Hold your nose and try to blow air out of it and your ears will equalize, it's a game changer and the only way to dive past 10ft or so.

I already used it a number of times. It works very well, and is solidly built. Its a simple device that you can actually make out of about $30 worth of stuff (air compressor, bike tube valve, a container that can hold 6atm of pressure, an air compressor fitting, and that's it. First thing I did was dunk my seadweller in it to make sure it works as it should.

Pressure vessels fatigue over time, so while it might be fine now I'd be careful in the future, and 6 bar isn't anything to fvck with. The Comet is a famous case of this, and engineers didn't find out the problem until they built a jet-sized tank to put it through enough cycles to fatigue the metal

lol, like moocow said, you just "clear" your ears, hold nose and blow lightly. When I was a kid I hated that feeling too, not until I started scuba did I realize it's as simple as that. I've dove 170' before with no problem, doesn't feel any different than 10'.

Very nice, I almost pulled the trigger on a very similar automatic version of that watch, the quartz one is very nice and right in my wheel house of inexpensive but very nice watches.

WDE46 made a thread somewhere, I'm using the same setup. Super stealth and no splicing required, at least on the E46.

Well, according to the Dashcam subreddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/Dashcam/):

Cheapest: G1W-C(B) ($56 USD)
Best value: Xiaomi Yi Dashcam ($70 USD)
Discreet: A119 ($90 USD)
Versatile: Mobius ($75 USD)
Budget Dual Cam: BlackSys CF-100 ($95 USD)
Discrete Dual Cam: Blackvue DR650GW-2CH ($355 USD)
Night vision: Street Guardian SG9665GC ($209.95 USD)
Taxi/Uber Cam: Transcend DP520 ($195 USD)

I've always been a fan of the Blackvue's myself though because of the cylindrical shape and the possibility of fitting it up above the rear view mirror, plus, they seem to be the most popular. I have noticed a lot of people going with the Thinkware models though. Apparently this seems to be the most popular place for reviews: https://dashcamtalk.com/

I have this one and it works perfect. I never even have to think about it as it turns on with car ignition. Continuous looping and it has really good low light video.
