Tank module: interruption of signals, difficulty in pairing with dive computer, short battery life
Posted by Sergio Angelini on 24 October 2012 10:30 AM

All symptoms described in the title are attributable to a low battery. The battery in the Icon HD tank module should have a life of approximately 130 hours of transmission, which should translate in 130 hours of dive time if care is taken towards having the system always purged of any pressure when not in use. Every instant that the tank module is on a tank with a pressure higher than 10bar, the tank module is on and consuming the battery. This applies also to a tank that has been opened to check for pressure and subsequently closed without purging. If this is done upon gearing up at the beginning of a boat ride and the dive starts an hour later, during that one hour the Icon HD tank module has used up a full hour of battery life. The same applies to after the dive.
