Safety Warnings

Avoid using light above water for prolonged periods of time. The light is designed for underwater use to help displace heat. Turn light off if any parts of the light become hot to the touch. If water has entered the light, immediately turn off power and discontinue use. Remove batteries and allow the inside to dry. Contact the SeaLife service center for repairs. Use new or freshly-charged AA batteries. Do not mix old and new batteries together. Remove batteries from light before transporting, traveling or long periods of storage. Do not expose light to heat or direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time. Observe all SCUBA dive safety rules and control your buoyancy at all times. Consult your dive instructor for dive safety questions. Visit for updates to this manual and underwater photography tips

All the Pieces


IV. Loading batteries 1) Unscrew the battery cap 2) Remove the battery holder 3) Insert 4 new or freshly charged AA batteries into holder. 4) Make sure each battery is installed correctly according to the polarity markings on the battery holder. 5) Make sure O-ring and sealing surfaces are perfectly clean and undamaged. 6) Screw on battery cap (hand tighten – don’t use tools)

Operating the Light

1) Push and hold the mode button for 1 second to power ON the light. 2) Push the mode button to change between the following light modes: 100% ➜ 50% ➜ 25% ➜ Blinking ➜ SOS ➜ 100%........ 3) Push and hold the mode button for 2 seconds to power OFF the light.

Maintaining a waterproof seal (Before your dive)

1) The light uses two O-rings to maintain a waterproof seal. 2) Every time you open the battery cap make sure the O-rings and sealing surfaces are clean, undamaged and lubricated. 3) Dampen a clean cotton cloth and wipe it around the o-ring and o-ring contact surfaces to remove any hair, sand or debris. 4) Carefully inspect the o-ring for cuts, tears or other damage. Replace o-rings immediately if damaged. 5) Lube O-rings if dry. Apply a small amount of silicone lube on your finger tip and wipe it around the O-rings. Wipe off excess lubricant. The o-ring should appear wet.

Care and Maintenance (After your dive)

1) After each dive, soak the sealed light in fresh water for about 15 minutes to remove any residual salt, sand and dirt. Never allow the saltwater to dry on the light. 2) Push the mode button about 10 times to clean any saltwater or sand trapped under the button. 3) Let the water drain out of the two small holes located at the bottom of flexible arm (under the tray) 4) Dry off the light with a towel. Make sure you and the light are dry before opening the waterproof battery cap. 5) Remove batteries before storing the light. 6) Allow light to thoroughly dry before storage. 7) Never use any detergents, cleaners, solvents or chemicals to clean the light. 8) Insert a fresh Moisture-Muncher capsule (item #SL911) inside the battery compartment during storage to help keep the inside dry and free of corrosion or mildew during storage.
