  • Brilliant Illumination
  • Small (76mm / 3 in. diameter) Size, mountable almost anywhere
  • Low-Voltage Use
  • Ability to be customized with various options to make it perfect for almost any application
  • All Snooperette lamps operate well on AC or DC

What You'll Need:

  • The Snooperette light itself (which includes your choice of lamp and lens)
  • A Mount is not actually necessary for operation but is usually quite helpful. Not included & must be ordered separately. See specifications below for details.
  • The Power Cable Assembly (Model CEF2S16-xxx, where "-xxx" is the length in feet). Not included & must be ordered separately. Power cable assembly includes standard cable connector, stainless steel cable locking sleeve (63A-003) and heavy-duty Hubbell plug installed, on 16/2 Aquaprene SO cable. (Note: the plug is not included on lengths shorter than 20 feet.) The Power Cable Assembly is available in unbroken lengths up to 1,000 feet. Cables are made to your order, so you can get any cable length that you wish. Special configurations and/or cable jacket materials are also available.

Note: Due to electrical resistance inherent in any power cable, voltage line loss will occur over long cable lengths. This causes a marked decrease in light output in low-voltage lights. Available is the BIRNS VTX, which automatically compensates for cable line loss over any length of any type of cable. The VTX also incorporates a ground-fault circuit interrupter and a dual-line circuit breaker for the ultimate in diver safety and product performance.

The Birns Snooperette Model 5672 is the world's most durable and versatile small general-purpose underwater light. Proven by experience, the Snooperette was developed in the mid-1970's and, apart from periodic upgrades, remains essentially unchanged from the original, superb style. Many Snooperettes in the field from the 1970's are still in use!

The Model 5672 low-voltage Snooperette-Lite is small (3 in. diameter), and versatile, and is used by divers, on cameras, ROV's, etc. It can be mounted on a helmet, hand-held, or yoke-mounted, with choice of 25 to 360-watt lamp, and six different lens options. It's an excellent light for general-purpose illumination, and is also very good for color or black and white filming and videotaping. Instant ON/OFF and hot-restrike capability.

Model 5672 uses detachable cable assembly CEF2S16-x ('-x' is the desired length in feet). Cable is not included and must be ordered separately. Optional cable locking sleeves are available in 316 SS (63A-003) or plastic (63A-004). Model 5672 includes your choice of lamp and lens.
