Every year, Big Blue revamps their entire line up of underwater lights, offering more power, longer burn time, more versatility, in a smaller package!
A new feature introduced this year is the “Tri-Color” which combines two types of LED lights on the light head, one for Cool White and the other for Warm White. You can find this feature on the VL15000P, VL5800P and the AL1800XWP (Black Molly II).
The new green colored Li-Ion batteries give all the lights an energy boost with more longer burn times and faster charging.
Our top choices:
The VL7500P is a strong 7500 Lumen light, equipped with red light output as well as flood, 120 degree beam angle, rated down to 100m. On full power you will enjoy a burn time of 2.5 hours and up to 25 hours on the lowest setting (750Lm).
The light comes with a removable yellow filter, ball mount and hands free glove for different mounting options.
A perfect strong light for recreational photographers who are looking for more light in a travel friendly package!
The VTL5500P is a versatile, multi purpose light, featuring both flood and spot mode, as well as a red focus light.
Having both spot and flood modes in one light is an excellent perk, especially since spot mode uses much less energy. You can use spot to find cool marine life, then switch to flood when you start shooting!
The Black Molly III (AL2600XWP) is an incredibly compact light. With a staggering output of 2600 lumens for such a small size, this is probably the ideal light for travel, keeping your rig lightweight and saving space in your luggage.
It even includes a red light for focusing at night and comes with a ball mount for easy mounting.
Big Blue has also released a cool new line of underwater head lights featuring the HL1000XW (Extra wide 1000 lumen light), HL450XW(Extra wide 450 lumen light)and HL450N (Narrow beam 450 lumen light).
These useful little lights go as deep as 100m and boast a 2hrs max burn time, lighting up the way wherever you are facing.
Both XW lights contain a red focus light so that you won’t scare away skittish marine life.
