New for 2023 from APEKS is the LUNA X with canister diving light, with a large volume lithium-ion battery that provides an average increase in light output compared to the LUNA ADV PRIMARY.
Outstanding features of LUNA X
Can be carried on an airplane
In the case of the LUNA ADV PRIMARY, a lithium-ion battery is built in the light, so it could not be carried on board an airplane. In Japan, if the battery is up to 160Wh = 43243mAh and can be separated from the light, up to two batteries can be carried as carry-on baggage.
Improvements in LUNA X
The connection method between the light body and the canister (battery) is insecure. The connection part is a screw like screw and has two O-rings. There is a possibility that it may come loose if there is a shock to the connection part underwater.
Comparison with LUNA ADV PRIMARY
Both are diving lights that can be utilized as primary lights.
