    I don't know if this qualifies as "repair", but, instead of paying upwards of 10 bucks for a kit, we can buy most batteries for less than a buck, if we knew the type, plus an o-ring once in a while, if we knew the size.

    So I go first:

    • Aladin Pro, 1st generation, with no oil:
      • LS14500, soldered
      • 2-016, no lube
    • Cressi Archimede 2, IST PG 3000, Zeagle N2ition, Tusa IQ-700, Dive Rite Nitek Duo:
      • CR2032
      • 2-025, lube

    Others inputs?

    Doesn't look like there's a lot of interest. Let's give it another try:

    • Mares M1:
      • 2 x AAA
      • 2-017, lube

    The Oceanic Data Plus uses a 2-023 o-ring and a pair of 2032 batteries. I'm fairly sure this combination is also used in the Oceanic air computers (hockey puck design) of that vintage.

    In my notes, I have the Oceanic VEO xxx using a 2-026 O-ring and it does use a 2450 battery.

    Suunto Vytec/Vyper and probably all the old puck style Suunto range:

    CR2450 - 20p here in the UK
    2-026 - lube

    Excellent idea

    Oceanic Data Plus 2
    O-ring = 2-023
    1 each Lithium Battery 1/2 AA 3.6 volts

    Edit:
    There's an add currently running on flea bay 2X Battery Kit Oceanic Prodigy Datamax Data Plus Matrix 100 Master Dacor Omni | eBay for a battery and o-ring set for the following computers:


    Datamax sport
    Data 100
    Matrix
    Matrix Master
    Data Plus
    Prodigy
    Dacor Omni
    Genesis ReSource
    Genesis source

    As there is only one size o-ring shown, chances are they all take a 2-023. The batteries have CR 2032 stamped on them.

    The Oceanic OCS takes a 2450 battery. I'm not sure how to check what size the o-ring is, but it also comes with a small amount of lube.

    Benjamin,

    If you can, measure the inside diameter of the o-ring and post it. We'll try to figure it out from there......thanks.

    The o-ring appears to be 38.5mm or 39mm in diameter. I'll have to find a micrometer for a more accurate measurement and report back.
