Nackers does a nice baby Salvo backup light for 28 quid, which is favoured by a few on here, myself included, which is quite a nice torch.
(And it means I can say I own a Salvo :teeth: )

I can't reccomend the Tektite range enough. They do a 4 LED torch called the Trek 4 in plastic or aluminium. Brett had one in at Divelife and I wanted an LED backup having seen some decent ones doing the rounds, and this has consistently done the job nicely, and I don't seem to be able to break it, unlike everything else I own. Burns for 700 hours or something silly, rated to 300 metres or something else silly, and generally pretty indestrucible. I've specialised in dropping mine from waist height onto carparks across the land and it just keeps working and working.

Oh, and they sell for about £25-£30 in plastic, I think it's more for the ally ones if you're into your fashion. They're also very narrow so are easily hidden away on your gear.

Jen got a couple of them years ago and still uses them. I got my first about a year ago and got another a few weeks back. Comes in a range of colours I think as well. At least I have a black one and an orange one, so I think they do.

Can you tell I like them?

Rob, that's another typo. It's spelt Tektite.

Roy, it is a twist to on torch. Simple reliable operation. In my experiences all switches can fail, and should be minimised where possible. Plus they don't get turned on in your bag or on the way out to the site or through things underwater.
