    I remember saying that it would be charged via USB. Curious about the connector on the DC side. Mini-B? Micro-C? I hope not proprietary.

    Ah, pins. How's the connection with the NATO strap? Looks like the original desgn was regular pin straps, not crossing the back. Go dive it and let us know how it works out. Compare conservative factor NDLs to Bulhmann if you're able

    It works well as the clip holds it in place securely. My daughters computer relies on a magnetic connector and it barley holds on. I don't have any diving planned in the immediate future so someone else will beat me to any dive reports. I will say the menu is intuitive and easy to follow.

    Is that an FTDI chipset in that connector?

    Yes.

    Back in the late 90's when Fred Dart had one of the earliest USB devices, I'd never expect the longevity and wide variety of applications that he has achieved.
