Using the Cressi Battery Kit
Replacing the battery in the Cressi Leonardo or Giotto dive computer
is easily done by the user, not requiring special service. It must be
done any time the instrument's display shows the run-down battery symbol.
NOTE: When replacing the battery, check its housing; should any signs of moisture be
visible, please have the instrument checked by an authorised service centre.
Should you notice any anomaly in functioning, do not use the instrument to dive and
have it checked by an authorised Cressi retailer.
WARNING: By replacing the battery, all information relating to de-saturation, time
and date will be cancelled. Reset the time and date, in order to get correct entries in
your computer's logbook. Please do not replace the battery when de-saturation is in
progress, since all information relating to de-saturation computing would be cancelled.
In this case, please check the amount of de-saturation hours and do not dive after
battery replacement during a corresponding amount of hours. After battery replacement,
all settings go back to the latest value set by the user. Time and date must be reset.
- To replace the battery, unscrew the battery cover on the back of the instrument, using a coin.
- Remove the lid and check the battery and its housing. Should you note traces of corrosion due to water entry, have the instrument checked by an authorised Cressi retailer.
- If everything appears in good condition, remove the battery from its housing by holding the computer face down.
- Replace the battery complying with its polarity (an incorrect polarity may damage the instrument).
- Before closing the cover, check that there is no soiling on its seat and apply a thin layer of silicone grease (not supplied) to the battery cover seal.
NOTE: Different factors affect the battery
life. For example: time of storage before acquiring
the instrument, dive time, use of backlight,
battery’s quality (whose average life
depends on temperature and other factors).
NOTE: Do not over tighten the battery
cover! Over tightening of the cover does
not create a better seal; to the contrary, it
can result in cracking of the cover or difficulty
in removing the cover in the future.
NOTE: Make sure that the instrument is watertight!
WARNING: Any anomaly or water infiltration
due to incorrect battery replacement will void the warranty.
