As soon as we saw the new dive lights by Nanight there was a unique sense of familiarity about them, despite having never seen them before. This is probably because Nanight’s three different dive light models have a distinctly utilitarian feel about them, like Ikea but with much less assembly required.
Nanight’s three different lights include the Sport2, Tech2 and Cave2 and they are each built from an aluminum housing that is optimized to include the biggest possible battery. This is in stark contrast to many dive light manufacturers who invest in custom made batteries and circuitry and pass that cost along to you, in the form of a fairly expensive dive light.
For example the Nanight Sport2 has an output of 4000 lumens with a run time of up to three hours and is priced at a very reasonable $280. The Tech2 has a remote battery with double the capacity for six hours of runtime at $470. The Cave2 is specially designed for cave diving with a more rugged construction, a large reflector focusing the light into a narrow beam of just five degrees and it runs for up to seven hours and costs $570.
The Cave2 and Tech2 have interchangeable LED clusters and lenses for changing different aspects of the light, including turning the Cave2 into a very nice light for video imaging. The build quality and design of the Nanight lights stand out in a sea of hundreds of different chinese made dive lights so it’s no surprise that Nanight is among one of the most popular brands among demanding divers in northern Europe.
