About Princeton Tec, Shockwave II Dive Light

Shockwave II
The Shockwave II allows you to power up from 7.5 watts to 15 watts of power with the flip of a switch. The economical 7.5-watt output mode burns for up to 10 hours and provides plenty of light for most diving conditions. For those pitch black nights, wreck diving and dark crevices, simply flip the switch to the screaming bright 15-watt output mode for 4 hours of burn time.

This unique system also offers the added security of switching to an alternate bulb filament in the event the filament in use burns out.

I found this light inside a wreck about a month ago. Somebody must have dropped it, but I found it with a coating of silt, must have been in the wreck at 85' from between a week to a month. Image my surprise when I turned on the switch and it worked perfectly, in fact I'm still using the same batteries I found it with after 2 more wreck dives. It's now my primary light. Its relatively lightweight for a primary and the battery life is good. The illumination is not bad given the size/weight of the light. Its very waterproof and has an excellent switch design.

This is a good light for some just needing a light for looking around. Im personally a spearfisherman and found this to be a bit bulky and heavy for my type of diving. I use in with the coil lanyard and usually get to the bottom and try to find only to realize it has came out of my pocket and is dragging along. For me to use it to spot fish and shoot them is nearly impossible. I have to hold the light with one hand and rest the gun across the bottom cause the combined weight of the speargun and light is too much to fire into caves. the size of this is just too much for someone that need sto be streamlined in the water. If I could put this power output into a smaller package it would be the perfect light.

If your needing a light for a good price just to look at the pretty fish and cave dive. i would buy this in a heart beat. The 2 output setting are great on them merky days or when the sunlight is just starting to fade.

          Good light at a good price. Considering this light is quite inexpensive, it provides a good beam and seems quite durable.

          If you are after something to turn night into day you might want to pay a bit more.

              Questions about this item:

              Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
              WILLIAM D  This would be a very good for night dives and would last for many years
              Fred B  I've been told that turning the light on out of water will melt/destroy it and it can only be used under water. Is that true?
              SCOTTIE S  I've used it out of the water multiple times without issues. I've owned 2 of these lights for over 4 years and they still work perfectly.
              Shopper  Does this light sink or float ?
              LeisurePro S  This light is slightly negatively buoyant.
