D6 battery sucks

Post Number:#1  Postby nic » Wed Jun 27, 2007 11:10 pm

Crap. Battery dead within 9 months with only 31 dives. Complained to Suunto & A&L - bolayan. They say I 'played' with the backlight, alarm, buttons & etc. The truth is i've got backlight & alarm disabled since day 1. Suunto 2 years warranty does not cover battery because they can't control dealers stock keeping. Burnt RM130. Anyone else had a similar battery prob? any lawyers in de house?

Dang! Sorry to hear that.

Luckily I do not have that problem. I use an Oceanic ATOM and I change my own battery. ;)

Finally found someone who is not using a Suunto. Bro, I am new to diving and am looking around for equipment, everyone and I mean everyone is telling me that I should be looking at the D6 or D9 (yeah right). I did not know that there were any other brands until I accidently found some on another website. Please, let me know if Suunto lives up to all that hype or if there are better alternatives out there. Thank you.
