Most Liked Positive Review

 

Very bright, can dim down or act as a strobe.

Great compact part of my gear. Not a fan of the wrist mount... except maybe short periods in caves. Button is easily accessible and doesn't leak. Recommend a bright yellow stripe of tape added in case its ever dropped as its all black. Strobe allows quiet means to contact other divers. Used extensively in warmer Carribean waters.

Power button unreliable

Took this on a dive in Puerto Escondido using the supplied glove mount. The power/setting button was unreliable when attempting to cycle through modes, which was very annoying when we were already down 80' and needed it to look under caves and rocks. It seemed to drain battery very quickly, and it never changed brightness modes until we'd reached the surface. Not a bad brightness level for a torch, but this is probably better as a backup or secondary source. I'll keep this for shallower freed...

Great little light

By Nicholas R.

 -  Originally posted on Leisure Pro

Bought this is a primary night-dive light and it works very well. The glove that came with it is too small for my wife's hand, so bought a Goodman glove (also from LP) that worked great. As others have mentioned, it arrives without batteries, but you can find two batteries and a charger for under $20. The light turns on very easily with one hand, which is necessary when it's mounted on the back of one hand, where a twist-type would be impossible. That said, be sure to remove the battery when traveling as the light can easily turn on if bumped. All in all, a great little light. I'll soon buy another for me.

 

Great light

I like the the fact that you can adjust the brightness. Was on a night dive and at times the highest level seemed too bright, but the ability to make it brighter was good when I was looking into rock out crops. It fits right in the pock of my BC. Gets a little hot tho. Would not use it out of water.

 

Had great hopes but......

I am not pleased with this light. First of all, it uses a battery that can only be bought as a rechargeable. that sounds OK but I've tried two different brands of battery and returned one of each because the light will not stay on. Second the on off switch does not feel dependable. I had great hopes for this light because it is very bright but the bottom line is if it won't stay on in the dark I cannot trust it underwater.

 

Blue Reef Orca Torch 1000 Lumens Dive Light

By Stephen K.

from Sacramneto, CA, US

 -  Originally posted on Leisure Pro

Love this dive light! My dive partner (daughter) and I both used this light. My previous light was under 100 lumens. The BROT 1000 was far better at a reasonable cost. The light would penetrate far into dark lava tube caves. The glove light holder makes it very easy to dive with. However, if you have a small hand, as my daughter does, the velcro strap is too big to hold the glove down properly.

This has been a great light for the price works great on day time dives looking for critters in the nooks and crannies.

 

Ok Torch....

By JOHN H.

from MIssoula, MT, US

 -  Originally posted on Leisure Pro

The light works well as a night torch but it has it's limitations. What I like is that it's compact and bright and has a decent feel and lanyard. What I don't like is that the switch is very touchy and so if you don't want it turning on accidentally then you had better take out the battery. It switches on even when there's minor contact with the switch. Big problem.... Therefore don't plan on using it during the day or as a backup as it will switch on and burn up your battery. Also, I wish they would have considered using a different type of battery, even if it bulked up the light some. I like the replaceable battery but it's an expensive one and good luck finding one in a remote part of the work.

 

Suprizingly good lumens. And durable.

This light has lasted thru several dives without a problem. Good size, and good lumen. Great in travel by plane.

Great light at a great price

I've had a number of other back-up light over the years, but none is as well made and bright as the Orcatouch D500. Oh, there are better lights, but for the price, you're not going to find one that measures up to the D500 in quality and power.
