Nice diverlight – New-208 Cree XR-E Q3 190lm 1-Mode White Light Diving Flashlight - Yellow (4 x AA) Reviews

Pros:
Relatively cheap well build and good designed diverlight with a narrow beap and a PMMA reflector wich gives a high efficiency Very sturdy and waterproof, reliable and lasts long on one bateryset (4X AA, rechargables can be used) Electronic currenctsource (step down) wich makes optimal use of the batterypower possible. Gives as much light as a 15-20 Watt bulblight. Takes about 1/2 Amp so 4-6 hours of operation can be expected. The throw is superbe, for underwateruse very fine that the reach is 20 meters (sais te info) not correct, it is MUCH more in clear water and less in situations where the water is not clear
Cons:
Has no modes, only on/off The change of batteries is a little difficult. The pill must be removed and after changing the batteries to be replaced. When you use force, the guiderails are not strong enough to prohibit this and the pill becomes stuck. It is very important to line out the pille and gently bring it inside, so do this careful with patience Take the time for it. The use of heavy high vapacity NiMH cells makes the light heavier than water, alkalines are just fine Not really cons but certainly point to take notice of.
Other:
Unbeatable price, very nice secondairy optics, watreproop , well performing, good design! Well done DX!!
Bottomline:
Also usable in difficult situations small and lightweigt. Buy it.
