And drop them into Neptune's Locker. He loves shiny stuff and especially loves expensive stuff with good brand names.

Or, with a canister light, as you're switching gasses or whatever and accidentally knock the torch or the boltsnap tie fails, it falls down and is stopped by the cord.

That alone makes it worth it. That a canister light lasts a whole weekend without charging is a Billy bonus.
short dives if they last the whole weekend ;-) I have to turn mine down to get it to last all the way through deco on many of mine

Hanging on deco
Hello everyone! I’m looking to buy my first canister light and while browsing around I noticed that some models come in “Standard” or “Sidemount”. Can anyone tell me what’s the difference?

I usually dive a halcyon carbon fibre backplate and wing when in a group and I sidemount (Hollis Katana 2) when I go solo; I get that the “sidemount” version of the light is probably specifically designed for that, but would I be able to wear a “standard” version even in my sidemount configuration?

Hope this makes sense, thanks a lot for your help

For pictorial reference this is side gland:

And I will cast yet another vote for UWLD. Amazing lights absolutely love mine.

Unless you're caving, why do you leave it on at deco? There's sod all to look at (OK, that might be a parochial point).
