Can I adjust the brightness of the Kayalite?
During our engineering of the Kayalite, we tested at sea in varying conditions, with the objective of incorporating a light that provided optimal performance while meeting U. S. Coast Guard regulations for lighting of a kayaks, canoes and any USCG-defined "vessel under oars" under USCG Rule 25.
We generally recommend against increasing the brightness of a Kayalite, because higher intensities can impair the night vision of other boaters and paddlers — particularly those accompanying you.
For applications where reduced or greater intensity is required, we offer 1-LED, 2-LED and 4 LED modules in our catalog. Our factory standard part on all Kayalite, WaterTorch, Navlite and handheld R25 Electric Torch lighting products is a 2-LED module.
