Aqua Lung is conducting a voluntary product update of select Powerline inflators. Powerline inflators are found on all Aqua Lung Buoyancy Compensators and the Apeks Black Ice Buoyancy Compensator. If you have purchased an Aqua Lung BCD/Apeks Black Ice since January 1, 2015, it will need to be inspected to determine if it meets the specific criteria and requires updating. Aqua Lung is concerned that a failure may occur during a dive, causing the Powerline to continue inflating after the inflation button has been released, increasing the potential of an uncontrolled ascent. While there have been reports of this occurring underwater, there have not been any reported injuries, and Aqua Lung believes that a voluntary safety notice is the safe and prudent thing to do.

Inflators beginning with an H date code need to be serviced – Requires an Update

Inflators with an H date code with 2-dots has been updated at the factory – No further action required

Button covers with a center dot indicate the inflator has been updated – No further action required

Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using their BCs with Powerline inflators with a date code beginning with an H. Bring the BCD to your nearest authorized Aqua Lung Dive Retailer or Dive Center. They will be able to update your Powerline inflator for you. The replacement is made under warranty and you will not incur any charges.
