The battery compartment is fitted with an O-ring seal for optimum protection against leakage. This proven method of sealing is easy to maintain.
In normal use, the Torpedo DPV is negative when underwater. This allows a diver to set the unit down on the bottom to make equipment adjustments, facilitate exploration, explore a wreck or reef or pause to take pictures. For the snorkeler who wants the unit to be more buoyant, floatation accessories are available.
The handles are designed for optimum function. Their location along the centerline of thrust and buoyancy provides minimal operation effort and arm fatigue while in use. This design also allows the user to carry the Torpedo DPV with ease while out of the water. The common 7/8 inch handle diameter allows for numerous accessory attachments to better adapt this unit to the individual’s needs.
The Torpedo DPV can be positioned upright for ease in opening and closing the unit to access the battery, as well as minimizing floor space during storage.
A magnetically activated reed switch, is designed for both safety and dependability. A magnet, conveniently inserted in a velco palm strap, activates the switch.
