In this way, the founders wanted to make shallow scuba diving accessible to everyone.

Scuba tank features

Internal water volume of the tank is 0.5L with the maximum authorized pressure of 200 bars. The weight of an empty tank is 2,2 kg and 30, 5 x 20 x 11,5 cm dimensions which make it very light and easy to use. The maximum authorized depth of use for non-divers is 3m. These technical features provide you the possibility to breathe under water for 5 to 10 minutes.

The most important and most sensitive part of preparations before diving is filling the tank. There are 4 ways to do it properly and safely on the MiniPro:

  1. Manual hand pump – easy to fill the entire tank, as its mobile, high-pressure pump with no needs for the electrical source. Approximate pumping time is 10 to 20 minutes. Changeable after 30 filling.
  2. Electric compressor – mini compressor specially developed for MiniDive Pro. It can be plugged in every 220 V plug. Very fast filling for 2mins 30 secs. With safety valve, it is safe from over pressing.
  3. Filling station – this is a little adapter for air transfer, available to buy separately.
  4. Classic diving compressor – use directly in the DIN valve

Available accessories along with MiniDive Pro are compressed air tank and harness in order to make users more comfortable and safe.
Warranty of the MiniDive Pro is 2 years  and for a hand pump and the mini compressor is 1 year.
