20cm under the sea
Hi Everyone, just want to give you quick update on water-resistance:
the sample beacon we had submerged on Wednesday afternoon is still functioning underwater more than 48 hours later. We fished it out, pull it apart and discovered slight condensation on one side of the hexagon casing, but the battery and PCB compartments were very dry.
This is by no means a comprehensive or representative test of water-resistence (that will come later), but it made us feel reassured about the design and durability of our product. We just want to share that with you.
We took some videos and will post those on our Youtube channel this evening -- please subscribe if you are interested in videos of beeping beacons in large bowls of water. If not, we understand.
Have a good weekend.
