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.

Moray Diver Communication Torch (DCT) Dive Light Review

Written by Dive Gear Reviews Editor. Comments Off on Moray Diver Communication Torch (DCT) Dive Light Review Posted in: Below $100, Dive Lights

Moray’s Diver Communication Torch (DCT) is a powerful dive light in a compact package, with an extra feature that make it a must-have item for divemasters or anyone who regularly leads groups of divers. At eight inches long and two inches wide, the DCT is fairly average in terms of size for a flashlight-style dive light. Electricity is provided by a pair of C batteries, capable of powering the 175-lumen LED bulb for about eight hours of full light and 20 hours at 150 lumens after that. The dive light has a fixed reflector and produces a tight spot beam.

The extra feature that makes the DCT so handy for dive leaders is Moray’s built-in noisemaker, audible underwater up to 100 feet away. The DCT’s noisemaker is reliable, not as clumsy as tapping your tank with a spoon, and doesn’t use any air. The dive light is made from ABS and Lexan, and uses a double O-ring seal to achieve a depth rating of 500 feet (152 m).

The DCT would be an above average recreational dive light solely on the basis of its power output, stamina and durability. Add to that the handy communication feature, and it becomes a real winner.

Average Price: $130
