For the money this is the best backup light in my opinion. AA batteries are a plus and it works well on the mask too for night dives. I keep one of these clipped to my harness permanently.

The only negative is that there is nothing at the back to tie a boltsnap to - I had to improvise. The bulb did break once for no reason, but Underwater Kinetics sent me a new one right away (no charge).

This is a decent backup light. Only issue I have is that sometimes the pressure underwater will turn the light on by itself, meaning it is twisted far enough on the surface to be off, but under water at depth it just turns on. This could lead to battery drain if you do a lot of diving with it in your bc pocket and don't realize it has been on on every dive. This can be prevented if you twist it an extra turn in the off direction at the surface. After using this light for a few dives I switched over to the intova torch. It is brighter and alows me to look further into cracks and crevices for fish and lobster.

    I have a couple of them. People ask to borrow all the time and it's difficult to get the light back. Best light available for the price point.

      Used down to 80ft with no problems. Good center beam with adequate peripheral light to illuminate but not blind the fish!

        Comments about Underwater Kinetics Mini Q40 eLED Plus Dive Light:

        I ordered 3 of these lights. One did not work at all, one had a strong beam, and the last had a weaker beam. I returned all of them and got another light. One other point - they do not have lanyard to put around your wrist.

          Comments about Underwater Kinetics Mini Q40 eLED Plus Dive Light:

          I order one of these for my wife and one for myself for a snorkeling trip to Baja. When we received the package only one of the lamps were working properly, the other one had a short of some sort, and did not work.

          I took the working Mini Q40 along with a UKSL4, while the Q40 had a weaker beam this tiny lamp has a great light that brings the true colors of the corals and the fishes at night.

          Given its price, I would only recommed the lamp ONLY if you are willing to go through the trouble of returning it in case yours is also broken.
