One year post purchase, I have used this light as a backup light in caves and a primary on several open water and night dives. It has a very tightly focused spot that is quite a bit whiter light than a normal halogen, and when compared side by side with a halogen SaberLite (both with new from the same package batteries), the Recoil LED appears to be brighter and projects its beam a significantly greater distance. Some of this is probably owed to light color, but the battery life is much better in the LED and the "bulb" is by its nature much longer lasting and dependable. Pelican's switch mechanism has benn 100% reliable in the 3 SaberLites I have owned(the only manufacturer that I can say this about). My halogen model (identical body and design) is 12 years old and has held up well for 400+ dives with several dives to 150+'.

The light gives a very nice and concentrated light spread. BUT I do not know why the manufacturer had put a pressure valve. Probably to release the pressure when turning the light on, but when turning it of, a under pressure becomes and the light easily leaks. Especially under the surface. Also if the valve is not maintained the valve can fasten and leak. I guess that's why it has leaked for many users including me. Because of that I will rarely use it for diving and will mostly have it as a spare and for land use. Waiting this days for the exchange light instead of the one that leaked. If used in water I will check the valve and blow with mouth inside to see if not leaking before diving. Pelican has made a good light with tech characteristics but not reliable for tech divers. For that reason they could have put a switch for turning on instead of the pressure valve.Also got the Princeton Tec, Impact XL which is less powerful but more reliable does the job and compact. 4 AA batteries are lighter then the 3C in the SibreLight. Still, I would have liked to have the SibreLight without the valve. Maybe with reliable switch too.For main light I have the UK eLED 8C which I'm very happy with.

Comments about Pelican SabreLite 2010 Recoil LED (35mm):
First dive with this light, it flooded at 15'. Company replaced it, no problem. Second dive (with replacement light), I turned the light on at the surface and dove to 20'. Light had already flooded.There's a real problem with Pelican's manufacturing capabilities if two brand new lights flood right out of the box. I've own a lot of lights in the 30+ years I've been diving. These flood faster than any I've seen.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The light leaked on my first dive trip. Pelican replaced it for free under the warranty.
Great light, just not underwater
In order to operate the light you must turn the head of the flashlight rather than a simple on/off switch. This would allow a slight void in the seal and water would seep into the battery compartment every time! BUY THE 2410 Recoil instead.
