I've used mechanical direct connection SPGs for about 40 years and several thousand dives. I have never had a single problem of any kind. Not one. I've never seen an SPG failure, though I've seen a few over the years leaking air. They continued to function, despite the trickle of bubbles which was probably caused by poor maintenance.
I would have said the same thing until February 9, when I witnessed Halcyon SPG explode when the tank was turned on. Of course the SPG was a backup for an Oceanic VT4, so nothing was lost except the SPG

Yes BUT...this is a discussion of Wireless connectivity not AI. My Cobalt provides me with the same data as your AI device but with less worry about disconnection. THAT's the issue here.
You're correct, I should have said wireless AI, I was imprecise. All the AIs mentioned in the thread were wireless AI, my mistake, sloppy
