    (I know, dropping it is somewhat sub-optimal, but it's reasonably likely)

    I considered it, but bought an umbilical anyway.
    I attach a P-clip to my lights. Clip it off to the cuff of my glove. Been doing it for years. Not lost a torch yet and no leash to be concerned about.

    Are you not on the bottom when bagging off anyway? Even at night time I switch my lights off when ascending on a bag

    I've just seen on the LFM website that it is possible to purchase an ex-demo, display model from them direct - and usually within my budget.

    They have several 4TEC/7XPE or 7XPG's up for sale.

    https://divetorch.eu/sets-fr/67-4tec...furbished.html

    When they say 6.7-11.25aH, does this mean it could come either either size of batteries? There doesn't seem to be much an option for battery choice, but it seems they're quoting for both (or neither?). Who knows.

    I'd still like the NW7 but I don't know what the 4TEC/early 4TEC's are like.
