What's in the box: RS3 Sea Scooter and LI-ION Battery
Scuba divers pursue their sport to experience the fun and excitement of the underwater world. A DPV (Dive Propulsion Vehicle) can enhance this experience by providing a greater mobility and extended time while using less effort. Designed to provide divers with greater mobility and less air consumption giving them more bottom time (within table limits) and far greater range.
There is nothing ordinary about the way it looks or the way it glides for that matter. You submerge and it reacts and adapts, you toggle into gear it comes alive! See-Doo's RS Series Sea Scooter RS3 with its environmentally friendly Lithium-Ion power source and unique instant neutral buoyancy system, offers a bold new way to experience the big blue.
Visionary design for an underwater adventure guaranteeing the most thrilling and energy efficient underwater ride ever. At the heart of the RS Series Sea Scooters is the Lithium-Ion (LI-ION) battery. LI-ION batteries are the most energetic rechargeable batteries available for electronic consumer product today. The technology is being scaled for the automotive industry but already featured in See-Doo's RS Series Sea Scooters supplying great efficiency, acceleration and range. LI-ION batteries have a high energy to weight ratio meaning that a given weight battery stores more power than an equal weight Lead-Acid or NiMH battery. This makes them much lighter and more powerful than other types of rechargeable batteries of the same size. LI-ION batteries have no issues with respects to air travel! Another great advantage to LI-ION batteries is that they have no memory effect; you don't have to completely discharge them before recharging, they retain most of their charge even in months of storage, and can easily take hundreds of charge/discharge cycles. Because of their long life LI-ION batteries are environmentally considerate and cost effective energy source for the future.
The Automatic Buoyancy Control feature of the RS Series Sea Scooters is a self-filling ballast hull that achieves neutral buoyancy almost instantly. Strategically placed drain holes allow water to freely enter and exit the ballast space making the Sea Scooter automatically assume neutral buoyancy when submerged, and expel water as soon as it hits the surface. Fine tune your buoyancy by using the optional four ballast weights in any of four insertion slots.
The Handlebar of the Scooter is the user's main navigation tool and is made of the best impact resistant material. It features smart ergonomically positioned triggers for a natural thumb position during trigger operation. Accessory D-ring attachment points and a dashboard-style LED battery status indicator for an accurate voltage display during use. The RS3 measures 12.6" x 11.8" x 24" (319 x 300 x 610 mm) and weighs 19 lbs (8.6 kg) on land and is depth rated to 98' (30 meters). The DPV is powered by a 22.2 Volt 4AH LI-ION rechargeable battery and uses 220 Watts of power. The DPV's run time on a full charge is 60 minutes and can obtain a speed of 3.40 mph (5 km/h). Recharge time is 3 hours and the unit has 2 gears.
