Waydoo is launching its new, portable underwater scooter through a Kickstarter campaign.
Named the Subnado, it is the world's smallest and lightest portable underwater scooter, weighing only 1.4 kilograms (~3.1 pounds) and is 38 centimeters (~15 inches) in length. The cylindrical aluminum body is six centimeters (~2.3 inches) in diameter, extending to seven centimeters (~2.8 inches) wide at the propeller guard.
Its profile allows it easily fit within a backpack and comes equipped with a 98Wh lithium-ion battery that will enable it to run for up to 56 minutes on a single charge. Compared to another underwater scooter, the Sublue Tini, the Subnado is 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) lighter and can run continuously for 11 more minutes. With its 100W PD fast charger, the Subnado takes 1.2 hours to charge.
The Waydoo Subnado achieves a maximum thrust of 6.5 kilograms (14.3 pounds), making it capable of propelling a diver weighing 65 kilograms (143.3 pounds) at 1.4 meters per second (5 kilometers per hour, or 3.1 miles per hour). For even more speed, divers can attach a Subnado to each hand to reach speeds of up to 2 meters per second.
