    Drysuit heated vest connector options

    What are everyone's thoughts on heated suit connectors?

    Making a new canister for my partner so can use anything really.


    EO seem unreliable
    I use the lola connector and valve on my diy canister and the sealing caps are a bit fiddly/easy to lose

    What other options do people use?

    I would agree eo are unreliable but you can mitigate that through good care and maintenance. You also have compatibility benefits that way.

    Back in the day I used to use Buccaneer IP68 connectors on home made gear. Never had an issue.

    Agree with Graham, E/O cables if you use contralube at regular intervals are bullet proof. Its the disconnecting underwater, especially salt, which kills them if not flushed and lubed.
