Moray Diver's Communication Torch (DCT)
The DCT is a powerful dive light that’s depth rated to 500 feet, with a noisemaker integrated into its rugged ABS casing. Just shake the light and you’ve got an effective attention grabber. ScubaLab testers tried it out underwater and found that, true to its claim, the noisemaker can be heard from a distance of 100 feet. Offering an eight-hour burn time at full power, the DCT comes with batteries and a lanyard. Price: $130; moraydivegear.com
