POWAY, CA. (October 07, 2008) – Underwater Kinetics will unveil two new dive lights at the upcoming DEMA Trade Show – the Super Q eLED®, the brightest most compact dive light it has ever introduced to the market, and the AquaSun eLED®, a rechargeable LED light which spews over 800 lumens of light underwater.


The Super Q eLED® features several of UK’s proprietary technologies- including their Compound Path Optics (CPO) system and Battery warming / Heat Recovery System. The self-contained Compound Path Optics (CPO) system offers intensely bright light in a palm-sized hand-held unit, making it the smallest dive light in its class. The UK Battery warming / Heat Recovery System is designed capture heat from the LED and channels it into the batteries, providing approximately 10% longer burn time and improved cold weather performance. The Super Q eLED is powered by a rechargeable lithium battery pack and offers the option of using 2 lithium CR123 batteries in an emergency. Unlike most conventional rechargeable lights which swiftly diminish in brightness once you turn them on, the Super Q eLED holds a consistent level of brightness for 4-5 hours before noticeable “drop-off” occurs. With the long shelf life of a lithium cell power source and its combination of ABS LEXAN®, polyurethane rubber and stainless steel construction for durability- the Super Q eLED is a great backup dive light, close-up video light, and compact warm water travel light.


For over 10 years the UK AquaSun 1200 served as a benchmark for superior dive light design. Committed to designing innovative, feature-rich products to fulfill their consumers’ needs, UK has introduced the next generation of the AquaSun- the AquaSun eLED®. A dual reflector system combines the power of 2 high intensity LED’s into a single intensely bright beam. Featuring the company’s “through the lens” heat sink technology, this new version of the old classic is equipped with a patented heat sink in the front lens which, when submerged in water, cools the LEDs to provide a 100% increase in light output as well as consistent illumination. Added eLED circuitry monitors the LEDs output to prevent overheating and offers the user a selection between high and low power settings for extended burn time. The NiCad rechargeable battery pack provides 2 hours of light at full power on a single charge.
