Rating: Bright!
Reviewer: Karen Singleton  -  View all my reviews
LOVE this dive light! Much more lumens and directional control than any of the rentals I have used. I really wish I hadnt put off getting my own dive light for as long as I did! Also, if you travel without batteries (and buy them once you get to your dive destination), it doesnt add that much weight to your luggage!

Rating: Ive seen the light
Reviewer: Gerald Buurma
The Shockwave is awesome. It produces a clear, bright light that lasts for hours. I use it with an action cam mounted on the top. It allows me to point and shoot high resolution video in a balanced light with enough spectrum to bring out the natural colors. I havent used it at night but Ive been in a few caves that were dark enough to need supplemental light for crystal clear video. The Princeton Shockwave lasted about two hours exactly the same length of time as the batteries on my action video camera lasted.

Rating: Great product - Love it
Reviewer: Finau I.
This is a great product and the battery life lasted a long time. Using cheap batteries from China (granted most of our batteries are made in China) still last my brother (I bought the light as a gift)a whole month before switching the batteries. I have to order two more Princeton Tec Shockwave L.E.D. Light for his other friends. I order one as a fathers day gift for my husband and so far, hes a happy camper.

Rating: Shockwave LED, great light.
Reviewer: Steve B.  -  View all my reviews
I purchased this light knowing full well the spotty reviews it has received on the switch. I thought I would take a chance on it as the price was right. Upon receiving the light I was impressed with the quality. The first dive with the light was in very poor visibility (5-10 at times) and depth of 80. This light worked like a charm. To be honest, I dont know what the fuss is about the switch. Once I became familiar with its operation, there were no issues. It works great. I have about six dives with the light now (including a night dive) and no issues. I recommend this light.

Rating: Genuine Fish Burner !
Reviewer: Robert M D.
Out of the box, 2 night dives in Roatan, Honduras. Mainly used the low light setting which was plenty of night light and gives you extended battery life. Only minor complaint is on/off/lowbeam/hi-beam switch worked hard and required two hands adjustment. I couldnt just click between the beams with one hand on the light. Ditched a 4-D cell light in favor of this one with 4 C cells and LED light. Clearly an improvement in weight, ease of handling, and underwater light. She wants to replace her old style 4 D cell primary diving light as well, and were going to order another one of these for her. Good piece of equipment !

Rating: Performed well
Reviewer: David S.  -  View all my reviews
Took it out for a try after receiving it. Worked well,light was bright,not as heavy as I expected it to be.Would have liked the switch to be a little easier to use but not a big issue. Seems to be a good product for the price.

Rating: Princeton Tec Shockwave LED Dive Light
Reviewer: Barbara T.
Although expensive it is really well made and the color makes it easy to see even in poor visibility waters. Wrist strap is good size - not too big and not too small. Light has good power and it is not too heavy or bulky. Good purchase.

Rating: Turn " Night to Light"
Reviewer: william hanson
I am very satisfied with this light. Why did I get it? My light was an oceanic ocean pro. 25 years old, 6 volt battery, and just wore out. I was optimistic that such a compact light could deliver so many lumens, be so compact and work as described in the literature, delivered to my door in less than a week, with batteries included, free shipping. AND IT WORKED AT A 115 FOOT depth on two boat dives on the same day........... Love it, Bill

Rating: bright for less
Reviewer: john u.
Princeton Tec Shockwave is a bright though somewhat heavy (with 8 C cells) light that really lights up overhangs and reef walls. I would recommend it for anyone not concerned about the extra bulk and weight
