AquaLight 9
AquaLight 9

This is my first attempt at creating a divelight. A design created by Ole Martin inspired me to create this dive light.

The light is powered by a custom build 9Ah 12V NiMH batterypack. This pack drives a Osram Decostar IRC 50 W 10° halogen bulb.

These drawings represent how the next version of the AquaLight 9 is going to look.Dive Light

The main differences between the current version and the new is the addition of the shroud at the front of the lighehead, and the use of a magnetic switch instead of the "old school" rubberboot covered switch.

Wiring diagram

The wiring diagram is quite simple, a MOSFET triggered by a reed switch. I choose this design because it removes the most vunerable part of at canister light - the rubber switch boot.


Bill of materials - almost complete, it's just missing a few parts.

STEP Files

In response to an inquiry I have released my models of the Nielsen Latch as STEP files so that others may benefit from them.
