need a light for general reef diving, etc. in Belize first week of June. Is this good for crevice lighting, etc.?
It's better than nothing, but wouldn't count on it lasting very long. Not very bright, either.. It is small and fits in a BC pocket well, though.
I dive in the dark waters of Puget Sound and this light works for me to find fish on the wall and wreck dives here. It is small enough to make it easy to carry and has plenty of power. I actually prefer it to my C-4. You may also find it handy in Belize if you happen to loose power like we did in the Yucatan.
Good light for peeking in holes and under ledges, and a backup light for night dives. I like a bigger light for primary night dive light.
Thanks a lot guys. I appreciate the prompt feedback. At this price I picked up a couple (one for me and one for my son) and will give them a shot. Has anyone here dived Belize?
It's agood quality light but since it has a screw bezel to turn the light on and off. You have to screw it to a point where the light goes off and then just a little more or the light might come on by it self if stored in a bc pocket other than that it's a great lite
Great for general reef diving. It's compact and the price is just right. the LED is bright, but the beam is not adjustable. I would say perfect for Belize. Though you may want a bigger light with a wider beam for the Blue Hole. cheers!
During daylight I really don't see much benefit to this light. Its good for pointing out something you are trying to highlight for your buddy, but doesn't do much for general illumination. The Princeton TEC 400 has a really bright beam, and is only slightly larger. The Princeton TEC could be your primary dive light, and it actually does illuminate crevice during daylight hours.
Hope this helps! Enjoy Belize!
