The Aqua Lung Dive Computer i200 is the first dive-computer of Mama Monster. She bought it a year ago at a local dive shop in Dumaguete and now the battery was getting pretty weak and on the last dives in Apo Island, it died on her. So, it was time to change the battery of the Aqualung i200 dive computer.
Why did we buy the Aqua Lung i200
When Dive Monster Sr. buys stuff, or gives advice, what to buy, he always considers that we are in the Philippines and spare parts are hard to get. Most shops are good in selling, but customer support is not part of the business. Good, that the replacement battery for the Aqua Lung i200 Dive Computer is available in some Shops in Dumaguete and also online for a fraction of the price.
Battery Size of the i200
The size of the i200 battery is a CR2430. That is a standard size and can be bought in many online shops. We placed a link to a Duracell CR 2430 just below, so you get one of the best Coin Batteries you can get.

While it is recommended by Aqua Lung to buy a full replacement kit, it was the first battery change, and as the dive computer was never opened and always was handled with care, the O-ring should still be in great condition. Therefore, a simple battery change should do the trick without causing problems.
Dive Monster Jr. did a great job with her own Aqua Lung i100 dive computer, so it was her job to replace the battery for Mama Monster, too. We mean her dive computer, not Mama Monster´s battery. She still runs on gasoline, not on electric.

Love & Full-Bat
Yeah, I 200 is a lousy product and failed after the battery change
It is usually due to the person who makes the battery change, and does not know what he/she does.
But it is of course easier to blame the computer.
