Dive Xtras - BlackTip Exploration
SHIPPING NOW WITH THE NEW APP ENABLED BLACKTIPS
If you need longer duration than the other models then the Exploration is the best choice. It’s a lot bigger and heavier, but fits four 9/12Ah batteries for double the range and runtime of the other batteries. Its definitely a lot more scooter than you need for Tech and recreational dives, but if you push the limits of dive duration, this is the scooter for you.

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.
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.
The BlackTip Tech has been designed to float trim and neutral when using larger 9Ah or 12Ah batteries. This is ideal for more technical dives, and makes scooter operation a breeze!
Saltwater Weight Plate
The BlackTip Tech also includes a removable weighted plate to balance out your scooter when diving in saltwater. It can be easily removed to adapt to freshwater, making balancing your BlackTip Tech a breeze!
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.
The BlackTip features new drive firmware, with silent operation! Incredibly quiet and more efficient than ever!
Programmable Speed Settings
Your BlackTip’s speed gears can also be customized to suit your own preferences, either by adjusting the number of speed gears or by adjusting the speed of each gear!
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.
