This happened to a new torch
« on: 28 Apr 16, 17:23 »
Bought this small torch at ADEX, with the intention to hang on my BC as back up, I got a shock to see what happen to the torch after the weekend trip:



Only happened to the surface and the torch is still working well, not even leak inside, the battery is still in good condition:

Made with double O ring, for diving, but not sea water corrosion proof. Manufacturer "👍".

That is the best part, you can see from the picture, after the 2 O-ring, the paint at the screw thread are in good condition, the torch is working well, may buy sand paper to sand the outside and use as land torch, but then an expensive one for land torch, haha....  ???
