Is this a good product to use to attach to yourself so others will recognize you in a night dive?
Yes. This is a good product to use in a night dive. It makes very easy to indentify divers at night and permits a much more relaxed night diving. You can just concentrate in observing the sea life without any worries, as the green light will allow you to know immediatly where the rest of the divers are. It is very easy to attach to the tank and does not interfere with your dive at all. The light lasts for about 45 minutes to an hour - enough for the entire dive. I would use it again in a night dive.
Here is a true story. In Jan 2012 I was diving at Bonaire with friend of mine.
One of the dives we make was a night dive at location calls Karpata. We start approximately at 7:30 pm.
It was nobody around 10 miles. We use this lightsticks to mark entrance point on the shore. If you have ever dived at Bonaire you will know that is really important. We attached them to our tanks. And also, because it’s a shore dives on the wall under water before actually go for a wall we left two of them on the approximately 10 feet from each other on the 30 feet depth to have straight line towards to shore.
We spend 45 minutes under water at 70 -80 feet going north parallel shore line. At day time visibility on this site was not more then 35-40 feet. On our way back I was really surprised to see those lightsticks which we left underwater from 60-70 feet maybe even more. They were really bright. Same deal with markers we left on the shore. Served us good. We found our way back really easy. And of course we saw lightsticks on the body tank all the time very clear. It is a product. I hope I answered your question.
Yes at night it works good, it's best if it is attached to your tank valve
Yes. These types of disposable lights work well on night dives. As an instructor, I use a different color for myself, but all the students have one of these strapped to the back of their tanks.
Absolutely! We always attach these to our tank during any night dive. Convenient, easy to use and very affordable.
Absolutely.... dove off Cozumel with this very color attached by included tie line. Very good visability, I tie it on my first stage.... then it dosen't get your line of sight. Cuba Pete
Yes. Easy to use and reliable..
That is exactly what I use mine for.
