What type of batteries are used in a Seabob?

Old SEABOB Modells (5.12 - F7) contained high wquality LI-ION SAFT Batteries.

They come in big size, so that a old type SEABOB accumulator only contained 10 - 14 cells.

Those cells are also used in millitary and space Technology appliancies. They have very good charataristics and a very Long life time.

 

New SEABOB modells (apprpx. from 2013 F5,F5s, F5SR) use the standard industry cell 18650 from well known Brands like Samsung and Sanyo.

Advantage of this cell type is a better price due to mass production. 18650 is the cell that is constantly improoving in Performance / capacity because this cell is widly used in high tech industy.

CAYAGO is constantly improoving the Performance of the Seabobs by selecting the best available battary cells.

The best cell is not always the most expensive or the one with the higest capacity!

A SEABOB battary cell must have a long life time, Long shelf life, reasonable price, constantly the same good Quality and reliabillity, best charactaristics for Performance and quick charging.

The best Balance of all factors is German engeneering!   

Is a Seabob enviromental friendly?

Yes of Course!

A SEABOB emitts only heat and a bit of running noise. Old type Seabobs were even almost noiseless!

A SEABOB will not harm marine Fauna & Flora, because the Propulsion is a relatively low powered Jet drive.

Fish will simply ignore the SEABOB or are attracted to it (Dolfins).

Running into corals could be a Problem, but considering the high value and precious varnish of a SEABOB it is unlikely that a SEABOB owner would risk a damage on the espensive toy! Manuverability of a SEABOB is very accurate and stopping distance very short. It is almost impossible to harm something without harming the Driver as well.

 

 

Is a Seabob safe?

A SEABOB is compared to other ater toys relativly low powered.

The max Speed is approx. 22 km/h. light persons / Kids can get in gliding mode and exeed this speed considerably!

Due to the limited power and relatively low speed the danger of getting seriously hurt is much lower than on a Jet Ski with 300 HP!

However, it must be understood that water Sport in General involves the risk of drownding! Hiting something under water is the biggest risk.

In our experience if a SEABOB is used in a traffic free area there is nothing to hit under water except another SEABOB. 

In the Manual there are Basic safety ruels that should be followed.

Minimum age for a Driver is also stated in the Manual. In our experience a Driver must be as tal as a SEABOB to be able to control it.

Otherwise it depends more on the character and water Sport experience of the Person than age.

A SEABOB has an integrated depth sensor. It will stop engne after 2.5 - 3 m are reached.

A SEABOB floats (approx. 8 KG psoitive buoyancy). If it stops under water it starts to accent on ist own.

To summ it up, a SEABOB is not dangerous if you use it with given care.

Even if "out of control" the possible damage a SEABOB can do is limited by it's low power and rubber nose.   

Why is a Seabob so expensive?

A SEABOB must resist UV light, 40 m water pressure, and slat water. For that reason only the higest quality parts are used for production.

Also a high quality control in purchase and production departmens result in high costs.

Developing the SEABOB required a high Investments in numerous Trials and development capacities.

A SEABOB is completely MADE IN GERMANY!

Most parts are from German companies.

A world wide distribution and service network is backing this quality product with warranty.
