Hehe..I do...but I'm not saying.smile.png

 

Seriously, though, I'd recommend you go for the highest lumen LED output @ a very wide beam angle (100 degrees +) that you can afford.

What's your budget? And what are you using it for?

I was searching for a good and affordable light out in the market, and this is what I came up with. Mangrove 4L6 http://www.aditech-uw.com/en/underwater-lighting/1146-mangrove-videocompact-vc-4l6.html

 

They are very bright and the beam angle is 120ºx130º. You can watch this light in action HERE

 

I hope this helps.

 

Cheers

Hey that's my image lol

The Sola 4000's put out great light, but I think those Mangroves would be pretty good too.

The Mangroves are heavy, but one way or the other, you want your lights to last. That means batt power. The choice is a heavy batt pack on your housing or your tank... or self contained. I have cables, so I chose self-contained. Buoyancy can be easily compensated.

I use and love my Keldan lights. Has anyone any experience with the lights produced by Gates? I have only seen them topside.

For self-contained units, Fisheye Aquavolt 3500s and 7000s are worth considering. HTH, Tim

I agree but I'm under the impression that here the Fisheye are not well regarded. ;)

 

I had the opportunity to dive with the Sola 2000, 4000 and the Mangrove. IMHO for price/performance ratio Fisheye Aquavolt 3500 are the best of them.

The Mangrove are the cheapest but they are very bulky and heavy. I know that buoyancy can be easily compensated but in this case it's a pita.

I used a lot Halcyon hid and lately Yellow Diving hid video lights but I hate having extra cables and canister.

 

I wish I could upgrade to the Aquavolt 7000. Light is never enough :)
