A good light for the money. Has dual filament bulb versus dual bulbs. That gives some redundancy, if one filament burns out, but not if the bulb itself is damaged/broken from environmental stresses (water, shock). The batteries last about what I would expect. It's good for recreational diving. But, it pales when compared to canister lights (which cost hundreds of dollars).

This light works great...until the trigger mechanism breaks. This is the second light I have bought and the first one worked until the plastic switch broke on the inside. I also know that this is happened to my dive buddy with the exact same light. I do have to say that I got about 100 night dives out of the light before it broke, so it did get some fair amount of use. Only recommend it b/c it is not that expensive of a light.

      Bought this light for my wife to use in Bonaire on some night dives and she seemed to really like it. It has a bright focused beam and really lit things up well for us.

      Was meaning to use for primary torch in a wreck dive, however it is too bulky and provides only the same light as the Pelican Nemo 2400 Flashlight.

          Comments about Princeton Tec, Miniwave II Dive Light:

          I needed a replacement primary torch for a liveaboard trip and this light is small, light and gives a nice beam. The dual intensity bulb is welcomed however the switch to activate it is difficult with gloves on. The switch more readily goes to activate the bright beam.

            Questions about this item:

            Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
            PATRICK M  I choose it probably for price and what I thought was a good design, which it ended up not being. After about 10 dives the trigger mechanism malfunctioned and the lamp could not be turned on or off. I ended up having to install and remove the batteries every time I wanted to use the light. I would not recommend it.
            Shopper  What is the beam angle for the miniwave ?
            ROBERT S  I actually don't know the angle and can't exactly measure it for you. However, I am totally satisfied with this light on a recent liveaboard trip with daily night dives.
            Shopper  How do I open the miniwave ii to change the C batteries?
            LeisurePro S  Unscrew the rubber bezel
