If you love toodling around underwater with a Bonex scooter and always wondered how much battery life you had left, the company now has a solution.

The German company recently introduced a new feature to its line of ECOS and ECOS+ model scooters.

Those scooters now have an LED battery level indicator mounted directly on the tube in the diver’s field of view. A tricolor LED display (Green-Yellow-Red) shows the user the current battery charge level before and during the dive.

The LED battery life indicator is to the left of the red dial.

When the LED lights show Green, Yellow and Red, that means the unit has more than 60 percent of its battery life available. Yellow and Red means it has 20 percent to 60 percent power, and just Red means it has less than 20 percent power left.

According to the company:

“This new feature increases further the safety during the dive and gives the opportunity for a good preparation for diving. The diver sees the battery charge status at a glance at any time and can prepare, plan and adjust the dive correspondingly.”

The ECOS retails for 3,521 Euros/US$3,958 and the ECOS+ retails for 3,941 Euros/US$4,430.
