Default Dive light.

Recommendations for a good dive light. Nothing real big and reasonably priced. Thanks

what ya looking to do with it? Night dive? Video or just browsing around the bottom looking for stuff in dark holes?

For me, I like the small compact ones that fit virtually anywhere

go to ebay and type in "dive light 220 lumens" (pretty bright for a good compact and you'll get lots of hits).

one of my favorites is an "Intova 220 Lumens"

its' aircraft grade aluminum and it has a magnetic slide switch, only thing is keep it off the bottom around iron wrecks (Barges, tanks and the likes) it'll fill up with rust powder and make the switch a bugger to slide.

you can cut a sleeve out of a rubber tube like a small bicycle innertube and slip it over the switch to prevent that but it does add challenges to turning it on or off on the fly underwater

No night dive for me. Just want to be able to look around holes, pipes etc. fairly new to diving, dove the phillips and bridge rubble a few weeks ago, visibility was not great. Buddy had a light and it helped so I'm looking to get one.

If yoiu can handle 50-60 bucks you'd probably be happy with the intova. I saw some cheaper 220 Lumen liights on EBAY that I'm thinking about trying myself. fo what you want, I'd stay away from the wide angle lenses
