OrcaTorch Dive Light Giveaway

We’re giving away an OrcaTorch D530 dive light!

The OrcaTorch D530 is an impressive dive light that packs enough power, over 1000 lumens, to be a primary dive light, yet compact enough to be a great backup light. The 5 degree super focus beam angle is very impressive as is the battery power and overall build. The light uses a titanium alloy side switch that offers 2 lighting modes, the high mode 1050 lumen and the low mode 220 lumen, which allows for easy operation underwater. The LED indicator light located on the switch button also lets you know the battery’s remaining charge.

OrcaTorch D520 Dive Lights Review by Troy Iloski

I had a chance to test this dive light in the cenotes of Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico. And in the salt water diving around Cancun and Isla Mujeres. The purpose of this dive light was to be used as a backup light in the: caves, shipwrecks and the night dives but I end up using it as a primary light since is very small and powerful. I also mounted on my camera rig as a focus light and for video. I was very happy with the performance, long lasting rechargible battery and strong design. Thank you OrcaTorch for a great product!
