I bought this light and it was very quickly sent. I am exceptionally pleased with the lights performance. BUT! After one Night Dive, something happened and the switch broke so be careful with the mechanism. I suspect it was just the one I purchased, as in general, the mechanism and components used appear to be quite solid. Among 16 people on an advanced night dive class this was by far the brightest light there. One person even had a 6 D cell light and this one still outshined. I was very pleased. The only concern was with cloudy water, it was TO bright. But I noticed this was the same with the other lights as well.

The on/off switch broke on my first night dive with it. Will definitely recommend NOT to any of my students.
If you're a cave or wreck diver, DO NOT rely on this torch. The switch could easily break during your dive.
However, the small back-up light that comes as a gift with the primary one is reliable.

Where is the lithium recharge-ables??

      Comments about Princeton Tec, 170 Lumens Shockwave LED Dive Light:

      The switch is for people that can read English language, you fight with it and it breaks......alignment when placing the batteries is Key!
      should be like a mobile phone battery, lithium, light and recharge-able for at lest 1500cycles, full power.
      Good diving to those who deserve it!

      I love this light for lobster diving, I bought it as my main light after an unfortunate evening when 10 minutes into a dive the batteries in my only light died. My buddy had this light and for the rest of the evening we were switching off using it. I loved it

              Comments about Princeton Tec, 170 Lumens Shockwave LED Dive Light:

              I have had 2 Princeton Tec LED lights - Both had the switch break on their first trip. They just fell apart with pieces in the battery compartment. It's a nice bright light when it works, but in my experience highly unreliable - especially for any situation where light failure is serious. Princeton Tec will replace defective ones, but I will carry something else on night dives.
