POMONA, Calif., May 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- IST Sports Corp., manufacturer and global supplier of a complete line of scuba and diving gear, today announced the newest product in their highly specialized, premier line of Dolphin Tech diving equipment.  The Dolphin Tech 2000 (T-24040) is a technical-style dive light kit that delivers a powerful 50 degree 2000 lumens beam, ideal for wrecks or reefs.  It's the winner of the 2014 ScubaLab Tester's Choice and Best Buy Award.

IST’s Dolphin Tech 2000 is a tech-bright, award-winning hybrid.

In the research and development pipeline for the last year, the Dolphin Tech 2000 is the result of a collaboration with Watershot Inc., the renowned underwater cameras, housing and lighting equipment manufacturer whose products are recognized as the go-to gear for professional underwater film shooting worldwide.         

ScubaLab raves about this light:  "Careful where you shine this light when night diving, or you'll quickly become unpopular. It's blazing, with a hot-spot meter reading higher than any others in our test."  Divers can select between three power settings for normal use, or a strobe function for emergencies. The compact light head uses a pair of powerful LEDs, and is powered on and off with a unique, single push-button switch which also indicates three different battery status color alerts:  green when battery is fully charged, yellow when half full and red when in need of charging.

More features include a hand-mounted holster kit which keeps the light head securely in place, leaving the fingers free for other tasks. Two rechargeable lithium-ion battery packs are available, with ratings to 490 feet. The smaller 4-cell battery delivers almost 2 hours of use on high, and 7 and-a-half-hours on low. The 8-cell battery burns twice as long.

The T-24040 is from Dolphin Tech, IST's most recent corporate commitment to technical as well as commercial diving gear.  With a product-rich line-up of gear including BCDs, torches, computers, valves, hoses accessories and more, Dolphin Tech is the culmination of nearly 40 years of dive gear product evolution by IST.
