HID Primary Lights
Whether you're swimming your favorite reef or plunging to the depths of the
Nest, we have your illumination needs covered.
Light Monkey HID primary lights are available in 4 power levels: 10W, 21W,
35W and 50W. All lights are machined from solid Delrin and are warranted to
withstand depths up to 500' (150m).
With the exception of the 10W, our HIDs utilize a split ballast system (in
which the ballast is located in the lid of the canister and the igniter is
located at the light head). This design allows for a much smaller footprint when
combined with the Goodman head. A focusable reflector comes standard, and video
reflectors are available as accessory items.
Because of their optimal power rating and compact size, Light Monkey
batteries consist of Lithium Polymer cells. The batteries are housed in a
factory-sealed canister to prevent water intrusion in case of an
improperly-latched lid or forgotten o-ring. These light systems all include a
universal charger that accepts an input voltage of 100V-220V with a 1.5aH
output. The charger is delivered with a standard US input cord, but adapters are
available for Australia, Europe, and the UK.
Switch pockets are recessed into the factory-sealed dry lid for additional
defense of the switch and boot. The dry lid also helps to ensure protection of
the light system in the unfortunate case of a cut cord or punctured switch boot.
ALL Light Monkey lights fall below the Equivalent Lithium Content (ELC)
threshold mandated by TSA, and are both safe and allowed for air travel.
