This is a great light. High intensity in a compact design. 1st one was stolen, 2nd one I left the batteries in it over the winter and they exploded. This is my third one, its the only light I ever use. I have a larger 4d cell pistol grip type light but find this one to be brigher and more compact. Highly recommeded.

This light flooded entirely and ruined the bulb on first use. I had initially thought it was my fault - perhaps I hadn't screwed the light bulb onto the housing fully. I bought a replacement bulb (which cost 1/2 the cost of a new light) and tried it again. It seemed okay but after 3-4 dives, it flooded again. I can see now that the gasket is poorly manufactured so that it's twisted and can't be straightened. I'm going to trash this light now because it's not worth sinking more money into it. I also have a UK mini q40 eLED and it's equally bright to this light underwater. The SL6 isn't bright enough or reliable enough to be worth the frustration.

Pros

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Recreational

    Comments about Underwater Kinetics Sunlight Dive Light:

    Use this as a primary light on daytime dives in NJ. Perfect for looking in holes for fish and lobsters. Depending on water conditions, can be used up to 10 feet away. Light, small and powerful beam with those 6 batteries.

    Great company for honoring their warranty. Had a 5 year old SL6 flood on me a few years ago. UK replaced it, no questions asked. Didn't want to see receipt or proof of purchase (which was great because who keeps those things for 5 years?) Great company that stands behind their products.

      This is a great night dive light in water with good vis. It is compact and easy to carry and has a sharp focused beam. This light does not work well for day dives in low vis water.

      Comments about Underwater Kinetics Sunlight Dive Light:

      For the [$] I paid, this light is a good deal. It emits a very natural, orange/yellow beam.The Good: focused beam, bright with fresh batteries, Seems pretty ruggedThe Not-so-good: the 6 C batteries make it slightly bulky, and they drain quickly. Switch doesn't lock so it can turn on in your gear bag.Overall: Not the brightest light I've used, but it's definitely works.
