    Greetings,

    I have a bunch of 26650 Li-ion batteries but no real use for them. Does anyone know of a dive light which works with the 26650 Li-ion battery?

    TIA,
    Darrell

    My video lights from DRIS use those. They last considerably longer than the 18650.

    +1 on the Xtar D26. I have 2 of them and I love them!

    Did a little hunting on my own and the Xtar D26 seems to be the best choice for a good dive light compatible with the 26650 batteries. Not looking for a video light. Was hoping to find something with a slightly narrower beam but it will make a good back up light.

    Thanks everyone,
    Darrell

    I just got a Div10, but haven't had chance to get it wet yet. I also got some DIV12 backup torches... have tried those and very impressed so far.

    Love the DIV10. Intended to be used as a backup/vacation light, it's now my primary light because my main light stopped working.

    I have only one gripe with it, that is it's burn time. Full power means about 1,5 hour max. burn time. My other canister light did about 5 hours or more full power. But then, it was about 4 times expensive. So all in all I'am very pleased with my DIV10.
