Rating: LED Dive Torch with Strobelight
Reviewer: howard b., - View all my reviews
Tried it out on a night dive at the France Park Indiana fresh water quarry. The LED light was not strong enough to penetrate more than a few feet. Granted I was in a quarry with poor visiblity to start with but my back up halogen light was much more powerful. The strobe light worked great and that is what I really wanted in this light as it is part of my emergency signal kit for salt water night dives. I give this item 3 stars.

Respect the polarity of the batteries as shown in this manual and inside the torch.
Remove the batteries if the torch is left unused for long period or during transport, to avoid an accumulation of gas, especially when used with rechargeable batteries. Do not use the torch out of the water.
AFTER EVERY USE, CHECK THAT THE TORCH WAS TURNED OFF CORRECTLY AND THAT THE SAFETY IS ON.
Replace ALL the batteries when they are dead, to avoid damage or injury to the torch or people.
Use of expired batteries can significantly reduce the torch's burntime and performance.
A decrease in the intensity of light and/or a slight flicker in the beam indicate that the batteries have nearly lost their charge. They should be replaced immediately.
Rinse the outside of the torch in fresh water after every dive, without disassembling it.
Keep the torch in a cool, dry place. The temperature must never exceed 50°C.
