Scorkl Underwater Breathing Device

Editor's Rating
4.9?
Discovered on 2018-02-24

Discover our planet below the surface with the Scorkl Underwater Breathing Device. This incredible device is compact and lightweight making it wonderfully portable. Complete with a pump, the Scorkl gives you an impressive 10 minutes of breathing time underwater. Simply give the device a pump and you’re good to go. At the top of the Scorkl is a mouthpiece. You place it in your mouth and hold the device with your hand. You can also see the pressure gauge on the side so you know how much time you have left. Because it’s refillable, you can use and reuse the Scorkl. With this device, you can remain underwater much longer than normal. If you have a camera, you can capture the intricacies of the planet at great depths. The Scorkl has a cylinder held to the same standards as SCUBA equipment so you know it’s durable and effective.

I think the story is repeated.

Good to hear from you again David. Still looking forward to the product. Problem is us backers becoming like kids on christmas eve as soon as first stated delivery date nears or is passed. Keep the faith and we’ll try to do the same (but you will probably read lots of complaints during winter and spring). Best thing to do is stay in contact even if it’s just to post that everything is moving along at a very slow pace. I would suggest bi weekly updates.
David Hallamore
Hi everyone. Thanks for your patience as always. I posted a project update back on November 29 and another update today (January 23). They both will have been emailed directly to your inbox if you are a backer but you can also access them here too: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1897301425/scorkl-breathe-underwater-with-total-freedom/updates In response to the most recent questions and comments: -- @Matt Whitley Thanks Matt I really appreciate your show of support. As you say, it is essential that the quality of manufacturing is spot on. The dangers associated with breathing underwater demand it. Going through the international certification process will ensure the reliability and quality of the SCORKL. The trade-off is unfortunately having to wait for the process to run its course but it will be worth it in the end @Jonathan Seely, @Hugh Zimmerman, @Alejandro Russo, @Paras Gravas, @Jean-Vincent Javaud, @Albert, @Edouard Feltesse, @Chris Pennisi, @Luuk Lemmens, @Bryan Lloyd Anderson, @Selcuk Kerem Okman, @David Stansell, @Wutango Media, @Marco Oudshoorn, @Patrick Villeneuve, @Hugh Zimmerman Sorry all that it sometimes takes me a while to respond to update requests and comments. My focus is on shipping all the orders as soon as I can, but I try to post an update, and respond to comments here, about once every four-six weeks. The updates get emailed directly to your inbox and can also be found here (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1897301425/scorkl-breathe-underwater-with-total-freedom/updates). As mentioned in the Nov 29 update, the new shipping date is June 2018. It’s taken longer than expected to go through the international certification process. Most of this time is just waiting for the laboratories to become available to book testing, for the testing itself, and the time taken to receive the official report/certificate. It’s slow going but essential. I appreciate that I initially hoped for a 2017 delivery but really appreciate your patience thank you. @Singla
Merci beaucoup pour votre patience Singla. Je suis désolé que mon français n'est pas bon, mais j'espère que vous avez été en mesure de lire les mises à jour (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1897301425/scorkl-breathe-underwater-with-total-freedom/updates) dans Anglais. J'ai hâte de recevoir votre commande dès que possible. @Calvin Sean, @Jason Rosenberry, @Will Randles, @Mikael Ahremark Thanks for the support guys! I am doing my best to move everything along as quickly as I can and really appreciate your patience and understanding. We’ll get there eventually! @Michael Owen, @Joacim Lagerqvist, @M I try to avoid commenting on other campaigns since I don’t have access to their products myself or all the information but the key reason the SCORKL campaign is taking extra time to ship is because we are going through a comprehensive international certification process which has strict product performance and factory quality control requirements. We are also custom-designing and manufacturing most of the key components (as opposed to sourcing pre-existing ones) __ Please feel free to keep posting your questions and comments. I look forward to getting everyone's order out as soon as I can, and updating with progress reports along the way. David
Matt Whitley
Thankyou for taking the time to do the extra steps of certification Yes you could have skipped it and delivered a product that was not tested/ safe and done it before Xmas I speak for a lot of people when I say thanks for going the extra step and taking the time to do it right, when we are 10m underwater we will be rest assured We are using a safe and approved product of high standard, our life is in the products hands and having this certification process ensures we are being as safe as can be in an extreme sport environment, Thanks keep up the good work
miles
he must be to busy travelling the world with his 1.6 million us dollars he has got so far!!!!
Jonathan Seely
It is not about getting a "prize" at the end of the campaign. If the maker's goal was to actually follow through with his or her idea, I am ok with the risk. BUT update MUST be timely and informative -good or bad. Silence might be a sign of fraud. PLEASE UPDATE
Hugh Zimmerman
"I’ll also post an update here on Kickstarter approximately once every month or so to keep everyone up to date with progress. The next one will be posted around mid January" Super excited for this and don't want to seem clingy, but an update would be nice, even if it is as simple as "thanks for patience, we are progressing, expanded update coming
Alejandro Russo
First project I backed which went radio silent
Paras Gravas
We need news. Any news. Bad or good.
Jean-Vincent Javaud
Hi, Some news from you would be apreciated. Regards
miles

Ricardo Barrios
Any news on possible ship date???
Singla
bonne année à vous et bonne santé
j’espère que tout se passe bien pour le projet me tarde de recevoir, vivement de vos nouvelles
Albert
what's new? I still have not received the goods?
Cheers
Edouard Feltesse
Hi David
A monthly update maybe?
Cheers
Calvin Sean
We take a chance with this sort of thing and there’s always a remote prospect of these kickstart projects ever really taking off. Never invest what you’re prepared to lose. Just put it down to experience and move on, you can only be caught once unless you’re a real sucker. Nice one David:-)
Jason Rosenberry
I am amused at how so many act like there is no risk in this a new business venture. You are supposed to weight the risks BEFORE you back a project. So shut up and stop spreading fear trolls. Sit and wait cause that’s all you can do. To late to complain. Ya paid for the ticket now take the ride. If you’ve never lost a few grand in a business venture then u haven’t invested in many. It ain’t over til the creator says it’s over. Period.
Avoid_The_Tiko
Called it yet again... Lmfao I'm okay if someone steals my $1 but I feel sorry for you all who invested hundreds
Chris Pennisi
Hi David, can you please reply to people wanting to get feedback on refunds. I've done some digging and prefer not to contact the other business ventures you have to chase for an answer. Please reply back to people here within 48 hours. Thanks.
Romain Dec
So, no gears, no refunds... what a shame... enjoy our money !!!
Will Randles
Thanks for the update. This is what kickstarter is all about. Supporting new ideas and seeing them come alive! Good luck with the certification process, I will be happy knowing SCORKL has been tested properly and suitable in many conditions.

Due to Michael Owens comment I checked the "portable lungs" and I'm also really wondering that a product thats almost the same like the "SCORKL" is released already and ready for shipment today but the Scorkl needs so much longer than expected. Tbh I would rather take my money back and buy the "portable lungs" because I've really been hoping to use the Scorkl in Cuba next year in January, which first was promised to could happen... I'm kinda disappointed now.
Robert kadunc
Well this is frustrating news. I'd have made a complete different decision if I'd have known my 1300$ would be tied up for a year. The promises in my opinion were just "too good to be true" looking at it now. Only initially wanting 30k but then getting millions seems to really play a part. Development research should have been done a little more before crowd funding. Im starting to feel deceived. Maybe thats me just being paranoid.
Joacim Lagerqvist
I was also pondering the portable lung but decided against it. Please explain why this one will take so much longer.
Michael Owen
I encourage EVERYONE to type “portable lungs” into your Kickstarter search box and see for yourselves. As I said, my tanks and pump arrived TODAY. THERE IS NO EXCUSE WHY THIS SCORKL IS GOING TO TAKE 7 MONTHS MORE!!! Perhaps it’s all the jet setting with $1.3 million in Andrew’s pocket all of a sudden? Especially since he was only chasing $30K (The quality of the ‘portable lungs’ tanks and pump and shoulder bag look exceptional)
Michael Owen
If the backers, attackers and attackers of backers could give it a rest for a minute... David. I backed another Kickstarter called Dive with portable lungs. The Kickstarter was successful on the 5th August 2017. The tanks and pump arrived to me, here in Australia TODAY. TODAY Your campaigns are close enough to be loosely called replicas of each other. WHY is the Scorkl going to take at least another 7 months to arrive?? Straightforward question - straightforward answer please!!
Mikael Ahremark
Before leaving bad comments, put yourself in David's shoes and reconsider... Communication can always be better, but that doesn't let us get the gear sooner.
Keep up the good work David!
Louis Ross
Very unfortunate to hear another more than 6 months delay. Can you comment on what is the different between readily available commercial products like Spare Air and your product? Thanks.
David Terrell
June? Really? How can you not offer refunds?
cita kemala
hello...please update and respond my msg
Luuk Lemmens
Please update. Due to your lack of updates and communication, I don't feel comfortable backing this project anymore. 9/10 comments are either question to send us an update or communicate more with us. Is it really that hard to keep us in the loop?
miles
he is replying to comments on indiegogo just not on here :(
Bruce Huang
Hi~David
I've ordered my BUDDY PACK B around this year July period, and around September time I received a confirmation email from Backed about mailing address confirmations(response needed)..... I kind of ignored it, and my reward is not here yet, the address is correct on my account, just send it as soon as possible when you got my email. All the best Bruce

"I’ll continue to post an update here once a month which means that the next one is due around mid-November." Almost December
Bryan Lloyd Anderson
Please update. Shakes my trust in the final product when you can't update as often as you promised. Makes me wonder if I'll ever get what I purchased.
Selcuk Kerem Okman
Update please , thank you
