Dive Light Replacement

Dive Light ReplacementI believe in sharing positive experiences when warranted, and I believe this qualifies. Last year I damaged my favorite dive light, a Princeton Tec Miniwave LED, in heavy surge working the kelp project at Shaw’s Cove. The case got slammed into a reef, and subsequently cracked and flooded. I had the light for a few years so I figured I got my monies worth, and was
prepared to toss it. However, I called Princeton Tec first, explained what happened, and they told me to send it in. It had a lifetime warranty regardless of the obvious abuse. I just received a brand new light yesterday. Thank You Princeton Tec. They are now on my favorite products list.

If you are looking to stock a alternative value line my second choice would be the Intova line of lights and even thei camera line is a great price/value point.

Isn’t the INTOVA line out of HI?

Yes, I believe you are correct

I have a couple of the Mini Wav Eled and have made use of the lifetime warranty a couple of times but overall the light does a great job and it’s well worth the price. When I’ve had to call they have been very responsive. The first light I got was missing a o-ring and they replaced it without a charge.

IMHO the light has 1 weak spot in it’s engineering and that is the lock/switch assembly. The plastic parts have been known to break and I have had 1 lock break and 1 switch toggle arm break. A call and a couple of repair kit were on there way (instead of sending the light) Again no charge. I saved them postage and labor to repair and they saved me the usual postage and handliing. I’m happy to do business with a company that is willing to work with their customers.

I love Princeton Tec, I had a light that had to be 20 years old stop working, it was a discontinued model so they sent me a new light.
