I rely on the expertise of my LDS, I check with their equipment and before screwing on a first stage I check with an el cheapo analyser.
You say you dive at remote locations but do you fill your tanks at unknown and remote locations too?
Hello. "I rely on the expertise of my LDS." I get that.....but, even so, in black, and white, it not only sounds scary, but looks scary. Sorry. just my opinion. Divers/People in the Industry regardless of the role being played, even a thousand times....make mistakes. I was taught to analyse before every dive. I like you, check with their equipment. I do not always get fills, and go diving, sometimes it may be days. I've had % stickers come off in the past, Etc. I am merely looking for an O2 analyzer that is portable, (Hence the O.P.) so I can check the contents of the bottles moments before I submerge, and remove any doubt. Not doing so could be costly, as most of us know. To answer your question.....No, I do not get fills remotely. Ultimately, regardless of anyone's routine, or gas checking practices, this is for "My." peace of mind." I solo dive quite often, this is just another way for me to be safe, and I'm usually very steadfast in my approach.
I am looking for recommendations. As of this writing leaning towards the "Expedition," or "El cheapo."
