Thread: helmet torch recommendation

    Default helmet torch recommendation

    Hi guys

    I currently use two of these on my hat
    http://www.dx.com/p/zhishunjia-d2-t6...7#.WkpaWt9l97s

    they work fine since I replaced the O rings for proper ones (tested to 80m in tank), however the beam pattern is more of a "spot and halo" which is fine for a primary torch but ideally I would like more of an even beam with no spot.
    They also last absolutely ages on the low or middle setting using an efest 26650 cell

    Any advice on other cheap torches that might have that sort of beam or any easy reflector swap that would make it do what I want?

    Other option I was considering shot blasting the reflector

    Good day!

    I'm using Brinyte torch for commercial diving for a long time.

    Best for video is DIV08W - it uses 26650 battery.

    Battery life is 2hours on 100% and about 6 hours on 50% at water temperature +4 celsius.

    It uses a simple magnetic switch without o-rings and other sh**

    One of the best available low-cost torch.

    Sorry for my English
