This battery-powered tankless dive system allows you to enjoy time underwater without cumbersome scuba tanks, and can even be carried onto planes
From US company Blu3 (pronounced “blue”) comes battery-powered tankless dive systems that let people enjoy time underwater without cumbersome scuba tanks.
The result of Blu3’s R&D and patent-pending technology is what the company claims to be the world’s smallest dive system, Nemo.
The Nemo tankless diving system allows easy shallow-water diving. It features a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that allows a single diver to dive down to 10 feet (about three metres) for up to 90 minutes or more. Whether you are treasure hunting, a recreational diver, or just seeking a travel-friendly adventure companion, this provides an easy way to start underwater exploration.
Nemo weighs less than 4.5kg and measures under 30cm on all sides. The Nemo can even be carried on airplanes and comes with a backpack for easy storage and transport. The Smart Reg technology monitors divers’ breathing to get the most out of each dive by extending the life of the batteries.
Each unit comes with a flotation ring and foam, a dive flag and upper air intake, a swappable battery pack and a compact compressor unit, hose and regulator.

The basic rig plus two spare batteries costs US$1,400 and can be ordered directly from the supplier. Nemo currently ships to over 40 countries. The company says its purpose is to make underwater exploration easier and encourage awareness and protection for the oceans.
Blu3 is a subsidiary of Brownie’s Marine Group, a listed company that specialises in surface-supplied air systems for commercial divers.
