Underwater Kinetics Earns Accolades from Scuba Diving Magazine

Company Awarded both a Tester’s Choice Award and a Best Buy Recommendation for their C8 eLED® Plus light and a Tester’s Choice Award for their Sunlight SL4 eLED® light

POWAY, CA. – Underwater Kinetics has been awarded both a Tester's Choice Award and a Best Buy Recommendation from Scuba Diving Magazine for their C8 eLED® Plus light- the first high-intensity dive light that runs brighter under water than it does on land and a Tester's Choice Award for their Sunlight SL4 eLED® light- one of the smallest and brightest 4 C-cell dive lights on the market.

The C8 eLED® Plus features UK's proprietary ‘through the lens” heat sink which offers scuba divers a high-intensity dive light that runs brighter underwater and maintains constant brightness throughout the battery's life. The C8 eLED® Plus also features a unique optical design which unites two high intensity LEDs into one beam with twice the intensity. Weighing a mere 39 ounces, this work horse of a dive light runs up to ten hours, is depth rated to 500 feet and has a MSRP of $169.99.

The Sunlight SL4 eLED® light features a unique eLED® circuit which operates more efficiently and allows it to burn brighter underwater. Perfect for seeking out unique marine life found under ledges, this bright little light also works well as a photo spotting light or to illuminate gauges and tables. The Sunlight SL4 eLED® can also be attached to protective head gear in technical diving applications. This small light, with dimensions of 6.2 L x 1.5 W x 1.7 D inches and weighing only 15.2 oz., has a burn time of 10-12 hours, is waterproof to 500 feet and has a MSRP of $76.99.

“Underwater Kinetics has always had two missions; to accelerate the development of technology in LED lighting, and to assist people in pursuing their passion of discovering and enjoying the underwater world and the outdoors”, said Mike Fattori, Director of Sales and Marketing of the US Outdoor Recreation & Government division for the company. “Receiving both the Tester's Choice Awards and a Best Buy Recommendation from Scuba Diving Magazine confirms that we are reaching our goals and encourages us to continue with what we find rewarding and enjoyable work,” said Fattori.
