situation.
  • Never leave the recharger operating on a surface that absorbs heat such as a bed or clothing but instead leave it on a hard surface with some ventilation such as a countertop. Lithium-ion batteries get warm and at times seem hot during recharging.  
  • Always remove the batteries from the light when traveling. The light head itself gets warm and you do not want the light to accidentally be turned on and create an unsafe environment in your luggage. It’s a good idea to place lithium batteries in a plastic (and waterproof) box. Lithium batteries must be transported in your carry-on luggage .O ring must be cleaned every time after diving . remove any foreign objects from the o ring ,then apply a thin layer of silicon . replace your o ring every 6 months to 12 months.
