Review of FINNSUB BANG
Review is made by Poole Diving (UK) on September 20th 2019
So all of us have been playing with the Finnsub Bang, and even Kev can’t break it and has had more than one go at doing this!! So we now have them in stock, with the usual UK Internet Price Match promise.
We all love the soft handle and after a dive of playing find the operation under water is easily mastered.
So if you are really interested, come on a dive with us and borrow the school unit for a play!
It is a rechargeable dive light developing up to 1100 lumen in a wider 10° beam from the lithium-ion battery. Rather than use mechanical or magnetic switches, the Bang torch uses an accelerometer within the housing that is activated by tapping the light to turn it on/off and switch between the 30% and 100% output modes.
How do you prevent accidental switching on of the light when out of the water though? The Bang senses when it is out of the water and analyses taps and vibrations to minimise the possibility of accidental activation. If you want to test the light out of the water it just requires a more assertive tap so it knows that you are purposefully trying to turn it on, (Que Kev here).
The Accelerometer control is optimised for underwater use, with gloves and the dive light attached to the other hand via the supplied bracket.
The torch is switched on / off after 3 consecutive taps with a time span between each stroke of 0.3 to 0.8 seconds. If the rhythm is correct, the dive light blinks briefly after the second tap. Switching power levels is done after 2 consecutive taps with a time interval between each stroke of 0.3 to 0.8 sec. Tapping out of sequence or outside of the time delay and the Bang will ignore further taps for a couple of seconds to prevent accidental mode change or turning the light on or off.
