I am asking to learn how to get involved. I have your regular scuba certs. Nitrox and TDI 100% O2. Do I require rebreather training for this unit? As mentioned you could get 3 hours on the system. Could this be extended with larger tanks on the system? Thank you Peter

Can this unit be used beyond 130 feet for decompression diving and can helium be introduced for deep diving?
does the rebreather unit come with the battery / computer and does it have the quick mount or what type of mount? thanks CJ
Fully managed by onboard computers, with two continuously recalibrating sensors constantly monitoring oxygen levels, and dive information recorded in the removable battery module. By the mount we are assuming you mean the harness. That is not included with the rebreather.
Is this product new? Is it complete and ready to dive with, without having to purchase some thing you might expect we should know about? How much for shipping to Australia?

World’s first recreational rebreather
The Poseidon MKVI is the world’s first rebreather for recreational divers. It’s a fullyclosed, fully automated unit that will make you see diving in a different light.
The system comprises a breathing loop (mouthpiece, hoses, counter lungs and backpack) with associated electronics module, and two independent gas cylinders. One contains 100% compressed oxygen which is added to the breathing loop as the diver consumes it. The second cylinder typically contains compressed air “diluent” to compensate for compression in the breathing loop as the diver goes deeper. It’s also a backup system, containing enough oxygen for the diver to breathe directly in an emergency.
Poseidon’s MKVI has 5 big advantages over traditional open circuit equipment: 3 hours typical dive time, Safer and easier to use, Lighter and smaller, No decompressions stops and Silent operation makes you part of the environment; not just a visitor.
The MKVI, the first true technological breakthrough in decades, is a gamechanger.
Compared to Open Circuit, rebreathers have 2 big advantages: Triple actual dive time, Far less disturbing to marine life
Poseidon’s recreational unit has 4 big additional advantages: Safer and easier to use, Lighter and smaller, No decompression stops, Warm breathing gas
