Led Lenser "Frogman"
As Recommended by Dive Magazine and awarded 9/10 for performance and value.
The Frogman Neon diving torch's colour is bright enough to blind you, never mind the torch itself.
This is the perfect piece of kit for any diver. The Frogman is very well made, heavy, and very Bright.
Specially made for Divers, the Frogman delivers a really bright and focused beam, that cuts through water.
"Just what you need when your in a dark hull of a sunken ship"
Battery life is expected at 40 hours per set of AA Alkaline Batteries, and the Bulb (Led Chip) will Never need changing. Awsome.

What You Said...
While new to diving, I do do a lot of travelling using various portable electrical items, and as a result I am set up with a good selection of rechargeable AA batteries and a charger that can be used both at home and in the car.
For this reason it seemed sensible when looking for a dive torch that it should use the same batteries rather than having to set myself up with new batteries and chargers.
My initial purchase was a torch that used four AA batteries and a halogen bulb. This turned out to be pathetic, its strongest point being that its wrist strap broke and it floated away never to be seen again so that I did not have to put up with its amazingly week, and short lived, beam any longer.
I then saw a review for the LED-Lenser Frogman torch. Unlike many other LED torches it only uses a single high-power LED and so it seemed reasonable to expect a more focused beam than the multi LED torches. Reviews seemed favourable, it uses AA batteries, so I bought one.
When it arrived I was impressed with its build quality and small size, and I was quickly reassured that the small bubble in the lens is a normal part of the manufacturing process and they all have them.
Although I had read comments that it turned on by rotating the front in the opposite direction to normal this cause me no problems and the resulting light appeared very bright.
However, the only way to truly assess it is taking diving which I did fairly soon afterwards. I found it easy to handle in the water, and while the beam was a little narrower than might have been ideal as it only illuminated a small area at a time, this was offset by the fact that the narrow beam concentrated the light so that the illumination levels, and penetration, were very good. Without any prompting after the dive my buddy commented on what a good torch it was and while its most ideal use is probably as a backup torch, using it as a primary light source is certainly possible.
