    I know these are fairly specialist cells that they probably don't sell much of outside of government contracts but the last set I bought in 2020 were $110 each. Will be interesting to see if cells in general are headed this way or if this is just price gouging a limited market.
    Add in some slime and gas you should be coming in at about 38 per helium dive
    Plus all the other usual expenses

    So probably less than your hourly rate.
    Or not.

    Cells are a killer tho
    Standard cell you would be looking at maybe 10 off each dive depending on numbers per year.

    AP stuff still looks like good value
    Cells and lime up about 50% over 15/18 years

    Good thing is the cells have a 3.5 year life so it might work out OK. I was swapping them every 18 months when they were cheap so I guess I'm keeping them for double that now. It's just a bit of a hit up front, near a grand to get the unit up and running again. Or I can convert it to run narkedat90 cells, it's not hard just a bit of fannying around with the cables. It's cheaper and a bit less hassle if a cell dies early or something. I'm not planning anything major, I'm just pissing about on shore dives in Scotland this year.

    I'd love to but after not doing any CCR diving over the last three years I don't think it's a wise move

    I have 3 dives across 2 weekends planned for it in May. The water will be cold so for the 1st dive I will probably keep around the 55m mark and keep TTS to less than 60 mins.

    Anyone that claims they cannot do 55m with a 60 min TTS should not call themselves a CCR tech diver
