A review of the new DCT Canister underwater light from Mares' XR range!
"I’m delighted with my new Mares DCT canister diving light: with 3200lm full power, it allowed me to illuminate even the darkest corners of the Maltese wrecks I dove every day.
The feature I find to be extraordinary is the beam distance which, combined with a 12° diffusion angle, makes this torch equally effective even in good lighting conditions, such as during a diurnal dive on a reef.
The canister is lightweight and small in size, making the DCT very practical with tec rigs and also with standard recreational equipment.
Despite its dimensions, its runtime is also one of its strengths. This is thanks to 4 selectable intensity settings, allowing use from 2.10h at maximum power up to 27h with minimal power.
Exceptional value for money makes the Mares DCT a top-of-the-range product in its category".
The torches were also tested by Alessio Tenenti, Instructor, featured in the accompanying photos.
There are 3 new lights in the range:
DCT Canister Light - The all-purpose tek light!
DCTV Canister Light - The perfect light to illuminate your videos!
DCTS Canister Light - The DCTS includes a small canister, making it especially adapted to your sidemount dives.
You can find them all on the Mares website.
