New Power Tool Battery
Same size, same power, yet uses power tool batteries available anywhere, and you can travel by air. This battery module allows you to take 4 power tool batteries, install them in the tube to create one large battery and dive the Piranha just like you always have. The module contains a safety circuit that protects each battery from damage and will indicate with LED’s if one pack is bad or not fully charged. Batteries are a common size available worldwide and there is no need to purchase them from Dive Xtras, now or in the future, when you need to replace them.
Compatible with 5Ah, 20v (USA only) or 18v batteries that fit the DCB interface.

Neutral Buoyancy out of the box
The Piranha DPV is designed to be ready to dive in a neutrally buoyant configuration for both fresh and saltwater, right out of the box. To achieve this, each module is pre-weighted at the factory with lead shot for fresh water, and three stainless steel weight plates are installed with thumbscrews for saltwater. Each weight plate corresponds to a module of the complete DPV (019-7003 – Nose, 019-12009 – Tail, and 019-12010 – Battery). All Piranhas are shipped from the factory with all three weight plates installed, however please note that both the Battery and Tail weight plate are installed on the battery module. When diving the Piranha in a P2 or larger configuration in saltwater, simply leave both the Tail and Battery weight plate installed on the battery module closest to the tail, and remove the larger Tail weight plate from each subsequent battery module while leaving the smaller Battery weight plate installed on them. To configure for freshwater, remove all of the stainless steel weight plates from the DPV and reinstall the thumbscrews for safekeeping.
Ergonomic Handle And Trigger
To make the Piranha dive scooter better than everything else we looked outside the industry for inspiration. Leveraging the huge R&D effort the bycicle industry has put in over the years we created a design based on an ergonomic bike grip with a trigger that emulates a gear shift. The handle is standard to fit most diver grips and the trigger is reversible to suit different trigger finger lengths.
