More information about the Walrus D08 LED Torch
The Xtar Walrus D08 is a high output dive torch offering a maximum output of 2000 lumens of white light from the Cree XP-E2 LED and can be submerged up to 100 metres depth.
A high colour rendering index LED (CRI ≥ 95) means the D08 has an extreme colour rendering capability with the light profile resembling natural sunlight and therefore reducing eye strain while providing a vibrant and detailed view of objects, which is great for underwater photograpy.
Another feature to aid underwater photography is the secondary red LED as it also helps to provide better colour rendition as red light is naturally scarce in deep water environments. The D08 has a beam range of 40 m and offers a wide 120° beam angle for maximum coverage, which is great for use with cameras with a wide field of view.
Powered by four included Xtar 18650 3500 mAh lithium-ion batteries, the D08 has a run-time of up to just over 4 hours on the high setting. The batteries are charged externally in the supplied Xtar MC4 battery charger that comes with a USB cable so you can plug it into the computer, or using the USB adaptor it can be charged via the mains.
The torch is turned on and off with the main push button on the head of the D08. Once on the tail cap selector ringcan be turned to R for red light, H for high output, L for low output, O for off or SOS for the signal mode.
Above the on/off button there are three power indicator lights to show remaining battery power so that you don't get left in the dark underwater. Three lights indicates above 75% power, two lights indicate 50-75% power, one light indicates 16-50% power and flickering light indicates less than 16% power with approx. 30 minutes remaining.
The D08 can be locked out to prevent accidental activation in transit. With the light off press the power button 5 times in quick succession and the light will flash once it is in lockout. Repeat the same process to take the light out of lockout mode.
A tripod socket allows it to be tripod mounted for photography use or attache to a photography rig with the right connection. A lanyard is also included to keep the torch securely on you wrist just in case you drop it whilst diving.
The hard nylon carry case makes transporting the D08 with accessories easy and even has room for any extra small accessories you may need to take with you on your diving trip.
