OrcaTorch manufactures leading-edge waterproof torches; it has high-quality models suitable for every purpose, on land, over or underwater.

The light is generated by second generation Cree LEDs, which provide high output from low power consumption, which results in excellent illumination and long battery life. Batteries are either rechargeable or disposable. Depending on model, on-off switches are either in-built rotary action or magnetically operated to ensure easy, smooth function and eliminate any possibility of water ingress. Additional functions, such as selecting high, medium or low output, high-powered strobe and SOS-Flash are also magnetically switched.

OrcaTorch’s Tactical range of torches are engineered for heavy-duty, general-purpose use and, being waterproof to two metres depth, they are ideal on deck, working in the bilge, fishing, kayaking, camping and tramping. Ultra-compact models suitable for a tool kit or jacket pocket are available.

The Dive torches and photography lights are waterproof to 150 metres and, depending on model, they have wide angle beams or spot beams providing up to 2700 lumens of illumination. The photographic lights have an extra-wide-angle beam and, to ensure even exposures, the light is even weighted throughout the beam (no centre hotspot). The D870 has eight white, four red and four UV LEDs to help record colourful images underwater.
