Just received light, so have not tested in water yet. Played with it at night in some dark places and in my pool. Beam seems pretty bright. I bought 2 of them (for my kids) and one is a little brighter than the other. Both are new out of the package and have the same alkaline batteries in them.

Also, I thought I was buying the "newer" 95 lumen model, but the back of the package under specifications says 47 lumens, so I will have to enquire about that. If anyone has more info on this, please advise....

Good when compared to other 2nd generation led lights, but poor performer when compared to the current 3rd gen lights. This light is rated as a 95 lumen light, a bit of a stretch. When placed next to the SL4 Eled, the beam from this light isn't even noticeable. For the 10 or 15 dollar difference, I'd go with the UK SL4 Eled. A little too bulky for a backup light, too dim for a primary.

    I bought this light as a primary night dive light since my wife has a larger primary night dive light. It works very well for night dives but is a bit weak for a day dive. It is compact enough to leave in your BC pocket and always have it with you.

    "Torrent" Means Flooded

        Comments about Princeton Tec 126 Lumens Torrent LED Dive Light:

        Our two lights flooded on the first dives December 2012. Thinking I didn't tighten the first one, I carefully siliconed the o-rings on the second one and screwed it down hard, but it only last a few minutes longer. A friend of ours had the same thing happen with his Torrent light January 2013 on the first dive, so there's obviously a design flaw.

        Comments about Princeton Tec 126 Lumens Torrent LED Dive Light:

        I gave my UK SL4 eLED 400 lumens light to my dive master in Jamaica in lieu of tips. He claimed shipping to his village was exorbitantly expensive, and he could use the light to supplement his income by (legally) hunting lobsters, so.... Instead of getting another UK light, I bought the Princeton Tec because it uses AA
        rechargeable batteries, and I already had a supply of those and a charger. I thought it made sense instead of lugging C cells and another charger just for the UK light. Problem is, at only 126 lumens, the Princeton Tec literally pales in comparison with the UK SL4. To make matters worse, the Princeton Tec's switch lock always slides down, meaning I have made many a dive with a hot, bright BC pocket! As long as I remember to check it periodically during the dive, the Princeton Tec makes a decent low-power dive light. I don't do much night diving or cave diving, so this light gets used mainly to brighten up the occasional swim-thru, help my camera focus in low light, or get the attention of other divers. If I can find a more powerful, compact light that uses AA batteries, I'll consign this one to backup status.

          Comments about Princeton Tec 126 Lumens Torrent LED Dive Light:

          I bought two of these for my wife and me when we did our AOW dives. They come with batteries, and seem pretty bright. When it came time for our night dive my light lit up fine and was bright and focused. My wife's was much dimmer, I'd say ~1/2 as bright as mine. Something that was hard to determine in the daytime, else we would have done something about it. Luckily the dive instructor had an extra for us.

          When I was removing the batteries the next day I noticed if I twisted one of the batteries in my wife's light it would be as bright as mine. Must be something with the battery contact or maybe the battery itself. I could see no obvious reason why it would do this. Easy to fix during the day, not so much at night. I'll keep them both and use the twitchy one as a back-up or maybe an around-the-house light.

          The lanyards are nice and overall the construction seems good and solid. I've read people have issues with the switches butI found them to be solid as well. Came with a load batteries too.

          3 flags since one worked great and the other more-or-less worked.

          Questions about this item:

          Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
          JEFF C  DONT BUY THIS ITEM, IT FLOODED DURING THE FIRST DIVE. THE DESIGN OF ON/OFF DONT WORK WELL WITH PRESSURE MORE THAN 60". YOU PAY WHAT YOU GET!
          David C  How big is this light, overall length and widest diameter?
          PETER S  Length: 6 3/4 inches Widest Diameter: 2 1/8 inches
          David C  Thanks. Perfect size!
          Shopper  I noticed the burn time was fairly short for an LED. Is there a replacement bulb for this light, should this one burn out?
          LeisurePro S  Unfortunately, we do not carry a replacement bulb for this light, but the burn time is based off of how long a set of batteries will last, not the lifetime of the bulb.
