Welcome to Dive Gear Reviews, a comprehensive guide to scuba diving equipment. Scuba diving is an expensive pursuit, so looking up reviews for a particular article of equipment is a wise precaution before investing any hard-earned money in it. However, consumer reviews may or may not be written by an experienced diver, and magazine reviews could be suspect due to the advertising ties of the publication in question. Dive Gear Reviews provides cross-referenced reviews assembled by an expert, making it possible to see at a glance what multiple sources said about a particular piece of scuba equipment. If one magazine loved a scuba regulator or a dive computer, but the consumers hated it, that information will be found here.

Princeton Tec Miniwave LED Dive Light Review

Written by Dive Gear Reviews Editor. Comments Off on Princeton Tec Miniwave LED Dive Light Review Posted in: Between $101-$250, Dive Lights

The Miniwave is essentially a scaled-down version of the Shockwave, which makes it a durable, reliable and very compact pistol-grip style LED dive light.  The smaller size makes it a solid dive light for recreational divers or an very able back-up for cave and tec divers, since the Miniwave is powerful, yet small enough that it can be conveniently pocketed or strapped down until it is needed. The trigger mechanism has a low and high beam setting, as well as a lock to ensure the dive light does not come on accidentally and burn the batteries away. The three LED bulbs put out 337 Lumens, with 4 hours of burn time (10 hours on the low setting) drawn from four C batteries. Divers who own a Miniwave seem to love it, with LeisurePro users giving it 4 1/2 Flags.

Average Price: $75

*Editor’s Note: I also own and love a Miniwave.
