The Dive Rite BX-2 is a great torch used at Dive Manchester by some of our instructors. They especially like the tight beam for UK waters but also the build quality.
Powerful, reliable, and simple—the BX2 is everything that a top notch diving light should be. Building on the highly rated BX1, the BX2 incorporates the latest LED technology into a stronger and more refined package. The CREE XP-L High Intensity LED and smooth reflector produce a crisp, tight hot spot ideal for signaling or peering under a reef ledge, while still providing a wide halo of light with enough side spill to light up a room.
The compact body has been completely redesigned to incorporate a knurled grenade pattern for a secure grip even with gloved hands. Thickened body walls offer increased strength and durability and make the light feel as good as it looks. The hard coat anodized aluminum body uses double O-ring seals to keep out the wet stuff.
The included lanyard keeps the light close at hand, and a castled end cap design with recessed tie point allows the light to tail stand should you find yourself gearing up in the dark.
The light is powered by a single high capacity 3500mAH 18650 Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery which is included along with a universal USB fast charger. The battery is easy to change and replacement 18650 batteries are widely available. A direct drive system provides over an hour of peak brightness and then slowly tapers for an additional 2+ hours as the battery drains.
Mounting holes in the body make the BX2 fully compatible with Dive Rite’s QRM accessories. Add an optional QRM soft hand mount to turn the BX2 into a mini primary light, or add a QRM receiver to a helmet for easy one-handed operation. With the optional video diffuser, the BX2 can also be the perfect companion to your action camera.
With a simple single mode, twist on/twist off operation the BX2 will always be there in your darkest hour.
