XRE 1250 Torch
The Metalsub XRE 1250 Torch is a tough primary dive light with a Military grade finish and practical 10° spotlight beam. Strong and rechargeable, you charge the XRE-1250 by simply setting it in its cradle, no swapping batteries or unscrewing sections, just pop it in its cradle and grab it when you need it.
Who's the XRE1250 For?
The XRE1250 is a decent size primary light for technical or recreational divers who need a simple, tough torch that is easy to use and just does its job. It may not look fancy but its 1200Lumens is plenty bright enough for most situations and 10° beam is great because it will illuminate what you want to focus on and a little bit of the scene around it without blinding divers around you.
It's important to keep your torch attached to you with the included lanyard but a good Boltsnap will act as a good backup.
If you're looking for a smaller torch, the Mk1 Torch is much smaller and has 1000Lumens of light with a similar effortless charging system. If you like the style of the MetalSub Torches then consider the FinnSub Light Range too.
- The front glass is made of hardened glass and the reflector is designed to obtain a nice even spot beam.
- Like all Metalsub lamps, this lamp is dimmable between 10 and 100% and provided with a possibility to emit an SOS light signal.

Metalsub XRE 1250 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.
|Unique, Rechargeable, Li-Ferrite|
?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.
|Max Burn Time (mins)|
?The length of time that the torch will provide light at 100% powerClose.
|Max Depth (m)|
?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.
