if the manufacturer do not warranty it as a dive torch.... then why use it as one? even though it will work as one...

ie... apple watch can survive up to 40m uw water, but apple still deem it not.... so if you bring it down to 40m and it croak... u get no warranty...

You probably not aware of how this whole situation came about.

The local distributor promoted it as dive torch about 2 to 3 years ago, they were having video on their website showing how the torch perform during diving, even showing the depth in the video, they even re-label on the box as up to 40 meter. 

I believe they realized the problem later that this torch is not designed for diving and have taken the video out, this torch is also not showing as dive torch anymore.

I understand they tried and believed it could work as dive torch but realized the mistake later. What I was not happy was when the torch failed, they should be gentlemen enough to honor their mistake, instead gave me lame excuse that this is due to wear and tear and not covered under warranty.

If Apple Singapore declares and promote Apple watch can be used for diving, although the designer didn't intent to, and if it fail during diving, Apple Singapore should honor their warranty.

At first I was very surprised that many divers in singapore use srt7 as dive lights, since it is just a tactical torch introduced in other countries (like in china). If u search it on taobao.com, none of the sellers will warrant it as a dive torch. The official specification is very clear, ipx8/2-meter waterproof.

The local distributor's commercial video is just ridiculous in my view. How can u show a tactical torch can be used for diving  just bring it underwater with the zoop showing 40m? It needs much more serious tests like pressure test or corrosion test. I don't think the manufacturer has done these.

Ah...  I get the story now...

I agree that the local distributor should refund you and take the lost, but evidence of it being a dive torch is lost..  I guess that is that...

I went to nitecore.sg, and to their new website, search for dive torch, dont find SRT7 in this category anymore.

Yes, at Nitecorelights.com still promoting it as dive torch. Good luck to those who buy.
