There is a very wide range of dive torches available on the market; small LED rotating bezel torches costing as little as £7 or £8 generally run using standard alkaline AA batteries which are widely available. The more sophisticated umbilical torches can cost up to £500 or more; these torches have separate containers which house a special battery, made up of a number of cells.
These batteries are usually made of rechargeable NiCd, NiMH or Lithium-ion cells which can deliver the enough energy to the high power torches.
We have a lot of experience with dive torch batteries as we have built Custom Battery Packs to fit into dive torches (as well as Dive Computers).
In order for us to design a pack for you quickly, it would be helpful if you could Contact Us with the following specifications:
- Voltage requirements
- Capacity of the battery (mAh or Ah rating)
- Battery chemistry (NiMH, NiCd or Lithium)
- Cells used or pack/individual cell dimensions
- Battery terminations
- Make and model of your dive torch
If you have access to a digital camera, a picture of the battery would be good or physically sending us the pack will enable us to in essence copy the pack so your new pack will be a direct replacement.
