    They've just quoted me $4000 for a booster that only has a 5:1 ratio, guess i will not be getting one of them then.

    Cheers,

    What do you want it for?

    If filling RB tanks only, then look at their baby booster.

    Less than half what you've been quoted for the micro booster.

    I got a HI Booster from TechBlue about 6 months ago... stunning bit of kit and ended up being around £1200 including whips etc.

    But if the Divertec unit had been around then I would have given it VERY serious consideration.

    Jetsam Baby booster is awesome for RB diving. We use it to boost bottles up to 40cuft. Has worked perfect for several years. Lightweight for travel

    Another option is Hydraulics International C2 booster

    Little heavier than Baby Booster, but has a hand pump oprion.

    hello, at least 3 cases I know (one was my jetsam booster) where the piston got stuck in the cylinder, six months old, not used that much

    small piece of metal between piston and cylinder, piston total loss.

    ??? shipping from belgium is more expencive than let make one locally, so i did the last, works again

    Re: Micro Booster

    I've been using the nano booster for about a year and no serious problems. Although when it was new I could boost to around 3200psi easily now I'm about at 2900 easily. The last bit takes a loooong time to go. Source tank and drive pressure not particularly low either. I'll probably pull it apart one of these days to see what the story is but until then, anyone else experienced this?

    By "drive pressure", I assume that you checked the IP of the drive gas first stage ?

    I set mine at 10bar.
