If there are depths to be explored or monsoon season travel to be done, LIGHT & MOTION is an unapologetic entry into the handheld lighting category. Outdoor fans: Here’s your chance to experience the “life aquatic” with a light that goes deep and shines bright. Promoted by the company as “the everything light,” GoBe proved worthy both on land and sea with spot and red light variations.Built around interchangeable components, GoBe eclipsed the ingenuity of most recent new product entries with handles and heads rated down to 120m. Whether handheld or bar mounted, the two models under test (GoBe 500 Spot Light and GoBe + Spot Light) excelled in the grip, balance, and easy operation categories.

Secure tail cap USB charging along with high visibility battery status indicators kept users confident in GoBe’s ability to grab and manage power during heavy use. Unlike most flashlights, bike lights, and dive lights, GoBe came with an uncanny sense of design, bordering on toy-like in the most positive sense of the term. By eliminating concerns around performance at depth, in-hand durability or convenience on a bike, GoBe knocked down the barriers to full-on exploration. Given the company’s reputation for standing by their products, today is GO TIME with GoBe.

Light & Motion’s GoBe light has become a popular option for divers since it’s launch in fall 2013. The stylish compact design stands out from other lights on the dive boat while performance is what you would expect from Light & Motion (manufacturers of Sola lights).

I have been demoing a GoBe 2.2 Ah body with 500 wide, 500 spot, red focus light and Nightsea lightheads the past couple weeks on several different housing / camera combos. Below are my impressions from the dives.


The GoBe Light

The GoBe has many benefits. Aside from being affordable, is it very lightweight and can be used as a dive light, focus light, red focus light, fluoro diving light, bicycle light and countless other topside activities. The fact that you can change lightheads (above water) makes it a great light for newer divers/photographers who will slowly add more heads and also for more seasoned divers/photographers wanting light for a specific application.

The lightheads themselves are very easy to change as long as you keep an eye on the o-rings (as underwater photographers we know this well)!

The power button is very easy to depress, which is great because it doesn’t move when mounted on a housing and pushing with one finger. Battery power level indicator is a must, especially for those who night dive frequently.


Highlights:

2 bodies available (2.2 Ah and 3.0 Ah Li-Ion)
The 3.0 AH has a longer burn time for the 700 lumen and 500 search lightheads

6 different lightheads

Available in several kits based on intended use

5 power modes: High, Medium, Low, Extended, SOS

Easy-to-push power button with power level indicator

Various mounting options

Only 160 grams

USB rechargeable li-ion battery

Conclusion:

The GoBe light system is a versatile light and a great option for divers who want a compact, lightweight light at a nice price point.

For gear enthusiasts, there's a fine line between staying updated on what's new and cluttering your precious storage space. The GoBe light system from Monterrey, California-based Light & Motion presents a multi-functional light system with a fraction of the gear. A single platform weighing in at just 160 grams is compatible with six different light heads, all featuring different lumen capabilities, angular movement and purposes. The light is waterproof and submergible up to 120 meters, making this a must-have for scuba divers. The NightSea light head emits a specially developed blue light, with the wavelengths optimally designed to illuminate the wonders of the deep. Flick a switch and the light switches back to a standard white light spotlight.


On dry land the GoBe offers both spotlights and wide-angle beams in varying degrees of luminosity. A bar mount easily attaches the lightweight system to your bike for safe, well-lit riding. The wide angle beam is perfect for lighting up a single track trail if you're going for a pre-work session or doing a bit of adventure touring. The bar mount is also useful for—well, just about anything. The wide-angle light is ideal for lighting up a campsite—just attach the bar mount to a tree branch and you'll be set up in no time. Battery life varies with light head, but the maximum light life is purportedly 54 hours. When it's time for a re-up on juice, simply plug in the USB rechargeable lithium ion battery. With a commitment to user experience and safety (especially where underwater use is concerned), Light & Motion conducts extensive battery and luminosity research to ensure accurate light times.

From deep under the sea to the highest mountaintops, a flashlight system that lightens your load and surroundings
