A dive light is an indispensable tool for any scuba diver and its benefits are well documented. While a bigger dive light is essential for good navigation, carrying a smaller dive light as a backup is important as well. What if your big dive light fails on a night dive? A small light is also easy to carry and more convenient for exploring tight spaces like cracks and under rocks. Here are the top 3 smallest dive lights that you will find on the market.

It is compact and can be neatly tucked away in a PC pocket. In general, it is a good secondary light and great for looking into small areas.
