L&M is not a large company, and is made up of around 50 full-time
employees, all working under one roof. This gives L&M the ability to
be flexible in an ever-changing market. “We can update products and
innovate much quicker than our competitors,” explains Jacob. “We can
update to a more efficient LED, reprogram our lights or redesign a
mold to improve assembly workflow. Most businesses would have to
wait out an entire season before they could make changes like that”.

It’s advantages like these that keep L&M competitive in the market.
The feel-good factor of buying local can only get you so far in a market
where consumers are becoming increasingly comfortable buying Asian
made products, whether it’s a $100 light or a $6,000 mountain bike.
Like every other brand, L&M has had to innovate to stay ahead of the
curve.

The Sola Tech 600 gets its name from the certified 600 lumens it delivers at full power, with the facility to reduce this to 300 or 150 lumens and extend the duration further. In fact the burntimes are where this lamp really scores.
The manufacturer’s stated duration at full power is a huge three hours, increasing to a mind-boggling 12 hours at the lowest setting. That’s serious stamina not seen in such a bright compact package before, and perfect for long-duration cave or decompression diving.
The factory-sealed two-cell lithium-ion battery is charged through external gold-plated ports to negate corrosion. It’s housed inside the lamp’s impact-resistant resin body, and is said to be good for 500 charge cycles.
The control switch is a twist-lock magnetic slider which, when pushed either forward or back, will activate the torch. Further pushes will increase the power sequentially.
Three tiny LEDs above the switch indicate the settings, one for quarter-power and so on. They also double up for indicating the battery status, changing from green through yellow and red before blinking red to inform the user that there’s little charge left.
Lastly, there’s the facility to set the lamp blinking an “SOS” Morse code signal. This is claimed to flash away for 30 hours on a fully charged battery set. All this in a package tested and depth-rated to 90m.

25 years ago, our dive lights were primitive by todays standards. The output was weak and had limited burn time. It wasn't uncommon for the halogen bulb to burn out during the dive. Then came canister lights with HID bulbs that offered greater output and burn time, but they had a cable that I always seemed to find a way to tangle on something. Plus the HID bulb was fragile.

I recently discovered the Light and Motion SOLA Tech 600 light that has addressed all the concerns I had with previous underwater lights. The Tech 600 is a small, durable, and versatile package. The hand mount design works great and frees your hands for moving through wrecks. The rechargeable feature is very convenient and is easy to set up. The controls are intuitive, smooth, and easy to operate. The sealed unit with magnetic switch assures a leak-proof light with little maintenance. The 3 stage output, with emergency flash feature, provides outstanding light and versatility. This is the primary dive light I've been waiting for. Great job L&M.

By John Chatterton

I remember a day when my old Darrell Allan light was the wreck diving standard. It was not bright at all, but you could also use it as a hammer. It was a big can that used like 10 alkaline batteries, and sometimes the bulb would fall out of the socket in the middle of a dive. It was the Prince of Darkness. That was then, and this is now!!!!!

Modern lights are specifically designed for different uses. I do not use the same light for everything, and I often carry more than one, but my Primary Light is going to have to be the best all around light for the diving I am doing. It has to be rugged, have decent burn time, and it needs to be bright.

My favorite Primary light is the new Sola Tech 600 by Light and Motion. It is bright, but with lots of brightness options, and plenty of burn time, depending on the brightness selections. It has a very cool hand mount harness that means I can use both my hands while using my light, so I can easily use a reel with this handle, amongst other things. It also means I point the light intuitively with my hand. The rechargeable light comes with a smart charger, and an operating manual, which takes like 2 minutes to read. It is very intuitive, capable, reliable, and rugged. It is lots of light, in a surprisingly compact package.

There are several Sola models, but for me, the Tech 600 is the best balance of Burn Time vs.Brightness..I predict this is a design that will be copied by a lot of other manufacturers. I love the Sola.

I wonder where my old Darrell Allan light is these days???

When I first picked up the Sola™ Tech 600 I wondered about the effectiveness and practicality of depending on such a small light as my primary tech light. With 600 Lumens on the highest setting, and weighing just under 12 oz., this light is a contender!

I have had several dive lights over the years. One flooded because it was bulky, not hands free and hard to turn on at depth. I lost another bright, hands-free light when I dive-bombed a deep wreck. It’s bulk made it difficult to secure it, and the light dropped over 230 feet to the ocean floor where it now rests, somewhere off the bow of the Kormu.

A few other dive lights sit in my scuba closet; while bright, they use batteries and their size makes them a challenge to use while diving. I run out of real estate on my arms quickly (I have short arms) with two dive computers and a wrist slate. Somehow I must also work a light, run a reel, switch gases, and shoot a lift bag. My primary tech light must be streamlined, light and compact.

So what makes the Sola™ Tech 600 different?

Wearability and Comfort:

The hands free wrist straps are comfortable, light-weight, and feel secure. The adjustable hand strap is easy to wear with and without gloves.

Battery Life and Recharging:

I love that the Sola™ Tech 600 is rechargeable, which saves both money and the environment. A full charge lasts an entire day of diving. The battery recharges completely in just 150 minutes.

No cords:


Other primary powerful dive lights use a corded battery canister. The last thing I need is another hose or cord to tangle up. The only real reason to use a good canister light is if you require longer battery life and power. I find the Sola™ Tech 600 is filling all my tech primary light needs.

Ease of operation:

• Turning the light on requires only sliding a switch forward or back. The magnetic sliding switch sits on top of the light’s body; the switch is in the middle of the slide, which means no snag points.
• Sliding the switch forward will cycle the light through three brightness modes (low 150 lumens, medium 300 lumens, high 600 lumens); tapping back quickly switches between a spot beam and a flood beam.
• Turning off the light requires simply sliding and holding the switch in either direction for 2 seconds.
• You can lock the switch into position by turning the switch 90 degrees to avoid accidentally blinding your divemaster or turning on in your gear bag.

Other findings:


What has really surprised me about the Sola™ Tech 600 is how much I actually used it during the day, and even on recreational dives. I see corals and fish more vividly; colors at depth pop! Its lightweight, hands-free and easy-to-use design makes it my first choice for a primary tech light.
