I use this product when diving in the Pacific North West, Hawaii and fresh water lakes around the world. This light is super bright, compact and durable. I own three of these little guys and let me tell you, they fit well in my Zeagle BC and I take them everywhere. I haven't had any problems yet -- knock on wood! Thanks for a great product.

When I first received my little Blast, I was impressed. It is bright and very small. I carried it on a D-ring on every dive. It was great for when I just needed a little light to look in a hole or something. I found that I would go to use it once in a while and it would be dead. Didn't know it, but it was accidentally turning on when I shifted my gear in my bag. Also, because it's a twist-on-type of light, the o-ring develops a leak after a period of time. If they redesign it, I'll buy another. But it lasted about 6 months for me.

Decent to play around with

Pros

  • Compact

Cons

  • Breaks Easily
  • Drains Batteries
  • Not Waterproof

Best Uses

  • Close-Up Viewing

Comments about Princeton Tec, Blast Flashlight:

Bought several of these lights to have to play around with for a night snorkel. The lights are compact and lightweight. However they are not waterproof they are more water resistant. We also took these on a dive with a max depth of about 50 feet. After the dive the insides of the lights had some small amounts of water causing them to turn on and caused the battery connections to corrode. They were really only good for a few uses I would recommend them for snorkeling to be able to see better into a hole or crevice, but not diving, not reliable enough to be a back up light. We also took them apart after each snorkel/dive to allow them to dry out and that seemed to help a little with their longevity. If you are looking for a light to take in the water, and aren't going to use it for any serious safety related matters it is a good value for the money.

      Comments about Princeton Tec, Blast Flashlight:

      Unfortunately, this small brite light can not be depended upon due to the very unpredictable bulb life. I've purchased more that a dozen bulbs for my lights. I've had bulbs fail as quickly as just seconds from installing, and [$] it get's costly. I've contacted and talked with the manf., Princeton Tech and they are aware of the problem, but state that this light should not be used as a serious light for serious conditions. Good key chain ligh - that's it.

      This is a very nice light out of water

      • Night Diving

      Comments about Princeton Tec, Blast Flashlight:

      I have taken this light about 5 times it does not seal very good. I would turn light on before getting it wet and still would have moisture inside. If you forgot to remove the batteries after every dive to dry it would never work again. I bought 4 of these and I have gone through 3. The light last for about 2 hours.When the battery gets weak it will die right away almost no dimming to this light. From full to none.It is not very safe if you are in a bad spot and this is your backup.
