    I am looking into getting my first O2 analyzer and was wondering if there are any that I should stay away from.

    I have been looking at Oxycheq and the new Divesoft Solo analyzer. My plan is to get into trimix dives in the next 5 years, so I have been thinking of getting an analyzer that does both O2 and He from the beginning and not have to buy another one later down the road.

    I would hold off on getting the He analyzer until you actually need it. A lot can change in 5 years!

    If you are handy with a soldering iron, grab that el cheapo kit and run with it!

    A trimix analyser is a big, expensive thing. I always take by small, cheapish Analox O2 with me wherever I dive, on the boat etc, only taking my trimix one if diving trimix and then only if we are getting fills on the boat.

    BTW Analysers have consumables, the O2 sensor lasts two or three years. They are a significant fraction of the cost.

    I've made this one: O2 Analyser It was very easy.

    Actually. I've made three. Two for a friend and one for myself.
