Dive Scurion 
£765.00

Dive Scurion

The original high quality, high tech, and very bright caving lamp, but now rated to -150m. Each unit is individually tested to depth before being released for sale. Maximum output is 1600 lumens: 800 on spot (level 4), and 800 on flood (level 4). The 1500 will last nearly 3 hours on this setting. One medium setting (level 2 spot, level 2 flood) will give around 24 hours light. Lowest setting (level 1 spot or flood *only*) will give in the region of 106 hours. The Scurion website gives the full matrix of brightness against duration for the 1500; the Dive model is effectively the same. The Dive Scurion has a particularly tightly focussed spot, making it very useful for rigging (both finding it, and creating it) and spotting up avens. It will cut through murky sumps pretty well, and is a pleasure in big, clear continental waters! The flood is like that of the 1500 and is very easy on the eyes while caving in dry passage The Dive has an extra heavy duty alloy battery case, this is opened...
Warmbac Tonnerre 22 litre
