Lithium Ion Battery Powered Light
Salvo introduces the next evolution in lighting. An evolution in sources of power; Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) batteries is the next logical choice for powering your dive light. Lighter in weight, the batteries have substantially more energy than the current Nickel Metal Hydride (NIMH) batteries.
Coupling Li-Ion power with the recent change in technological advances in the ballast, we can now make a smaller and lighter light head, and lighter canister since the weight of the batteries are less. Being that the light head is smaller and lighter, it is less likely to get in the way of computers and bottom timers. This is a major advantage to the weight conscious traveler when taking flights to overseas dive destinations.
Our flagship of the Li-Ion lighting comes with a remote ballast. What does this mean? The ballast is in the same canister that the batteries are in, and the ignition source is in the light head just behind the bulb. The igniter behind the bulb is a mere 1.75 inches (44 mm) diameter and 2 inches (50 mm) in length.
Our current model that has the remote ballast is the 21-watt High Intensity Discharge (HID) light. This remote ballast system allows for the light head to be much smaller than its counter parts. Since the ballast is in the canister, we have designed a New Dry Lid structure to prevent the intrusion of water into the canister if a cord or a switch boot happens to become damaged or cut.
The Li-Ion battery packs contain electronics for precision charging and discharging. Plus, it contains short circuit protection in the event of improper charging or discharging. So the batteries will simply turn off to prevent over charging or short circuit.
Specifications for the remote ballast include:
21 Watt Hid Focusable with 1500 Lumen output @ 6500 Kelvin
4.5 hours of burn time with 7.2 Amp Lithium Ion batteries
Each battery contains electronics to ensure proper charge, discharge and short circuit protection
