Video review of the TR-DF006 Diving light - From Dealextreme.

DX sent me a light for review.

EDIT: For disclosure purposes, I need to state that DX asked if I would add tracking to any links of lights I review. The purpose if so they can find out if it is worth it, to get lights reviewed or not. This is just an FYI. The added part of the link is so they know if someone clicked on the light from here or not.

Thanks, carry on.....

It's a diving light and I have never had my head below water, but I will dive right in and make a fool of myself in the video below.

It was a really nice light and my testing showed no water leaks. I think it was of good quality for a Trustfire. I usually don't like Trustfire, but this one was good. I cannot say it won't leak at depths, since 6 feet is the deepest I can go.

Specs off the DX page

I think the 2300mA and 600 lumen is about right.

Thanks for the review OL. I believe you may need new glasses though as at the 9 minute mark there was water dripping rapidly from the light. I'm surprised you did not get wet. I assume that the water drips upwards on your side of the equator where you live. Downunder the drips fall to the ground. Interesting. I would love to know what your neighbors think of you. Smile

Apart from that it looks like a real nice light.

Thanks for the review OL. I always enjoy your videos.

Cells are usually come at around 3,6-3,7v because its the best storage voltage.

If there is a next time, please take some pictures or video when you sit be the pool with a fishing line and a flashlight in the end. Big Smile

That is the famous PWM water! It's very light water! It's amazing how it drips upward isn't it? I imagine in AU it drips down. My neighbors don't talk to me, they run away when they see me.

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

Very good review. I watched it all and found it interesting. I was surprised they usd a slide switch, but it does seem to work ok in keeping the inner parts dry. thanks for posting Smile
