Hi, Eric!

I've been diving with a Pelican 2010 (LED, 3 C cells that seem to last forever - rated 50 hours); if it floods you get a new one - lifetime. Light weight with both lanyard and clip. Its not a 'light up the seas' type light, but has served me very well for over a hundred night dives. Also makes a great surface light as its water proof and LED doesn't heat up like most other bulbs. At teh price it can be a primary and back-up.

I also carry a Pelican MityLite (2 AAA batteries) as a second back-up and easy-to carry and use daytime light in my pouch - enough to find my way back at night, but limited for any surface signaling. Used it on a night dive in the Bahamas when my rented light died.

Not reecommended for technical diving and dive within your limits of training... (legal disclaimer I have to add)
