By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, May 8, 2019 @ 10:00 PM (EST)

SeaLife has unveiled a new member of its Sea Dragon line of compact handheld lights—the Mini 1300S. As the name suggests, the dive light has a 1,300-lumen output along with a narrow beam angle of 6° underwater (8° above water).

Depth-rated to 330 feet, the anodized aluminum light can be operated with one hand via its single button, which cycles through the various modes: three power levels (full, half, quarter), a one-second flash mode, and an emergency SOS mode. Burn time is two hours at full power, four hours at half power, and eight hours at quarter power.

Shipping now, the Sea Dragon Mini 1300S retails for $100 without battery or $120 with battery and charger.


SeaLife introduces Sea Dragon® Mini 1300S Dive Light

MOORESTOWN, NJ – SeaLife has introduced the new Sea Dragon Mini 1300S light. Featuring 1300 lumens, the compact dive light offers users tremendous brightness and a narrow long-range beam. All light functions are easily accessible with one handed operation to cycle through five light modes.

The five light modes are: full power, half power, quarter power, one-second flash signal and emergency SOS signal, both at full power. The light serves as a primary dive light or as a back-up light due to its combination of small, compact size, long run time and impressive power output. With a narrow beam angle of 8° (6° underwater) the powerful 1300 Lumen light is perfect for pointing out sea creatures at a distance, viewing in dark areas or crevices, getting your buddy’s attention or navigating a night dive.

The Mini 1300S light is constructed of an anodized aluminum machined body for maximum durability and corrosion resistance. The dual O-ring design ensures reliable waterproof seal down to depths of 330ft/100m. The light’s power and mode button also features a battery charge level indicator, which illuminates from green, to amber, to red when batteries charge is depleted.

The light runs for 8 hours on one 18650 rechargeable Li-ion 3500mAh battery at one-quarter power, 4 hours at the half power setting, or 2 hours at full power. Two single-use CR123 batteries may also be used with 4 hour run time at quarter power and 1 hour at full power. The battery grip features an integrated safety pressure release valve that relieves internal pressure built-up in the event the battery becomes damaged and overheats. The light is sold without batteries (Item SL654), or with a rechargeable 2600mAh Li 18650 battery and USB charger (Item SLKITO8).

The compact Sea Dragon Mini 1300S Dive Light will easily slip into your BCD pocket. A wrist lanyard with a BCD-clip is also included allowing divers to secure the light to their wrist or clipped on to their BCD D-ring.

The Sea Dragon Mini 1300S includes a wrist lanyard with BCD-clip, two spare O-rings and O-ring lube.

The Sea Dragon Mini 1300S will be available for shipment in May 2019.
