Transport and maintenance

Transportation by air :

Airline regulations regarding the transport of external batteries are strict but unevenly applied between airports and countries. As a general rule, you will only be allowed to carry your lithium battery in the aircraft cabin. Li-ion batteries are not allowed in the hold due to the risk of leakage. In the cabin, it is recommended to transport them in a plastic bag or in their original packaging.

In the cabin, only lithium batteries with a capacity of less than 32000mAh/5V* (> 100 Wh and ≤ 160 Wh) are allowed. The number of batteries is limited to 2 if your additional batteries have a capacity between 20.000 mAh and 32.000 mAh.

The sublue battery has a capacity of 11,000 mAh – 11.1V, or 122.1 Wh. You can carry up to two batteries per passenger without prior declaration.

Contact your airline for any checks before your trip.

Daily maintenance :

After each use in sea water, it is important to desalinate the scooter by cleaning it with fresh water. The most sensitive points are the battery contacts and the propellers. The battery and scooter are completely sealed, so ideally you should immerse the scooter in a tub of fresh water after each use for several minutes, running it several times. This will help to remove the dirt from the propeller shaft. However, for optimum cleaning, it is best to remove the propeller unit and rinse it thoroughly under fresh water. You will also remove salt particles, sand and other elements (algae, hair, etc.) For intensive use of your scooter, it is advisable to use a lubricant regularly, see video below) For wintering: Recharge the battery every 2 months or so to maintain its longevity and efficiency. Lubricate the propellers and rotor as described in the video below. Store in a dry and ventilated area (ideally away from the boat to avoid a salty environment). Corrosion is the enemy of electronics, special care must be taken to maintain the warranty of the scooter. No warranty can be applied if the scooter is corroded (e.g. battery with a greenish deposit, propeller impossible to remove from the engine block, propeller impossible to turn either manually or electrically, sand or deposits in the propellers, etc.)
