Compatible with 5Ah, 6Ah, 9Ah, 12Ah, 20v (USA only) or 18v batteries that fit the DCB interface.

Batteries

The BlackTip is powered by a pair of commonly-found power tool batteries installed directly into the body. This makes the scooter easy to charge and even easier to extend the length of your dive by swapping out batteries on the fly. The BlackTip accepts any 20v (USA only) or 18v DCB-format power tool batteries in the following formats: 5Ah, 6Ah, 9Ah, 12Ah. These can be purchased at retailers worldwide or online via Amazon or other seller.

LED Display

The BlackTip features a built-in LED screen that displays speed, battery level, and also a mismatch error in case of battery depletion or voltage inconsistency.

Safe Start

Activating the BlackTip outside of water will trigger a new feature known as ‘safe start’. The BlackTip will start in a low-power, slow-turning propeller mode if it detects it’s not in water. This helps to prevent unintended damage to your scooter or equipment while not actively diving.

Travel

Your Blacktip can be taken on all commercial flights. By utilizing removable and compact power tool batteries, the BlackTip keeps within the TSA’s air travel limits on lithium batteries. This feature, combined with the scooter’s weight of only 24lbs, makes the BlackTip a very travel-friendly and compact option for international divers!

 

Trigger & Speed

The BlackTip features eight speed modes. To activate the scooter, press the thumb trigger twice. The BlackTip will start in speed 3 (known as ‘cruise speed’) if in water, but will start in ‘safety start’ mode if not in water. Once your BlackTip is running, pressing the thumb switch twice will accelerate the scooter by one gear, and pressing the trigger once will slow the scooter down by one gear.

Buoyancy

Your BlackTip scooter can be made neutral with a combination of batteries and weights. However, the BlackTip’s nose will always float slightly positive compared to the tail. This may surprise some experienced scooter users, but isn’t a concern for most recreational divers.
