    As Graham knows I bought a Light Monkey as I was fed up waiting for the Halcyon torch to be fixed.

    I did tell him in July 2015 that the torch was OK and just needed a battery. The second battery was delivered to me in Dec 2015, tested when I returned from a trip in January 2016 and returned to Halcyon. Witchieblackcat needs to reply to that email and speak to Halcyon to get the replacement and then he will have a fully functioning light.

    An update on the bonkers torch.

    Early in the summer, I sent up a lift bag from 43m. Attached to it was my scallop bag and inside the bag, as well as the catch, was a Beaver strobe, a pair of gloves and the bonkers torch. It never surfaced.

    4 months later, it was found by a visiting diver, who consumed the scallops (reports were that they were alive but stank,) then forgot to take the bag out of his van before he returned to England.

    I finally got the bag back today. The strobe didn't make the journey, but the cheap Chinese torch, although a little tarnished, still works perfectly. After 4 months at 43m, I think that it has passed the watertight test.

    I believe that they now do an LED version.
