We offer independent recreational and technical dive training at all levels of certification. We also have tons of fun

The Piranha Concept:


The Piranha is the lightest, most powerful, dive scooter we could build; and to maximize utility for both technical and recreational divers we have made it modular. With neutrally buoyant battery modules you can build and dive the scooter you need. Designed and Manufactured in the USA.


New Power Tool Battery:


Same size, same power, yet uses power tool batteries available anywhere, and you can travel by air.   This battery module allows you to take 4 power tool batteries, install them in the tube to create one large battery and dive the Piranha just like you always have.  The module contains a safety circuit that protects each battery from damage and will indicate with LED’s if one pack is bad or not fully charged. Batteries are a common size available worldwide and there is no need to purchase them from Dive Xtras, now or in the future,  when you need to replace them.


Compatible with 5Ah, 20v (USA only) or 18v batteries that fit the DCB interface.

Tested with the following batteries:

  • 4 x Enegitech 20V 5.0Ah Lithium Battery
  • 4 x Batteriol 20V 5.0Ah Lithium Battery
  • 4 x Dewalt DCB205 (USA) 20v max 5 Ah (Highest Performance In Testing)
  • 4 x Dewalt DCB184 18v XR (Highest Performance In Testing)

**Batteries and chargers not supplied unless requested.**


NOW ! Air Travel Approved:


Each Lithium power tool battery is within the size limit allowed for Air travel (100 Wh).  By following the relevant travel requirments for Lithium batteries you can travel wherever you like with your Piranha and power tool battery.


Add Batteries For More Runtime:


The Piranha is designed out of the gate to be modular. With self contained neutrally buoyant battery packs and a simple cam-strap securing the modular sections you can easily build the scooter you need for the dive. For every battery you add, your run-time increases respectively and your speed and power stay the same.


Lightweight Yet Powerful:


The Piranha is the lightest DPV on the market weighing only 25lb/11kg. You no longer need an 85lb scooter

to get 2 hours of run time. It’s easy to carry, too with the integrated carry handle. Nothing could be easier.


Neutral Buoyancy out of the box:


The Piranha DPV is designed to be ready to dive in a neutrally buoyant configuration for both fresh and saltwater, right out of the box. To achieve this, each module is pre-weighted at the factory with lead shot for fresh water, and three stainless steel weight plates are installed with thumbscrews for saltwater. Each weight plate corresponds to a module of the complete DPV (019-7003 – Nose, 019-12009 – Tail, and 019-12010 – Battery). All Piranhas are shipped from the factory with all three weight plates installed, however please note that both the Battery and Tail weight plate are installed on the battery module. When diving the Piranha in a P2 or larger configuration in saltwater, simply leave both the Tail and Battery weight plate installed on the battery module closest to the tail, and remove the larger Tail weight plate from each subsequent battery module while leaving the smaller Battery weight plate installed on them. To configure for freshwater, remove all of the stainless steel weight plates from the DPV and reinstall the thumbscrews for safekeeping.
