Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
The Ikelite DS160 Underwater Substrobe with Battery Pack and Smart Charger combines power with wide angle coverage to give you the most bang for your buck. The quality of light is exceptional due to a round flash tube and custom powder coated reflector designed specifically to deliver the softest, most even coverage possible. When combined with a compatible Ikelite TTL system or film TTL system, the DS161 automatically adjusts brightness to provide perfect exposure whether you're shooting macro, portrait or wide angle.
Instead of a simple focus light, the DS161 includes a super even, 500 lumen video light. The light is suitable for close-up, macro, portrait, and wide angle fill-in work or as a focus assist light. Output is adjustable in 10 brightness settings plus an SOS mode for emergency situations. Automatic shut-off when the flash fires ensures that the video light will have no undesired effects on still photos.
State of the art Li-ion battery technology produces over 450 full power flashes at an unprecedented 1.4 second recycle time. Our proprietary quick-release toggle system attaches the battery pack with ease and confidence, making a flooded battery virtually impossible. The size of the DS161 is uniquely balanced to its weight to provide near neutral buoyancy in salt water.
The included Smart Charger product no. 4067.1 accepts variable voltage in the 100-240V range and includes AC adapters for US, Europe, UK and Australia. This charger is compatible with lithium ion battery packs only. The rechargeable battery pack is interchangeable for quick turnaround in between dives. Existing 4066.5 NiMH and 4066 NiCad batteries are forward-compatible with new strobes. Older 4066.1 Smart Chargers may not be used with the current 4067 Li-Ion Battery Pack.

Benefit from TTL flash exposure when you combine the strobe with a compatible Ikelite TTL system or film TTL system. The DS160 automatically adjusts brightness for ideal exposure, whether you are capturing macro, portrait, or wide-angle shots
A bright, concentrated LED aiming light provides ample illumination for use as a focusing aid or a nighttime dive light. The LED turns off and on when the strobe is fired, keeping your photos free of bright spots
The charger utilizes pulse charge technology, allowing for near-complete charging while also conditioning cells over time - for longer battery life and more flashes per charge. Trickle charge mode helps maintain battery's charge without danger of overcharging or overheating
