Yesterday I visited the Apeks Marine factory in Blackburn, UK and met with Peter Greenwell the sales manager for a tour to see how Apeks regulators are made – wow! what a factory! I am sure most divers do not realise just how much goes into that piece of live sustaining equipment – thanks Peter. We shall be sharing some photos of the tour on our website soon.
The Drylite from Tryton Exploration Gear is a completely sealed torch unit so no risk of flooding!
Nicely presented in a plastic carry case it comes complete with mains or car charger adapters to power the wireless induction base station.
The 135 Lumens 3W LED cuts through the water with an 8 degree 5000K beam.
