In Topic: Nauticam Battery Pack Problem - A6500

sounds like they built in a "keep alive" type of feature to draw just enough current to keep the battery active.  As you said, the low draw seems very reasonable.


Looks like my only concern with this has been resolved.


Look forward to your "real world" report.

Are there any updates on this?  I am thinking about an A6500 and wanted to know if this has been resolved, or if the DIY solution discussed above works.

Think I'll order the battery compartments and another LSD.


The improvements in the strobes look substantial.  Very glad I ordered on the "ground floor" but they look well worth the cost even at the current $699.00.  Also worth the extra month wait time.


Tom, I visited your website.  Amazing stuff.   Really, something unique and special.  Good work!.

It will also be interesting to see how they compare to the new Retra flash that should be coming in June.

I guess it varies depending on where you go.  We went to Indonesia about six years ago with no problems, no photos needed, no fingerprints, nothing but a valid passport and a return ticket.  Very easy.  Yes, a wait in line, but so what?


Seems odd that Roatan would be so burdensome.  But nothing about your experience would deter me from great diving in a foreign country.  Just buck up and get on with it.
