【ツ】Wurkkos DL30 Sales Thread [available on AliExpress + Amazon]

Hello my fellow flashomaniacs,

Mark Lee (Wurkkos) presents another new diving flashlight. This time, it's probably something for those among us who like to keep things simple (KISS-principle). Mark was a little worried that a light like this may not catch much interest on BLF. However, I hope to prove him wrong as I expect there's always a purpose for a supersimple, water-resistant "no frills" flashlight even for people who are addicted to full-featured Andúril lights.

 

Wurkkos is so kind to offer a nice promo discount for BLF members Smile

 

Specifications

  • Emitter: 3x Samsung LH351D 5.000K 90CRI
  • Reflector: smooth reflector
  • Operating voltage: 3.0V – 4.35V
  • Battery options: 1x 21700 or 1x 18650 Li-Ion battery
  • Dimension: 118mm (length) x 41mm (head diameter)
  • Weight: 130g/0.28lb (without battery)
  • Flashlight body: Aerospace grade 6061 grade aluminum alloy, CNC manufactured to hard-anodized to military grade specification type III, anti-abrasive finish to get solid built body, anti-crash geometry and better heat exchange.
  • Toughened mineral glass lens
  • Water resistance i.a.w. IPX-8
  • Reverse polarity protection to protect against improper battery installation.
  • Advanced Temperature Regulation (ATR) technology: ATR automatically reduces the brightness level when the driver temperature reaches 55°C to prevent overheating
  • Low voltage warning: When the battery voltage is low, the LEDs will start to flash quickly once every minute as a reminder to replace the battery. Please replace the battery in time to avoid any danger while diving.

 

 

 

As of 06/2021:

If you have any questions or comments, no matter if commercial or technical, please contact Wurkkos directly. Thank you for your understanding.

Thank you this looks good Wurkkos is making some nice lights.

And simple is VERY good. Mag switch and 3 levels – what else is really needed 95% of the time.

I have a Sofirn SD05 on order because mag and simple but this would have fit the bill even better I think.

Very nice Wurkkos. I really light the simple UI design. I have the Sofirn SD05 and this one has a similar magnetic control ring. I got the Wurrkos FC11 and WK30 and they have been excellent lights for the price. I end up gifted them to family members and they quite like it. Big Smile

Diving lights should be simple and foolproof. You’re underwater and accidentally hit strobe, and 100s of cuttlefish will swarm you trying to have sex with you and you’ll drownd.

If the ring allowed variable output adjustment from 1 lumen to 3600 lumens, I’d be interested. 3 modes, lowest 350 lumes? Nah, not for me.

It’s a Diving Light. If you looking for ring adjustable light here you go : HDS Rotary

https://www.hdssystems.com/Products/Rotary/

You want moonlight or 1 lumen mode under the water? Facepalm Big Smile

Plus, HDS Rotary max out put is 250 Lumen. And It’s $295.

Wellp, if you really need a fully adjustable diving light, and can still get any, there’s always the DV-S9.

There is one problem with infinitely variable lights, magnetic ring or firmware. Consistency. If I get a run time at a certain output, it’s next to impossible to replicate that output and get the run time needed. Well you probably could but, it’s going to require more equipment than just a flashlight and a battery. Playing with our lights out in the back yard or around the house is one thing. Being underwater, with a limited supply of air, I would want to know exactly how much light I have left at a easy to access brightness level. That same light could be used for any activity that required you to know to the second, what you got. And I’m not carrying around extra crap just for a little light.

HDS are nice lights. Built to last and built to a standard that won’t be sacrificed for any reason. Good, bet your life on, type lights.

Variable brightness hobby lights aren’t really my thing. I have a few but they don’t get much pocket time. I also don’t have variable length knives or variable round count pistol magazines. Big Smile

Consistency is good.

Looking good! There’s definitely a place for simple, easy to use lights in and out of the water.

Just wondering though, is 350lm a good low level for divers? I can imagine there might be times when a lower level might be needed when closely inspecting items.

Also, any info on the driver?

Simple, solid and nice design, hard not to like this light.   I'm in for at least one to be friends with my WK30.

I was told the driver is FET direct drive. I agree that 350lm could be a bit lower for using as a low mode in some situations. I asked if it's possible to keep it lower than this. Maybe they can offer four instead of three selectable modes in the future. Maybe this will be an improvement for the next batch, we will see. Smile

I do not know any prices yet but I expect DL30 to be in a very reasonable budget range. As usual, I try my best to get us a nice discount. Wink

I will want one of these. The Sofirn SD05 is one of my favorite lights.

I’m very interested. Makes for a good companion to the SD05 & the SD03. And I just can’t pass up Sammy’s 5k tint.

I like the mode spacing. 350 (Low) won’t be a problem. It may not go much deep, but it’ll be good on those moonless nights I go grave digging!

Definitely interested. It would be nice to see one additional mode that is lower than 100 lumens or so, but still interested regardless.

Someone should re-evaluate the price. The SD05 is less than half the cost, and although has an XHP50.2 emitter (which I got at 5000ºK), is basically the same light.

I was hoping that it would come in under $35. Its too close to the DL40 in price, and too much more than the SD05

It feels like the price is too high for the category of light this falls into. $30-35 seems more appropriate before any discount.
