The Tovatec 3500S Torch is a powerful primary dive light that can boast up to 3500 Lumens of bright white light and a rechargeable battery that can run for 1h15m. The 13° spotlight beam is perfect for most divers so they can illuminate what they're looking at, without dazzling their buddy.
Who's the 3500 For?
The 3500 is a simple and effective dive torch for any scuba diver. Whether you're on a night dive and what to see where you're going or if you're in poor visibility and need a torch powerful enough to cut through the grime the 3500 is the torch for you.
Well built, the 3500 feels strong and solid in your hand and has a decent size to it too. The rechargeable battery can be charged inside the torch body by unscrewing the end cap. Just plug in the USB cable to a powered port and away you go, so you only have to bring one USB charger to power up all of your gear.

Tovatec 3500S Torch - Features
|Battery Level Indicator|
?Some torches come fitted with a battery level indicator so you know how much power you have left. Most are a colour coded light that gives you a rough idea of how much power you have left but some will estimate your remaining time in minutes.Close.
?Torches require a power source and either have a built in rechargeable battery, removable rechargeable battery or a standard size disposable battery.Close.

?Narrow beams are great for cutting through low visibility, helping a diver to see further without creating backscatter from the light reflecting off particles in the water. Narrow beams are able to penetrate further and are ideal for looking in openings or under rocks Wide angle beams are best for good visibility and spread the light over a larger area. A larger lit area means that the torch does not have to be continuous moved and are particularly effective on night divesClose.
?Advances in bulb technology has created a number of different options for light source, each with their own advantages and disadvantage but most today are LEDs. LED - unlike ordinary incandescent bulbs, Light Emitting Diodes don't have a filament that will burn out, and they don't get especially hot. They are illuminated solely by the movement of electrons in a semiconductor material. An LED is a lot more efficient than a filament bulb and also a lot more durable than both filament and HID bulbs.Close.
?If measured, the buoyancy of the torch is how positive or negatively buoyant the torch is in water. Usually measured in fresh water, knowing the buoyancy of your torch can help with your overall buoyancy and weighting so you can be better neutrally buoyant when diving. Measured in GramsClose.

?The maximum depth that the torch has been rated to by the manufacturerClose.
|Max Output (lumens)|
?The maximum brightness of light the torch can produce at its highest setting.Close.
?There are a number of different switch types available. Push buttons require the diver to depress a button to activate the torch and change power settings. Many use a magnet on the outside of the body so that no part goes through the body itself but some still do with seals to prevent water ingress. Twist ends, collars and heads are very common. The diver simply twists the bottom cap or head unit to complete or break the circuit. Twist caps usually have a double o-ring to protect the battery and electronics from damage. The disadvantage of a twist cap is that if the diver was to unscrew the cap too much, there is a risk that the torch could flood. The O-Rings also wear with use so prolonged use can result in flooding. Kinetic torches are controlled by motion and are the most water tight solution.Close.
?Torches are usually either a polymer or anodised aluminium for corrosion resistance. Plastic parts are cheaper but more fragile to damage.Close.
?Whether the entire torch (including batteries) is held in the hand or whether the light unit is connected via an umbilical cable to a seperate battery unit for extra capacity and burntime. Photo / Video Lights have an even beam that floods the scene with light with no hard edges or hotspots so it doesn't look odd or stand out in your pictures. Ultra Violet Lights use a specific wavelength of blue light, not usually Ultra Violet, that excite certain parts of animals that cause them to glow and fluoresce showing unusual patterns that the naked eye cannot seeClose.
?Whether the torch offers multiple power levels other than the standard on and off.Close.
