There is plenty to be impressed about with the OrcaTorch D630 Dive Light! On a recent trip to the Haven Wreck I used it for the first time. Firstly, and possibly most importantly, it is really easy to use. There is a lock to prevent it being turned on accidentally, the switch could be little bigger, specialy when you use it with dry gloves, but it works fine. Once unlocked it is a simple button press to flick through the modes. It is easy to mount and with the adjustable cable angle it can be put wherever suits you best and still have a good hose route. The hose is not to long, ideal size.

This is a great light for wreck diving or using on any overhead environment dive. I have not tried it at night, but I can be confident it would be outstanding for this too. It is a tough, rugged, quality dive light with both impressive battery life and light beam.

The Battery life is very good, I didden’t have to charge it this trip. I used it to a max depth of 81m.

The battery and lighthead, have a good size and very good weight. Ideal to travel. When you charge the battery, you can see by led-lights of the progress, even you can charge your cell-phone with the battery.
