Kevin's Mod's and Battery Making Page
This following pages detail Kevin "Mr. Dude" Juergensen's method for making your own battery for the Biomarine CCR1000, CCR155, MK15, or MK16 rebreather. This is not the same battery which is used in the BMR500. Kevin also shows some schematics of changes he has made to his personal unit. Neither Kevin, Northwood Designs, Inc. or anyone involved in any way with this site accepts any responsibility for what you do with this information. You *MUST* read this entire page and the disclaimer to see the information and you *MUST* accept responsibility.
Legal Notice and Disclaimer:
Batteries are very serious things in a rebreather. If yours stops working in the middle of a dive, you could be dead-meat. This guide is not meant to teach you how to think, it is designed for those rebreather divers, who want to save themselves a bunch of money by making their own batteries. Nevertheless, don't try this if you don't have a good knowledge of battery handling, soldering, and are willing to take the risk that your workshop battery craps out in the middle of a 5 hour deco. The same could be said for modifications to your unit, on the following pages are detailed modifications made to increase my safety and enjoyment of my unit. These modifications could also kill you. Everything here can kill you. Are you getting the picture? Everything you do with his guide, and your rebreather after reading this, you do at your own risk, OK? Great.
