    Has anybody had any experience of the Divepro S40? I'm looking for a brighter torch, any chinese recomendtions in the 4000 range?

    On the smaller torch side I have one of these from Amazon and better than the sealife 900 I have.

    Chinese Lumens are between 2 and 10 times the number of SI Lumens. The variance depends on how much the seller likes to exaggerate.

    Register an AliExpress account, check cost & postage, buy item, wait about 2 or 3 weeks for it to arrive. It's pretty much like Ebay (and many of the sellers are the same)

    I take it the cheap umbilical ones aren't worth bothering with as opposed to the one on ali express recommended earlier? 20,000 lumens seems over rated, and I'm wondering if the umbilical is just something I'd end up getting snagged.

    Doesn't look like they'll ship that to the UK

    EDIT: just refreshed and suddenly shipping is now available to the UK

    I've got one of the Northern Diver Varilux 3500 lumen torches which I've been very pleased with
    https://www.ndiver.com/varilux-3500-torch
    The variable output is extremely useful to enable it to be turned down for night dives. In fact, it is so bright that I very rarely use it on full power.

    My wife has one of the smaller 1000 lumen Varilux torches which is an excellent torch as well. The dive guides on our Red Sea trip were using these for night dives. They have a more concentrated spot beam than their bigger brother which will illuminate a large area.

    So I never did buy a torch, I’ve been struggling on with the pretty weak ones I had and tbh there hasn’t been much diving due to covid.

    However I’m due to go on a trip in July and feel I need to get myself a decent torch. Ive bought a new wing that has no pockets, but I do have pockets on my drysuit which are much more useable now.

    I need to be able to stash the torch as I’ve also got a GoPro with lights on a tray which I want to be able to use too, but obviously with a torch hanging off and the camera tray with camera and lights I can see a lot of snagging risks, and I can’t see that have a torch in thigh pockets on my drysuit is going to be too comfortable.

    has anyone got any suggestsions, and are there any newer recommendations for torches as I realise this thread is a couple of years old now.

    Try here and look at the Divepro lights. I bought some video lights in November, the lights are rather good. Supplier service also excellent.
