Scorkl Is A Mini-Scuba Tank That You Can Refill Via A Floor Pump

Small scuba tanks aren’t new – divers have been using them as backup tanks for years. While the Scorkl works much like those redundant scuba systems, it also allows refilling via a floor pump, so you can fill it with air using just a little elbow grease.

 

That’s right, you don’t a tank full of air to refill this mini-cylinder – just push down a few times on the high-pressure pump to fill it with 10 minutes’ worth of air. Whether you’re using it as a backup tank or a main tank for short, shallow dives, this thing should make for an excellent addition to your diving gear.
 
 
The Scorkl uses the same breathe-on-demand single-stage regulator employed by similar backup tanks in the market, so it should work right off the bat without any problems. A small pressure gauge allows you to check how much air is left at any time, ensuring you’ll never get caught off guard with zero air in the tank. It’s compact, too, measuring just slightly bigger than a standard beer bottle, so you’ll never have any difficulty carrying it underwater.
 
 
The air pump, by the way, boasts 3,000 psi, ensuring you can fill the tank with air without having to do hard labor, while an integrated filter removes moisture and impurities before pushing the air through the tank. In case you prefer refilling from a standard-size tank, they also throw in a refill adapter for doing just that.
 
A Kickstarter campaign is currently running for the Scorkl. You can reserve a unit for pledges starting at $199 without the air pump and $398 with the air pump included.
