Get your SAFT Batteries here!

Tired of high costs?

I found the SAFT here for $ 4.00 each (tabs removed) batch.

Regular price is $6.00 each, no quantity minimums.

Sorry it took so long to find my invoice John

Thanks John As a new O2PTIMA diver I go through a lot of batteries just to be cautious.

Re: Get your SAFT Batteries here!

Tabs removed sounds like the solder in version that has had the solder tabs removed....I think I'll continue to use the more expensive SAFT's with my HH's to make sure I don't run into any connectivity issues.

Re: Get your SAFT Batteries here!

The tabs removed items are a limted quantity batch, $4 ea. I have been using them all summer with no issues in the Hammerhead handsets at all.


Their normal stock of SAFT batteries are $6 ea.

Enjoy

Re: Get your SAFT Batteries here!

Here is another source at $1.95 ea and free shipping. I have just received a small quantity and will be testing them out in the HH over the coming weeks. I cut off the leads and filed them flat and does not seem to be a connection issue in the HH controller so far.

Re: Get your SAFT Batteries here!

I received 12 of the $1.95 Saft Batteries from EMT.
I removed the leads, filed the "clipped" piece flat and they work great. I used them in my HH Inspo last weekend. did two dives, total run time was just over three hours, no battery issues what so ever.

I checked the volatage and expire dates, all OK.

Re: Get your SAFT Batteries here!

I ordered 10 safts from West Florida components for my HS last Thursday. Found them on ebay $4.99 (for 10) & $9 shipping to the UK. They turned up in the UK today & have the solder tabs but at $1.40 each I can live with the filing.
