AirBuddy Tankless Dive Gear For Portable Scuba Diving

April 26, 2017

I think it was about a year ago that I first heard about the AirBuddy. As a scuba diver, it really caught my attention. It is definitely not computer related, but it is a piece of hardware. While I would be thrilled if I got a free one, I’ve gotten absolutely nothing for writing this post and will receive no compensation if you order one. It is just a cool product that I want to share. Below is a collage of images to show it being used.

As you can see from the images, the main compressor floats inside a buoy on the surface and it delivers compressed air through a tube to the diver below. The compressor runs on battery and lasts 45 minutes and it allows a single diver to go as deep as 40 feet (12 meters). It is not a complete replacement for scuba gear, but certainly simplifies quick dives in shallow water.

Right now the product is in the final stages of development and they will be launching a Kickstarter campaign on April 27, 2017 (less than a day after this post goes live). Even if it hasn’t launched, you can go to the Kickstarter page to see all the details. Depending on when you are reading this post, the campaign could have already ended and so the page no longer exist. Just in case, you can go to the AirBuddy Web site.

If you are a diver, I’m sure you’ll find AirBuddy quite interesting. Even non-divers may want to tell their friends about it. Oh how I wish I had one when I visit the beach this summer!
