  • Waterproof flashlight, suitable for submerging in water

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    Nice compact flashlight.
    Relatively cheap for an xm-L T6 diving light.
    Tough and robust.

    Cons:

    Strap attachment will not last very long
    Location of the switch in the tailcap won't allow you to press the switch while wearing the strap around your wrist.
    No slow strobe, only SOS
    Rubber rings instead of silicone

    OtherThoughts:

    There's no specification to which depth the light can be used under water. Probably suitable when not diving too deep. Greater depths will probably result in the switch being operated by the pressure. The modes aren't as specified. I was expecting a slow strobe (suitable for marking an object under water) but instead the fifth mode is an SOS.
    Also the beam doesn't last for 350 metres as specified, but it easily does 100 metres

    Bottomline:

    Cheap flashlight, not suitable for diving or single handed operation while connected to your wrist with the strap. The ring with which the strap was connected only lasted for about half a day. If you're looking for a cheap usable diving flashlight I would recommend the SKU 121727.
