Obviously the #1 will be the Panasonic LX3. Yeah!
Hi Helpful Diver,
you can read the explanation for the title at the end of the article itself.
More info on that. The newer X1 units can be opened up and re-potted. Older models would just be replaced by the manufacturer. From what I hear only 5-6 batteries have failed out of the 1500+ units that have been sold thus far.
It's posted! Many more articles coming from Tom.
It's a good point but I'd have to say I don't care. It's their problem if I need repair. From what I understand they can un-pot it though.
I think you can tuck it safely. I can design another one to your spec though, it's pretty easy.
Hmmm, how do you figure ? Obvious from their battery policy, the thing can be opened by the manufacturer and re-potted. Also, like any electronics, past warranty, you'll have to pay for repairs, just like the VR3. At least (and I know it's not a problem for you, being in the UK), we don't have to ship it to Europe to get it fixed, it's handled in North America. My experience with the VR3 is that you had to pay for every repair including their famous "Health Check service" as well as any software update, from year to year (which includes bug fixes):
• VR3 Firmware Only Upgrade (Faster Turnaround) : $149.95
• VR3 Health Check (includes Firmware Update): $199.95
Thanks. Did you think it was a little long on the rays ?
I have seen the thread on the Liquvision Forums and I think that Ross gave a fair explanation to why he doesn't think these should be included. The no-fly time is something agencies and DAN push (and I think they're right to do so) but don't agree on. Theoretically you should be able to fly after you dive but we know this is not safe. I follow the 24 hours rule, there is always something to visit around your dive location or an opportunity to wind down, clean your gear, rest. Within 24 hours, you'll be completely desaturated. I don't need (want) the computer to give me a safe time. I don't know of any that do (at least computed), they give you 12 hours or 24. I can make that choice and calculation by myself based on my training.
