    Booster

    OK, second post...... not quite so boring.

    While I was away in the Carribean, I nearly bought a Kiss booster, credit card in hand but they cocked up and I didn't get it.............oooohhhh sorry didn't know you actually wanted it. Well I do want it/ one or whatever. Is there anything else on the market I should be looking at? Driven like the kiss by a cylinder, sorry can't remember the name of the booster, mini..me or something.

    All ideas gratefully received.

    Thanks,

    Phil.

    Hi Phil,


    Check this link, it's very similar to the Jetsam. https://www.tech-blue.com/en-us/dept_30.html

    Also see this thread http://www.rebreatherworld.com/t949-.html.

    PRISM Topaz & Sport KISS

    (still owned) MK15

    Tech Blue sells the Hydraulics Internationalpump seen below.
    He's a board member and will make you a good price.



    Stuart's got one from him, too.
    There are more pics in the RB Accesories & Parts gallery of both the HI and Jetsam pumps.
    Beanie wrote an article about the Jetsam Nano Booster, and Stuart should have.

    What are the pros and cons of this pump when compared to a Jetsam Baby Booster?

    TIA.

    it's a little bit heavier, the type of valves used are a little more robust, and you can also get a hand pump kit for when you are miles from anywhere without enough drive gas.

    It uses ball not reed valves, is a little bigger and can pump faster.

    downside is not as light for travel.

    If you are thinking of getting one have a word with Chris from tech blue it is who I got mine off and I am VERY happy....I will do a write up this week

    Hey that looks a great price for the whip kit! Just a side note the american adapters for O2 and He will not work in the UK (you might want to delete them).

    You will need to get a bull nose adapter to fit in the J and then connect to the quick disconnect.

    I am guessing you will need a bull nose to a male 1/4 inch NPT (which the quick disconnect will then fit onto) - sub aqua products do these for about £30 I got 2 of them made up with quick disconnects on so I can leave one in the o2 J and one in the He J.

    Stuart

    PS It says guage port - does it include a guage?
