Mares Eos 3:
The beginning of a new era
• High-Power mono LED
• Consistent light intensity
• Long burn time
EOS 3 is the beginning of a new era in the field of torches! The EOS 3 is a powerful and compact diving torch with a High-Power 3 W mono LED, providing an incredible light output of 7.000lux, equivalent to a 30W halogen bulb and characterized by a focused 200mm diameter hot spot.
Color temperature of 6400°Kelvin.
Electronic voltage supply control of the LED ensures a consistent light for the entire rated burn time which is 5 hours with 8 standard AA batteries.
A careful choice of materials makes this a rugged, wear-resistant torch able to withstand depths up to 100 mt / 330ft.
It also features an anti-shock rubber protection on the anodized aluminium head and a tubular ergonomic handle with a magnetic sliding switch; the latter features ON and OFF positions with mechanical safety catch.
The compact dimensions allow you to store the EOS 3 in the BC pocket.
Length: 178mm; Width (head): 60mm; Width (tubular handle): 33mm. Adjustable strap.
You can’t get any more light from such a compact lamp! And the “goddess of the dawn” (Greek: Eos) is a real bargain as well. Read on to find out what else this Mares-developed lamp has to offer...
Mares strikes out on it’s own in terms of lamp construction, so you will never be left in the dark.
Eos 3 is the beginning of a new era, because this little powerhouse comes directly from our research and development department in Rapallo.
Eos 3 was intended to be powerful and compact.
And indeed, the high-power 3 W mono LED lets a lux meter measure up to a whooping 10,000 lux at a distance of one meter!
Translated into the power of a halogen bulb, this is equivalent to 30 watt!!! Unlike traditional technology, this light yield lasts because an electronic LED voltage control ensures a consistent light intensity throughout the entire 5 hours of burn-time.
So you won’t run out of light at the wrong time, Mares’ developers chose eight regular AA batteries (or rechargeable AA batteries) for this model.
Big output, small dimensions: Hard to believe that this much light can radiate from a 178 mm lamp!
And this fact comes in very handy on vacation and during the dive, because the Eos 3 can be easily stowed in the BC pocket.
The award-winning Mares design team (Red Dot Award 2010 for the X-Stream fin) has developed a torch body you won’t want to put down again.
The ergonomic handle results in effortless handling and intuitive actuating of the switch with the thumb.
The anodized torch head is encased in a rubber shock protection cap. By the way: The magnetic switch can be put into three different positions: locked, on, and off.
What else do you need besides an Eos 3? Nothing except darkness, caves, and crevices, so the “goddess of the dawn” can live up to its full potential!
