Scuba Mini U-Beam 5 L.E.D. Light
Rating: Scuba-Mini-U-Beam-5-L.E.D.-Dive-Light. well built 11/21/2008

This light is a well built flashlight. It is very durable and bright. But the twist on switch is a bit tight even after I applied some silicone grease. If you are lokking for a reliable back up light you better get the UK mini Q40 eled.

Scuba Mini U-Beam 5 L.E.D. Light
Rating: Scuba-Mini-U-Beam-5-L.E.D.-Dive-Light. BRIGHT LIGHT! 11/21/2008

It is one of the brightest light in the market.It is brighter than the old c8 eled. The only thing I did not like about this new model is, it only takes about four hours for the battery to get discharged.The old model takes about six hours to get discharged. I guess that is the trade off from being brighter than the previous model. If I have to choose between the two, I would prefer the old design because it gives you almost the same brightness until batteries get discharged, which is missing on the new model. But I still gave it a four star because of the quality.
