Using its built-in powerful electric motor, the SCUBAJET compact jet-engine delivers a more flexible way to enjoy your favorite water sports, and its adapters allow it to fit for SUP, diving, canoeing and snorkeling.
The SCUBAJET is a high-performance and portable electric jet-engine designed for water sports gear. As we can see from the images, the jet-engine shows off a compact and streamlined appearance and it measures only 58cm (approx 22 inches) length by 7.2cm (approx 2.8 inches) diameter and weighs just 3kg (approx 6.6lbs), so you can easily take it anywhere you go, and using included adapters, you can easily attach the engine onto your stand up paddle board, dinghy, kanu, or just hold it in your hands for diving and snorkeling.
The electric jet-engine comes equipped with a jet-powered motor instead of regular propeller motors, so it’s safe for kids, and its auto-shut off system stops the engine immediately if you fall into the water of when it gets out of the water. Furthermore, the jet-engine comes with a remote with threw buttons that allows you to fully control your SCUBAJET including increasing or decreasing speed, select different speeds, and stopping engine.
Moreover, the portable jet engine comes in four battery capacities including two internal battery options: 200Wh and 400Wh, and two external battery options: 800Wh and 1200Wh. The internal battery offers up up 120 minutes of battery life while the external battery pack delivers up to 540 minutes of battery life, and multiple engine mappings are designed for slow scuba diving, short high speed sprints, padding support or surfing without paddle.
The crowdfunding campaign for SCUBAJET is in progress via Kickstarter. Pledging €590 (approx US$658) will let you own the jet-engine with 200Wh internal rechargeable battery. It will be shipped in March 2017.
