What makes a Good Scuba Diving Torch?

When it comes to selecting the right diving light, brighter is not always better. If you are an avid diver, you know that there is a certain amount of particles that float around. If you are using a very bright light, it will only be lighting up the particles, which is pretty much distracting. If you are planning to take pictures, using very bright diving lights will only create hot spots. On the other hand, cave divers and wreck divers often prefer using bright lights during their explorations. Lastly, when looking for a great scuba diving torch, always go for high quality torches as they are more durable, reliable and last longer.
