We are now selling the SMBCi in combination with the Easifil adaptor only (no mini-cylinder). This is obviously a much cheaper option and a mini-cylinder can be purchased to fit to the SMB at a later date if required
The Easifil inflator stems do not have a locking groove. This prevents the hose from becoming attached to the SMB at any point during inflation and so avoids the danger of any sudden increase in buoyancy to the diver. The hose will be connected only as long as it is held in place by the diver as shown.
