    Genius and icon transmitters

    40 hours of diving battery life is a big improvement on the ridiculous battery life on the icon.

    Genius and icon transmitters

    hi. Does anyone know if the transmitter supplied with the icon also works with the genius. I fancy upgrading but don’t really want to buy a new transmitter as well as a new computer.

    Mares icon hd malfunctioning

    I have charged my icon to 100% but as soon as I dive the battery reading goes to 6%, starts losing % and then dies. This has now happened twice. Just charged it again ( from dead) and it went to 100% within ten minutes. Unplug it and within a minute it’s back to 6%. Help !!!

    What are you considering as next step after go pro?

    I am hearing a lot of good things about Paralenz so may well move over to one of those when my GoPro7 black is no more. I had my GoPro 3 for nearly 4 years so it won't be soon.

    Couldn't complete OWD, distraught & lost all confidence

    Sounds like you had a bit of a shabby outfit training you. When I did my OW (and to be honest every other course) my instructors have made it a priority to ensure all students are happy and as calm as they can be. Diving should be enjoyable and even the courses should be enjoyable. You need to...

    So why did you do it?

    I know exactly when. It was July 2013 and me,my wife and daughter were on a boat trip from Malta to Comino and we had stopped at the blue lagoon at Comino. Me and my daughter were snorkelling and I could see a couple of divers below. I thought however fantastic it was snorkelling it must be even...

    Best bang for the Buck Drysuit...

    When I was diving in the north sea of the seven divers I dived with six were in Othree. The majority of instructors in the UK are in Othree. Most of the guys I buddy with in the UK are in Othree. They are not in them because they are cheap.They are in them because we dive in cold water (+3 is my...

    Best bang for the Buck Drysuit...

    Othree without a doubt. They offer a Skype fit service which is spot on. My suit fitted perfectly and the after service is second to none.

    Any equipment buying regrets ?

    Trilaminate drysuit that was too big for me (cost 720). Compounded the issue by paying another 150 to have it adjusted as much as it could be. Still too large so sold it for 250. Out of pocket by £650. Carried out three dives in it. Important lesson is Don’t buy a drysuit online .

    Gear purchases you DON’T regret

    Absolutely. I can’t fault them for service or the quality of their drysuits. I had mine fitted using a Skype video fitting as I couldn’t get down to their factory. They are in a different league when it comes to service.

    Gear purchases you DON’T regret

    My Othree drysuit. Messed about with buying various off the peg drysuits with varying success. Then decided enough was enough and bit the bullet on a made to measure Othree drysuit. Best diving purchase I have made.

    Seadragon 1500F and Gopro

    I think the airfare for me to come and pick it up would make it a bit too pricey !

    Seadragon 1500F and Gopro

    I have a gopro7 and am looking at lighting for it. The 1500F keeps getting mentioned as a good light and is in my price range. Couple of questions .. 1. Would anyone recommend this light. 2. As I am liveaboarding I guess I will need a spare battery. Where can I get one in UK as I can’t find any...

    GoPro underwater..... filters or lights ?

    Thanks. I am now thinking of getting a seadragon 2500 light and the flip filters. Hopefully I will get some good footage.

    GoPro underwater..... filters or lights ?

    Sorry if this is a stupid question.... I am diving regularly in UK mainly inland so lots of green water, I also dive in the Red Sea where I do want to get good footage. If I have to choose I want good footage in the Red Sea even if the payback is less quality in UK water. My question is.... Am I...

    Should I use Nitrox on liveaboard?

    First liveaboard I did in the Red was on nitrox. Felt a lot less fatigued after 4 dives which meant I couldn’t sleep ! All the other liveaboards I have dived on air and slept a lot better. After 21 dives in six days I need a rest regardless of what I have been breathing.
