    Light Ammonite LED Stingray Rechargeable (Deluxe Set)

    Appeared in DIVER October 2016
    LAST YEAR WE CONDUCTED A GROUP TEST OF 25 DIVE-LIGHTS (Who's That Stumblin’ in the Dark?, October). I remember finding the marketplace awash with high-quality, high-output, multi-functional lights yet, surprisingly, single-purpose torches for underwater use were thin on the ground.
    The situation has changed little since then. Light designers and makers seem seduced by all that LED technology available to them, and appear intent on cramming as many functions as they can into a single package.
    So it was a breath of fresh air when UK distributor Blue Orb sent me its rechargeable Ammonite Stingray torch to test and review.
    It has one function and one function only, to supply a white light in a single beam. I've been taking it under water for a few months to “well and truly” test it.
