    Re: Liquivision X1 CCR Dive Computer

    So, in the interview Jeff asked Doug about the battery life..."how often will it need to be replaced" I believe the question was. Doug referred to a 10 year life span. First off I am a very skeptical of this claim, if it's true, it's by leaps and bounds the most advanced rechargeable battery on the planet, no other device i've ever owned comes close. Most rechargeable batteries have several hundred charging cycles at best before they start dropping off considerably in performance. the thing that most concerns me about the battery, if what I've been hearing about many of the parts of the computer are true, is that very little of the computer is serviceable because it's potted. So when Doug was asked how often the battery needs replacing, if what i've been hearing is true, he should have said the battery is not replaceable.

    Who can verify how much of the computer is serviceable? I'd be very reluctant to buy a computer that might break after the warranty runs out, requiring me to buy a whole new one, even if it was offered at cost. If this computer is intended to be disposable, I think dealers should be up front about that.

    The battery is potted in a different layer, so it can be replaced.

    Thanks for listing that Curt. I do believe that "Never" is an awfully long time and a bit hard to believe.

    that would quell my concern if true, thanks for answering. can you verify a source? and do you know about other components, are they serviceable?

    I like the computer for several of it's features, mainly it's compact size! I also see wisdom in having one's back up computer be a totally different brand from the primary, so I am considering having a shearwater and a liquivision down the line.

    I understand that, BUT I have never had a piece of equipment I did not break, lose, or one of my dive buddies (Brett Hemphill) barrow and never return for more than 3 years. Thus if the warranty lasts that long, I am good to go.
