    These are fantastic lights. There are lights that are brighter, but these are super heavy, and mess with the trim and operation of the scooter. The Keldans are very close to neutral and work great on the scooters. Self-contained, and with 70+ minutes of burn time at full power.

    I'll elaborate a bit more on this. I was also diving 80/90 on these dives. My profiles weren't nearly as long as the forward teams, but pretty substantial dives nonetheless. Since I began using 80/90, I've felt great post dive.

    To some, 80/90 sounds nuts when you first hear about it. Some people's first impression is we are reckless or idiotic. I'll admit when I first heard about this, I was skeptical. But having the opportunity to work here, and sit in on the advanced lectures whenever I want to has it's benefits. By no means are these numbers pulled out of thin air, they are derived from a variety of scholarly articles, and scientific studies. Listening in on one of the deep lectures one day, and seeing the science and math represented visually on the board made it all click.

    Now when I hear about people diving 15/85, I think that's nuts.

    Thanks for the detail, Tony. I've been inching up my bottom GF but I'm still a long way from 80/90.

    THat is one way.

    When diving 70 Helium, we tell the computer we dive 10 or 20 instead.

    Claudia's way makes a little more sense. Most algorithms treat helium in a funny way. Adding a little He to a nitrox mix reduces deco time. As you keep adding more He, it eventually turns from a deco bonus into a deco penalty. There will be some blend of trimix that yields the least amount of deco time, far less than either pure nitrox or pure heliox.

    With all that being said, I don't feel comfortable with trying to find what that mix is and lying to my computer. If you can't afford the time, don't do the crime.
