EPIRB Battery Replacement Decision

After discovering the battery on my EPIRB had recently expired, I was faced with the question of whether to replace the battery or purchase a new unit. With a little research I soon discovered the cost or battery replacement was near to, or even exceed, the cost of a whole new EPIRB. So with further research I discovered the KTI SA1. This EPIRB has a 10 year battery life and 20 year shelf life. Compared to the 6 year battery of more expensive units, this is a considerable advantage. And battery replacement cost is less than half that of a new EPIRB. Best of all, the EPIRB is less than $300 from Townsville Marine. For more details check out the video below.
