Am I right in thinking that the big difference between the Meg and the KISS is that the Meg is a solenoid operated unit, with a ppO2 set point. Whereas the KISS is more like an SCR, in that it has a trickle feed of gas that is below the rate of use - and the adding of O2 is done manually?

Presumably with using Vplanner, CD, your redundancy comes in with multiple profiles - e.g. one assuming that your ppO2 set point is stuck to through the dive, with a higher set point for deco. Then your back up would be a deco schedule assuming that you have to switch to OC bailout?

I trained with a guy on an Optima. I wasn't impressed with it. The electronics eat batteries (the guy was advised to take them out of the handsets at night) <snip>
