Rescued Pelican Flashlights

November 9, 2022

Dear Pelican torches, I would like to congratulate you on your outstanding torches.

During a recent subsea platform inspection with a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) at a depth of ~67 metres (~73 yards) we found a SabreLite 2010i LED torch and the following day, a MityLite 1905i LED torch that had been dropped overboard from the offshore installation. Always mindful of the environment (and very curious) we retrieved both torches and brought them to the surface.

We were all amazed to find that, when opened, both torches were completely dry inside. The only fault was that the batteries were flat. On installing fresh batteries the torches worked 100% and are now being put to good use in their second lives. The SabreLite appeared "as new" so maybe had not been submerged for too long whilst the MityLite showed some signs of marine growth on it.

I would highly recommend your excellent torches to anyone and everyone!
