great and tiny backup torch – New-608 Cree XM-L T6 800lm 1-Mode White Light Diving Flashlight - Fluorescent Green (1 x 18650) Reviews

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

Pros:
Very small, very bright for its size, lightweight, bright yellow colour makes it visible also at depth.
Cons:
The plastic and metal bit of the head can unscrew from each other; no big deal as this doesn't influence the waterproofness; but a dab of glue would have been nice. The O-rings, while there are two, aren't of the best quality and by far not sufficiently lubed. They do seal tight though. Twisting of the head with gloves is tricky; but that comes with the size, so isn't really avoidable.
Other:
You'll need batteries and a charger; i had these given that i also own the P7 dive torch. This one compares to about the "medium" setting on that one in brightness. The beam isn't quite as focussed; but more than adequate.
Bottomline:
Great backup toch to carry around! highly recommended!
