Review

There is plenty to be impressed about with the OrcaTorch D630 Dive Light! On a recent trip to Capernwray I used it both as a light and gave it to my buddy to model for me, so that I could see it in action from both sides. Firstly, and possibly most importantly, it is really easy to use. There is a lock to prevent it being turned on accidentally, and this switch is easy to use even with thick gloves. Once unlocked it is a simple button press to flick through the modes. The dive was a bit green and murky, but this powerful light cut through the less than perfect water conditions really well. It is easy to mount and with the adjustable cable angle it can be put wherever suits you best and still have a good hose route.

I love the fact that at the end of a couple of long dives using this light, I was still able to use the battery to charge my phone! The D630 gives a clear indication of the power left in the battery, so you will never be caught short on a dive.

This is a great light for wreck diving or using on any overhead environment dive. I have not tried it at night, but I can be confident it would be outstanding for this too. It is a tough, rugged, quality dive light with both impressive battery life and light beam.

At £539.95 ($659.95) you are getting a quality light for your money. It is depth rated to 150m and the battery will last for 5 hours – so it is a great dive light to join you on your next adventure.
