REVIEW of Cheap UNBRANDED Torch Claiming to be “Cree XM-L T6 x 3 4000lm Dive Torch”

A Chinese??? made Dive Torch claiming 4000 lm and suitability for diving. This I had to test and see if it really possible to buy a useable dive-light for peanuts on Ebay. The answer? YES! If you are willing to take a punt and recognise the limitations of the product. Watch the full video for more info.

Excellent torch only problem is the batteries dying if left in the torch.

What was your comment about the BCD about?

Douglas Jones says:

I have one of these. I bought better batteries for it and it lasts well over an hour, I have used it to 50 metres.

Andreas Ferrari says:

This was very helpful.I need a light that is waterproof and has an adjustable beam output.Battery time is not a problem since I carry several 18650’s at once.The feature that caught my attention was the attenuating side switch.Do you believe this light puts out 4,000lm?

I like the background music, did you make it? Any chance you upload it?

hey good video mate, nail on the head when i comes to safety, i recently did a dive in which we reached 30+ meters. i was using a torch which i bought from a dealer in the us. It failed within 3 dives and i was left at the bottom with no light! I did some investgating on the light and found that it was a “unbranded” light that the shop used. so buyer beware, do more research even with reputable dealers!

Those battery are fake UltraFire batteries… they are unprotected too. INR batteries from Panasonic are the best.

I have bought same lamp for 20USD from some aliexpress site, with free shipping. Originally price was 25USD but due to some post service regulations they apparently are not allowed to sent anything that include batteries. Anyway those red ultrafire 16850 batteries (included in package) are pure trash, so i have proposed to seller to sell me the lamp and battery charger for 20USD, problem solved. We have dived using this lamp in a small lake, up to 10m, with water temperature about 16 deg C. Lamp itself was ok, not great but it lights underwater for 20USD… With some new batteries, 10USD a piece, it can light at max for about 40min. I think it is good small lamp for casual, recreational dives as long as you dive at depth were there is still some sunlight.
