    Hello to all, Thanks to everyone that has added to this post it convinced me to finally purchase the Abyss "S". I sourced it from a Amsterdam company for £1035 delivered to uk.

    I cant wait for delivery, The only thing I haven't seen a beam comparison between ph40/50 and the abyss. i'm very interested in the reflector difference.

    I am most fortunate to have the PH50 and the Abyss "S" but alas, no camera equipment capable of capturing the differences at this point. Hopefully Patriot will be able to do so. I will try to get out over the weekend with mine and (presuming fewer violent storms) be able to give a better description than I did in my previous post. I can say that without a question I much prefer the more compact form factor of the Abyss. Karl

    I finally took delivery of the Abyss U2 today and WOW!!!! what a fantastic light, It has a compact feel and smooth action. It has a fantastic beam pattern and having used the PH35 I can say that the beam pattern is very practical for hotspot and periferal light. The polarion is just amazing and the light is SMALL!. I have purchased the light for use at work which is land based the only worrie I have is that the literature states that as the light is designed for use in water after 25-30 mins it may cut out due to thermal protection. I have not done a complete runtime test yet, I'm just hoping the British weather will keep the unit cool. I'll post information on here when I have done a full run test on both power output levels. I am in the process of making a flexible handle and holster attachment. I will post pictures when they are complete. I also briefly did a comparison beam test between the Boxer 24W and the polarion and the difference was huge. The boxer which I have used for a few years as my primary light, it does have an adjustable beam but compared to the Polarion it was simply Dim.

    Well having recieved the polarion I have found that this is such a compact light i wanted a way to carry it on my duty belt. I decided to make a leather belt case but also to make a leather strap to replace the handle as this makes it much smaller and easier to carry. The bezel is completely covered in leather so is completly protected. I have also fitted my belt with a yoke that puts the weight on my shoulders rather than my waist, it works well although not the best if i have to run!!!!!!





    The leather works well with heat, It sits well on my duty belt i will post a picture when i have the chance.

    Very nicely done. I always wondered what a Polarion would look like in a holster.

    Wish I could Matt but I'm waiting for the next "right" camera for me to do what I want---my point and shoot permits no manual control I'm afraid.

    A question about the Abyss dual S or D ,

    On the Polarion USA website there are two conflicting reports :
    We can read this on the pdf :

    NOTE: This HID searchlight is intended for Underwater Use and requires the cooling characteristics of the
    surrounding water to facilitate proper heat dissipation. This light will deactivate if the internal

    temperature of the light rises to a specified point. The U2 Abyss HID Searchlight can be re-activated when the system has cooled sufficiently.

    And this on the abyss webpage to purchase :

    Although the Dual Abyss searchlight was designed for underwater use, it is absolutely at home for land-based illumination requirements. No concerns in terms of overheating with this searchlight when it's out of the water.

    Hard to know the truth ... ! What do you think about this ?

    Thanks

    BICKFORD

    After 3 years of constantly leaving them on full charge, my PH50 batteries are about dead. I can only conclude you guys experienced parasitic drain. That's too soon for your batteries to lose that much of a charge.

    Taking the battery apart and installing new cells is probably the way to go, for those brave enough to attempt it. There's a good thread about it here (some of you have already seen it.)
    Resistance is futile...
