To the experienced diving light guys. Straight Question... (Solarstorm DX4s?)

A very good friend asked me to build him a diving light. So, the straight question…

What do I buy if I need a…

  • As budget as possible…
  • No questions asked reliable up to 50-80m dives…
  • 18650, preferably 26650 (dual cell should be fine) based…
  • Highly moddable (want to build a FET based light)

…diving light?

So, is the Solarstorm DX4S maybe the light I should be looking at…? TomE did a nice mod on this light with seemingly good success. Is the DX4S spot on reliable? Does it throw enough for a diving application, one can obviously dedome that will help. Any better other options?

Neither of these lights are even rated to go to 80m.

Hi,
In my experience there`s not really a good reason for moding anymore, only if your really need an very special thing.
for exaple I moded the brinyte div09 from xml to xhp50, easy peasy, just change the led an done…. keep the 4 light modes as original, and to change the led it is very easy accessable. I could show you If you need

now to get drivers and stuff it is too dificult..
the brinytes I know they say either to 150m or 200m, and I thrust them, very good quality made, have opened a few ones, currentlly on the div01, also to xhp50…ehehehe

By FET what do you mean exactlly?

Three years ago I have bought this light for a diver: https://www.banggood.com/ARCHON-V10S-XM-L-U2-860LM-Professional-Diving-L... , and swapped the XM-L2 led for a nice neutral 3-tint. She uses it regularly, it has been to 50 meters with no problem and is she is very happy with it.
