    Leon says there is no need to oil fill anything down to 150m go past that and you should look at filling them. The problem then is that the oil degrades the displays with time and will cost you $$ to replace them.

    Re: Apecs eletronics down 150 meters

    I apologize for my OT question, Bruno. Is it a problem with HH Meg or Shearwater Meg to go beyond 150 meters?

    It's commonly released because that's what it's rated to........Go further than 150M and you have to fill the handsets and yes the battery boxes but be prepared to replace the electronics in both afterwards.....

    My second-hand Meg handsets are oil-filled (just happened to be the way they came). In the three and a half years I've had them I've only had to replace one handset and that was for different reasons.
