SUUNTO Recalls tank pods
Just to this in my email:
We send this email to notify you of a product recall that requires your action.
Suunto has identified a potential safety risk affecting all Suunto Wireless Tank Pressure Transmitters and Suunto Tank PODs which wirelessly transmit tank air pressure to compatible Suunto dive computers. In two reported incidents, the exterior case of a Suunto Wireless Tank Pressure Transmitter have failed during regular dry land pressure testing. Although extremely rare, this represents a potential risk of injury, due to risk of bursting.
Diver safety is of highest importance to Suunto. Therefore, we have decided to initiate a recall of all Suunto Wireless Tank Pressure Transmitters and Suunto Tank PODs. Both of the known incidents happened to the Suunto Wireless Tank Pressure Transmitter. However, since the mechanical construction of these two products is very similar, we are also recalling the Tank PODs as a precaution.
Suunto will inspect and upgrade all the affected products via Suunto’s service network, free of charge for you. Do not use the affected products before they have been upgraded.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused by this. As a complementary service, we will provide a battery replacement free of charge and a one-year warranty from the date of inspection for all upgraded products.
