  • Dealdo Light. DIY dive marker from dx blinkers

    posted by ARYcave

    good for DIY (see pics of Deal-do Lights here)
    Report on my underwater marker-light DIY project using these blinkers. Deal-do (name is coined by myself now!) lights.
    Specs:
    - tested to 300'+ ffw
    - powered by 4x600ma Li-Ion AA size, 14-16V, approx $12 total
    - 3W light emitter is automotive LED blinker (Pair/DC 12V)
    - burn time while still having a good brightness is 5 hrs (it still burns forever after that and gets tester bored)
    - twisting action power switch is magnetic reed operated from outside by magnet on a double loop of nylon line covered by 1.5 inch long bike innertube ring.
    - sticklight is slightly positive in water column and easily clipped to ziptie or double ended clip to it body (container has a groove under neck)
    - container comes from fitness drink $3 (swill tastes good too), make sure it is the cap with silicon film and not foil-sticker gasket (those will leak)
    - almost 360 deg light output
    - very durable heavy duty body
    Purpose:
    - flood stage video/photo light for wet conditions (cave). For photo scene you need 6-10 of them which create smooth spotless light.
    - submersible marker stick light
    - utility backup light while caving/sump diving

    If you heat up non-value CD, shape it as reflector while plastic is formable and stick this D-light in it - you could have a somewhat directional light pointed at some degree up without setting it on a tripod or anything.
    Hopefully I entertained you today. Dive safe and have fun. DX automotive LEDs are good for Dealdo Lights!
  • Decorative but not as bright as a halogen bulb

    posted by stuffi75

    - looks good (metal cylinder)
    The light output is quite directional - it is actually a reflector lamp.The lamp works well on a AC 12V supply, not only on DC as stated in the description.
    A nice looking and cheap way to make your own lighting - just be sure to use enough lamps to provide sufficient lighting. Not a 1:1 replacement for halogen lightbulbs.
  • Good product

    posted by Zenidot

    -Clear,comfortable and strong light but not too strong-Build quality siis good and it looks like it really is waterproof (haven`t tested)-I installed this to outdoor and it has worked fine over month now-Easy to install
    -I doubt how long this will last before starts to dim/blink or blackout. Next winter will tell a lot more about quality of this product.
    If this endures winter i would recommend it as a good product.
  • Nice look and resistant

    posted by brunoingegneri

    - Nice yellow look- The light bulb has good quality- More resistant than the standard shopping bulbs- Long life (4 months until now, of constant use, 'cause i like to drive with lamps on even at daylight)- Brighter than normal lamps, but not a annoying-powerfull glow- Comes in a nice pack
    - The color is a little too boring after some time.
    If you would like to have a yellow light bulb, you should buy this. But it has already bored me. So i changed back to mine normal light bulb. Only because the color annoys me.
  • Daylight running lights: good choice!

    posted by idemdito

    Looks good build, I think its waterproof, even at the leads entry . Per LED 3 LED-chips. I can't measure but compared with other LEDs I have, it's both a nice white color and more than enough Lumens to function as DLR. Case is good quality plastic and lens is real bright-clear. Lens is carrying E4 marking. After 30 minutes operation on my desk it wasn't running hot, I would say less than 25C.
    Better or right description for those 2 extra leads for turning / half-brightness. I checked: Yellow to +12V is lighting 10 orange LEDs while all whites are off: just simply connecting to the turn-light connection. When connecting the Yellow lead to the +12V, one row of whilte LEDs is switched off. Perfect!
    For $ 28,30 it is the best DLR I could find with plenty of Lumens to be seen - and that is the purpose!
    Next to that those options as Turn-light and Half power! Buy-It! Good Choice!!
