The Scubapro Nova 720R is a technical dive torch that is designed for improved power and durability over other torches in it's price range. A great, tough little torch that will keep up with any level of diving and can be used with rechargeable 18650 Lithium-ion batteries.
Machined From Heavy-Duty Aluminum the NOVA 720R is lightweight yet built to last, while delivering powerful illumination. Strategically placed knurling, raised-up diamond-shaped indentations in the metal, improves grip and makes the twist activation that much easier. A shock-proof rubber protection over the end of the light head safeguards the electronics and provides an additional no-slip surface. Rated to a maximum depth of 300m (1000ft), equipped with an overpressure valve on the end cap, an important safety feature not normally found on torches in the Nova 720R's price range.
CREE XPL LED Bulb produces over 700 lumens. It is powered by a single 18650 Lithium-ion or Lithium-ion polymer (LiPo) battery. The Nova 720R provides 2.5 hours of burn time and measures 14cm (5.5 inches) in length.
Simple Twist-On / Twist Off activation backed by double-O-ring seals is easy to use even with the thickest gloves and protects from flooding.
Producing Higher Lumens than most primary dive lights, including many large pistol-grip styles, and out-pacing virtually all secondary dive lights, the Nova 720R leads the market in sheer light intensity. With a 15° hot spot and a 90° even wide beam you can focus on one thing whilst illuminating everything around it too.
A Fully Charged Lithium-Ion Battery will maintain its maximum light intensity evenly through its charge, delivering a maximum burn time of approximately 2.5 hours.
- Equipped with the newest CREE XPL LED (720 and 720R only; "WIDE" versions equipped with CREE XML LED).
- Two modes: 100% and 50% power.
- Diamond-shaped knurling on both handle and light head guarantees a firm grip, with or without gloves.
- Easy twist on/twist off activation allows for trouble-free operation, regardless of depth.
- Shock-proof rubber protection keeps the light head safe from knocks and bumps.
- Over-pressure valve releases battery off-gassing -- a safety feature not normally found on dive lights at this price point.
- A depth rating of 1000ft/300m ensures worry-free lighting in virtually all diving conditions.

Scubapro Novalight 720R Torch - Features
|Battery Level Indicator|
?Whether the torch has a built-in battery level indicator.
?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 dives
?Advances in bulb technology has created a number of different options for light source, each with their own advantages and disadvantage:
Halogen & Xenon - The oldest technology, a spring like filament that glows white hot then electricity is passed through it, producing light. Later filament bulbs are filled with Xenon to produce a more intense and brighter light.
HID - High Intensity Discharge lights have a capsule of gas instead of the tungsten filament. HID bulbs typically produce more light at a lower temperature and are significantly more efficient as they produce a lot less heat and require less energy to maintain the light level.
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.
|Burn Time at Max (Mins)|
?The length of time that the torch will provide light at 100% power.
|Lumens at Max|
?The torch lumen output at 100% power.
|Maximum Depth (m)|
?The maximum depth that the torch has been rated to by the manufacturer
?Whether the torch is supplied with a rechargeable battery and charger or whether it runs off standard batteries.
?There are a number of different switch types available.
Manual switches physically complete the circuit by moving the contacts inside the torch. This type of switch passes through the body of the torch which adds a possible point of failure but are signifcantly cheaper to produce.
Twist caps 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 when turn off the torch there is a very small risk that the torch could flood
Magnetic switches are becoming more popular as they do not need to pass through the body of the torch and instead use magnets to operate the torch. This eliminates any potential flood risks resulting from a failing switch.
Kinetic torches are controlled by motion and are the most water tight solution.
|Torch Body Material|
?The material that the main body of the torch is made from.
Plastic will produce a typically lighter torch but a torch made of aluminium will be stronger and more robust due to the density of the material.
?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 see.
?Whether the torch offers multiple power levels other than the standard on and off.
