Here's what i am considering for lighting.

2 x Cree xm-l t6 https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01KUXYTJE/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=3T7Z4GVQ1RCJQ&coliid=I1Q4R6DX3QPCSE
1 x Drok constant current driver https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00VUHVX6W/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=3T7Z4GVQ1RCJQ&coliid=I1GHELE5VXQLW8&psc=1
It's a 70w driver so I can run both lights off it. The lights are 10w and 900 lm.

Or should I just get 2 of these https://www.amazon.ca/Flashlight-Dafana-Underwater-1200LM-Waterproof/dp/B071F3P43V/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1506723688&sr=8-7&keywords=dafana+underwater+flashlight
Good to 50m and 1200 lm.

Any thoughts or comments ?

Interesting problem.

The torch is great - but I found it needed to be switched on at the start of a mission and there is no easy way of dimming the light if required unless a complicated mechanical mechanism is built.

The Cree LED and PSU is the one I went for as the LED can be switched ON/OFF and dimmed.

I look forward to hearing which way you proceed and the solutions you implement.
