The D-1001 aims to elim­i­nate the need for bat­ter­ies by us­ing an en­ergy cell that turns the ocean it­self into a power source. Rated to 100 me­ters and billed to pro­vide up to 2,000 hours of ser­vice, it’s a bit hefty (about 11 inches long and nearly 2 pounds, though neu­tral in wa­ter). We’ve not yet tested, or frankly, fig­ured out how to test, its lu­men out­put, but on our night dives, we found the mod­est 9-de­gree LED beam bright enough to be ad­e­quate, and its op­er­a­tion to be per­fectly straight­for­ward. In any case, the D-1001’s big ap­peal is the eco-friendly con­ve­nience of bat­tery-free diving.
