Ikelite have been hitting a lot of home runs lately. With some fantastic packages and a great new website to name just two. Their new Vega has been looming for a while now, but it’s finally available in stores and is well deserving of your attention.
The Vega packs a lot of power into a compact and travel friendly package. Users can switch quickly between full, half, and quarter powers for video, focusing, macro photography, or to use as a backup dive light. Power level is controlled by a large, easy to turn dial on the rear of the light. A premium, high-capacity built-in rechargeable battery provides up to 3 hours run time on a single charge.
A ring of 6 LED indicators on the back of the light will give you power level (blue LEDs) and remaining battery information (red LEDs) at a glance. The rear LEDs are bright enough to see during a day dive yet unobtrusive when diving at night.
Each Vega is completely factory sealed and water pressure tested for care-free maintenance. The clever rear dial over-rotates to a secondary “off” position with lock to prevent the light from accidentally turning on when not in use. Two gold-plated, independently waterproofed charger ports are deliberately hidden when the switch is in the safety lock position to eliminate the possibility of inadvertently shorting the light during travel.
