ie, you have to keep sweeping the torch from side to side to see the area clear or not before you plop your belly to take a picture.

but hey...RM 45 ? somebody said? how to complain?


can you post some pics of the inside? wanna see what are the differences between the one thats currently selling now..  :D ..  looks damn cheap tho..


will post tomo, but looks diff from this black housing one, mine got CREE on the metal base and also the heat-sink is better designed.no more stock ar? i bought 2 luckily. one of the best diving purchases ever...did you guys see it on sale at one of the booth at MIDE 2012 ? they adv at RM120...my wife and i were giggling

jakesean,

just to add...my yellow torch has only one level of brightness. although the switch can be turned to 3 positions, the brightness stays the same.

jakesan bro,
RM60 for a torch for diving is consider cheap, if it works & i believe it will work
basically it is a copycat from D14 LED Lenser (Frogman) (somewhere around 40 pound), it is similar...... :grin:
i actually have both, the original D14 LED Lenser (Frogman) & Made in China unit (from sport diving magazine - free gift hehe...)

planning to get it from the same guy from Jonker Street.. nearby my place only.. easy.. and RM60 only! anyone wanna tag along?? muahahha.. *stealing toodus business* :)

also bought another unit for someone the other day.. even tho the internals isnt as good as the previous CREE version, but underwater it works perfectly.. happy with its performance - brought it for deep dive, and it works!! didnt screw up..

as long as it lasts for at least 10 dives, i am happy..

i have no idea.. box says 120 lumens, and it says its using CREE LED.. but i see the LED nowhere around it says its CREE.. plus its china made so i doubt i can trust whatever it says on the box, except that it uses 4 AA batteries.. o well, as long as im happy and it works good underwater im fine.
