Fantasea LED 360 focus light

Just bought one of these Fantasea LED focus lights to replace the flawed Nano Fix (every one of these I know of has flooded)

Anyway the 360 has 36 LEDs and an On/Off switch so hopefully will have a longer life.
It's much bigger and brighter but still has the "Auto Off during flash" function as well as a handy continuous flash mode in case you ever get lost at sea!

I tried the focus light under the deep ledges at Cottage Reef and it worked very well allowing me to focus quickly on a seadragon in the darkness. It would be an excellent night dive torch also.

Purchased from in Byron Bay for A$84.95 + $5.50 shipping.

Additional: Price has just jumped to US$81 from Fantasea or $140 from!

This light has now died (lasted 12 months). No obvious flooding but rust appearing around 2 of the LEDs. Buddy Rich's died a few months ago and the light is no longer being sold.
I'm back to using a Princeton REC 1 LED torch.


  1. Is that a DIY attachment arm or did you purchase it somewhere?

  2. Yes made it myself.
    Aluminium from a hardware store and the red is nylon from an old chopping board

  3. Thanks. I think I am going to try the same thing!

  4. Let me know if you want more photos or measurements.

  5. Price is actually 99.95 from underwater -

  6. Hmmm... This is cool. Nowadays using LED light are being popular maybe because it is safe to use and decrease the usage of electricity.

  8. It so great idea. It look so heavy but if you use it under water its convenient to use it!! I like it so much!! thanks for sharing gadget like this..
