Hi, what are the dimensions? I am looking for a compact back up light for penetration dives. Is this compact enough to fit in a VCR pocket or would you recommend another one?
KEITH G Its about 6" long and 3" wide. I've used it several times while spearfishing in rocks. It has held up well and is reliable; all while I haven't exactly taken great care of it. My only complaint is that its not very bright.
LARRY C Hi, Paul,
My Princeton Tec is six inches long and 8-1/2 inches around at its widest part. When I had a jacket-style BCD, if fit nicely in one pocket. I've bought these over the years for my wife and myself, and they generate plenty of light underwater.
DIANE B my answer was cut off; sorry....the light is bigger than it looks in the photo. It measures 6 inches long and 2 1/4 inches wide. It is 444 grams (or nearly 1 lb). It fits in my BC pocket when I use it for a backup for night dives. My husband uses his for illuminating crevices when we lobster hunt and he just tucks it into his BC belt with the lanyard wrapped around the BC D ring. I'm glad I have it. It's durable too.
GEORGE D Its a great light, but not really compact. I like the Ikelight PCa great little light, I carry it as a backup but use it as a primary in some tropical locales.
DIANE B all in all, it's a great light and we've been happy with it.
MIKE C I am not sure what a VCR pocket is. But you can judge the size by imagining 4 C cells in the body. It is about like an average home flashlight (not mini at all). I use it for backup now. The light is quite narrow and yellowish. When taking video, as I set my white balance at depth, it comes out like a red light saber. I now use a large LED light for primary. Hope this helps.
