    My wife's Petrel battery compartment flooded, and the screen blanked before the dive was over. Apparently my wife had knocked the edge of the computer, where the battery cap is, against a rock or something. She hadn't even noticed when it happened. But upon inspection, sure enough there was a nick on the edge. Shearwater had to replace the entire case.

    I don't remember. Was it your thread a few months back about this?
