    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    nice, small and reliable divers-flashlight wich is also handy for common use.
    This diverslight has 2 brightness modes and one strobe, wich is for signing that you are in trouble very handy.
    The low mode is less than half (about 20% estimated) and gives a still usable amount of light for a long period of time, at full power the 2200mAH 18650 battery lasts for less than one hour but that amount of light is often not needed

    Cons:

    Another divinglight from DX has a PMMA optic wich gives much more throw and almost no spill but this one is with about 800 lumens (high mode) much brighter but in not clear water the spill can overshine the throwed light what can be a disadvantage in specticular situations.

    OtherThoughts:

    For all what you get (charger, divinglight , battery and velcron tape)this is a real bargain.
    It is possible that a PMMA does not allow cooling enough to operate the cree t6(0) at full power, this light uses the reflector ithselve as extended cooling, what makes that the t6 will not become overheated.
    Some tests I did with t6 on a star (batwing) and only cooling from behind and a reflector wich recoils the energy partly on the t6 did demolish the t6 very fast, so it is from utmost importance to keep the (own created) heat from the cree away, this led can barely be cooled with a star and other cooling, backfired heat will kill the t6
    faster than you can say the alphabeth!!
    I was so stupid to make that mistake two times.

    Bottomline:

    NNice, small optimised led DIVERSflashlight.
    It will be difficult to find something better certainly
    for the costs of it.
    Because it is completely weatherproof you can use it anywhere.
    Take a second charged battery with you, at full power you have about 3/4 of an hour.
