SCORKL has announced the launch of ‘SCORKL 2.0 – Electric’, featuring an all-new SCORKL Electric Compressor and SCORKL Battery Pack, enabling automatic refills of the brand’s portable underwater breathing apparatus, at the touch of a button.
Available for pre-order via the product launch platform Kickstarter, ‘SCORKL 2.0 – Electric’ is SCORKL’s first new release since their original James Bond-esque underwater breathing technology first launched in 2017, selling to over 65 countries worldwide, and received USD$2m in pre-orders.
After almost two years of research and development, the SCORKL Electric Compressor and SCORKL Battery Pack have been designed to offer automatic, easy refills of the SCORKL device, in a matter of minutes.
“Traditional SCUBA air compressors are prohibitively heavy and expensive, meaning they can only be stored and operated in dive stores or in a garage. The SCORKL Electric Compressor, in stark contrast, is lightweight, inexpensive and portable. Not only can you plug it into the wall, but you can power it from a boat or car battery as well,” explained SCORKL creator and founder, David Hallamore.
Take your adventure completely off-grid with the SCORKL Battery Pack
For SCORKLERS wanting to go completely off-grid, there’s also the new SCORKL Battery Pack. With a streamlined design and marine-grade fittings, the SCORKL Battery Pack uses everyday 18V power tool batteries to power the SCORKL Electric Compressor. Compatible with Milwaukee, Makita, DeWalt and Bosch batteries, the SCORKL Battery Pack also features an LED light and USB Ports to charge mobile devices. With the SCORKL Battery Pack, SCORKLERS can now refill effortlessly, anywhere on the planet.
Underwater freedom for everyone, made electric
For a brand that believes in making underwater freedom accessible to everyone, ‘SCORKL 2.0 – Electric’ takes this freedom to a whole new level. While previously there were three options for refilling your SCORKL device: from a large scuba tank, a traditional dive compressor, or SCORKL’s own hand pump, the SCORKL Electric Compressor now offers total ease of use.
“I’ve always believed that every boat needs a SCORKL for things like unfouling a propellor, cleaning under the hull, moving an anchor, and of course, incredible underwater experiences. And now, every boat needs a SCORKL Electric Compressor for effortless, unlimited refills,” Hallamore stated.
Passionate about the water, and the adventures within it, Hallamore explains, “I grew up around the water, and in the water. I’m a swimmer, a boatie, a SCUBA diver, a free diver, a rower, a water polo player, and a sailor. I love the water, and the feeling of breathing underwater is truly incredible. My dream is to give everybody else the opportunity to experience that. SCORKL makes it possible— regardless of age or experience, anyone can now feel that indescribable freedom.”
