YAMAHA UNDERWATER SCOOTER 220Li
The Yamaha Underwater Electric Scooter 220Li, is the entry level model of the New Professional Dive Series, an excellent starting point for all Snorkeler and Divers who are looking for a professional but low-cost product. Also suitable for those who need a convenient way from their boat to the beach or more for those who simply want to spend an hour of fun at the beach, at the lake or in the pool.
Like the whole Professional Dive Series (except for the 275L model), the 220Li also features a lithium-ion battery, 22.2v/4Ah for this model, which can be recharged in just 3 hours. It is possible to upgrade performance by installing the 500Li or 350Li batteries, for more fun and excitement.
This seascooter shape is perfectly hydrodynamic to minimize the friction of water, which combined with the 220W 2-speed brushless electric motor and the low weight of only 8.6Kg including battery, allows the Water Scooter to reach the maximum speed of 5Km/h and reach up to 30m depth. The front shell is in ABS while the battery compartment is made in polymeric alloy composed of PC + PBT.
All operations are very simple for the user. The GoPro®HERO support is included, the ergonomic handlebar houses a LED indicator to keep the battery status under control. The Triggers operate the propeller if both are pressed and deactivate the rotation even if only one is released. The operations for switching the DPV on and off are regulated by a general switch.
By default, the buoyancy is slightly positive so the DPV tends to come back to the surface once it is immersed in water. The buoyancy value can be modified by installing the appropriate ballast or floating elements, sold separately. All the buyoancy data refers to use in salt water. In freshwater the behavior of the 220Li underwater scooter may vary.
A special grid prevents unwanted contacts by the diver with the propeller, and the sensors installed in the battery compartment and engine area, when critical situations occur, will start a buzzer for let the user know that an issue is in act.
