Brownie’s Third Lung has been one of the leading surface supplied air (SSA) manufacturers in the industry, with the previous products being gas-powered.
Today they are changing the game with the introduction of all-new systems powered by a lithium ion battery. They have also introduced their new multiple diver tankless system called the Sea Lion.
The Sea Lion is a four-diver-maximum system that can run for up to three hours at 35 feet/10.7 meters on a single battery charge. It is the only multiple diver system on the market, and is made for both certified divers and those who have been properly trained.
The system includes:
1 24V lithium ion battery w/ custom terminals
1 Battery charger – 110V /220V compatible
1 2.5 Gallon/9.5 liter Accumulator tank
1 40ft/12m common down line with QRS fittings
3 20ft/6m individual diver hoses with QRS fittings
3 Brownie’s hookah regulators
3 Brownie’s patented Drop Weight Cummerbelts™
1 Intake staff w/dry top
1 Dive flag
1 Float tube
1 QRS Y-Divider
1 Deluxe mesh duffel gear bag
1 Owner’s Manual
The Sea Lion retails for US$5,995/~€6,068.
The existing SSA systems by Brownie’s — the Nemo and the Nomad — have also been converted from gas powered to lithium-ion batteries. The Nemo has a maximum depth of 10 feet/3 meters, a 60-90 minute run time, and retails for US$1,299/~€1,315. The Nomad has a maximum depth of 30 feet/9 meters, a 45-60 minute run time and retails for US$1,999/~€2,023.
Brownie’s also offers online education and training to give the non-certified diver a basic understanding of physics and physiology so they can safely use the SSA systems. For more information, visit browniedive.com.
