Sea Doo Aqua Ranger Sea Scooter is noted as an entry level device. A person can dive up to 30 feel using this DPV. The downside is that the battery can only last 1.5 hours and takes sixteen hours to recharge. With such a short battery span I tend to question the reliability of this equipment on a dive. I would be concerned that I would be in deep water and then find that my battery was out. I find that owners that intend to use this equipment need to invest in at least two battery packs as a backup method.
Also, in reviewing its website there is a collection of negative reviews. This raises a red flag that if a reviewer felt compelled to leave a negative review that the consumer that is looking at purchasing this product should take note of their concerns. By doing some in-depth research on this product at other web searches could educate the potential buyer if the concerns addressed is valid.
Also of great concern is that the warranty is only for six months. This short coverage indicates that the seller may not have faith enough in their product to stand behind a longer warranty.
The price is decent for the speed and light weightiness of this product. This feature would be attractive to people who are searching for equipment that craves portability.
Overall, I would recommend that the consumer do their homework before they purchase this product. Prove that the negative reviews that they are seeing are false. Ensure they understand this product will not stay charged for a long period of time.
