SWAGTRON® Turns From Streets To Seas With New TSA-Compliant LF1 Electric Underwater Scooter

Share Article

The brand’s latest foray into water-based DPV (driver propulsion vehicles) is a compact electric diving scooter that can deliver 14.7 pounds of thrust for up to 90 minutes on a single battery charge and propel divers up to 3.35 miles per rounds.

Ride like a pro with a personal underwater scooter from Swagtron.

"Not only is the LF1 an underwater scooter, but it’s also a portable engine, that you can attach to any watercraft," says Chief Marketing Officer, Jason Wakefield. "Affix it to a paddleboat. Make your own electric kickboard. Or use it as a kayak propeller."

The LF1 by Swagtron holds the distinct honor of being one of the only electric underwater scooters with a TSA-compliant battery that’s approved to be taken on board a plane with you. For divers who are flying to their destination, traveling is as simple as disassembling the LF1 and stowing it in a backpack or carry on. Lightweight, the LF1 weighs just 5.07 pounds.

The LF1 is waterproof up to 131 feet (40 meters), letting divers of all experience levels dive deeper into bodies of fresh or saltwater, from swimming pools to oceans. The LF1 comes with a single-jet handgrip, wrist strap, and wireless remote control that can pair to and control up to 6 motor units simultaneously.

The LF1 was developed with a clear strategy: durability, usability, and flexibility. Its modular design lets divers modify and customize the electric water scooter based on your needs using a number of accessories (sold separately). Accessories include a dual jet rail kit, scuba mount kit, or multi-purpose mount kit.

Other undersea scooters are made primarily from plastic. But the LF1 electric diving scooter using an ultra-durable aircraft-grade aluminum shell that delivers the ruggedness and longevity other plastic water scooters simply cannot match. The front cap is composed of reinforced ABS materials, specifically designed to absorb direct impacts from drops. The high-precision, water-cooled motor with an aluminum heatsink is optimized for longevity, durability, and reliability in saltwater settings, thanks to the water-cooled motor with an aluminum heatsink. The propeller covers are made with fiberglass-reinforced vinyl. In the case of emergency, the rear propeller guard can be easily removed with tools (even underwater) to remove any obstructions that might get caught during exploration.

The LF1 uses our LiFePO4 battery technology with an enhanced safety profile. This battery technology is more efficient than traditional rechargeable batteries, able to be fully charged in two hours. It’s also fully removable, letting divers swap out the flat battery with a fresh, second battery (sold separately) to continue the underwater adventure. (The wireless remote control can also be fully charged in 90 minutes or less.)
