For diving, we designed this special battery case. It is rather robust, machined from a block of aluminum. We decided not to use a quick release closing mechanism, as this might open accidentally when squeezing through narrow cracks, scratching at the rocks. The case is closed by two stainless steel screws which are tightened with an allen wrench (provided with the dive set).

Our battery module system is designed for the maximum convenience. A four cell Li-ion battery pack is housed in a robust plastic case. The contact to the battery case is made via two large, gold-plated multiple contacts. As for the internals, we are only using the maximum available capacity cells from top brands like Panasonic, Sanyo (subsidiary of Panasonic) or Samsung. These cells are top notch in terms of quality and are good for years of reliable service. The cells are protected by a supervisor electronics PCB which is installed inside the battery module.
