Atomic Aquatics Scuba Heat Exchanger

Regulator icing isn’t a hazard only when diving beneath polar ice-caps. It can occur in water of 10° or more, making it something of which to beware at, say, UK inland sites.

Scuba Heat fits between most regulator first and second stages and is claimed to greatly reduce icing risk without impairing breathing performance.

The unit, designed for easy installation and requiring no batteries, costs £360.
