The Underwater Kinetics Super Q eLED Rechargeable Flashlight is the gold standard for small lights. When UK originally released it in 1974, it revolutionized handheld lighting forever. Underwater Kinetics newest generation has raised the bar even higher. It is incredibly small and bright, with the added feature of a rechargeable lithium ion battery and UK's latest eLED technology. Underwater Kinetics pioneered the use of LED optimized optics as well as custom electronic drivers for use in flashlights. The LED is the most significant innovation in portable lighting since the advent of the incandescent lamp. It is more efficient, less fragile, runs cooler, and has a 50-100 times improvement in life expectancy.
The unique electrical properties of the LED make it possible to attach it to an electronic circuit which controls power from the batteries in a flashlight in such a way that brightness and color of the beam remain constant as the batteries drain. Contrast this to a conventional flashlight with an incandescent bulb. With fresh batteries the light is extremely bright. As the batteries are consumed the light grows dim and the color turns more yellow. This feature is represented by the "e" used in naming UK eLED lights. Another unique feature of LEDs is that they continue to give light when there is very little power left in the batteries. The benefit is that even though the batteries are considered dead in any other type of flashlight, the LED continues to give light for hours or even days after the high brightness mode is past. For emergency situations this could make the difference.
Proprietary compound paths optics permit high efficiency and compact size. The beam produces a bright spot with almost no peripheral light for improved visibility in murky water. Light is powered by rechargeable lithium ion battery or in an emergency 2 optional 123-type lithium batteries. Universal 90-240 VAC, 50-60 Hz USB power supply and USB powered charging cradle are included. Energy conservation design transfers heat back into batteries for longer burn time and improved cold weather performance. The light is built to last with a high impact ABS, Lexan, polyurethane rubber, and stainless steel construction for durability. The light has a burn time of 4 hours and produces 90 lumens of brightness with a beam distance of 407' (124 meters) on land. The Underwater Kinetics Super Q eLED Rechargeable Flashlight is a great back-up dive light with a depth rating of 500' (152.4 meters). Light measures 4.4" x 1.5" x 1.4" (11.18cm x 3.81cm x 3.56cm), weighs 3.5oz (99.33g) and is available in multiple colors. The light comes with an owner's manual, USB charger, universal power supply, is proudly made in the USA and is covered by a limited lifetime warranty.
