Power-Sonic is a proud sponsor of The ’24 Hour Bender’
The world record attempt for the longest cold water scuba dive…
It takes place on Saturday 20th – Sunday 21st April 2013 Strangford Lough, Northern Ireland to increase the awareness and to raise money for charities (Marine Conservation Society; Ulster Wildlife Trust Living Seas; Royal National Lifeboat Institution & Irish Whale and Dolphin Group).
Fergal Glynn is the Lead Diver for the attempt. SCUBA diving since the age of 10, Fergal has been an experienced member of QUBSAC (Queen’s University of Belfast Sub-Aqua Club) for over 5 years. He has dived in a variety of conditions and locations and for a variety of purposes. During his time with the club Fergal has held the committee positions of Training Officer, Engineer, Diving Officer and President.
Fergal will be assisted by an experienced team of support divers consisting of current and past QUBSAC members as well as a select few experienced divers affiliated with the club. There will also be a large surface support team made up of club members.
The current record stands at 13 hours 4 minutes, set by Paul Devane in Killary, Co. Galway. The original record had been set by his brother Declan, in memory of his son. The QUBSAC team, led by Fergal Glynn, will attempt to set a new record – 24 hours.
Requirements for record dive:
- Must be in sea of 10m depth
- 20mins of dive must be beneath 6m
- Water temperature lower than 15C
- At no time can the diver break the surface
Fergal will be wearing SCUBA (Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Appartus), with no connection to the surface. Special equipment will allow him to change gas cylinders underwater and he will be wearing a very good exposure suit system to cope with the cold. Most of the equipment consists of items Fergal uses on a regular basis, with some additions and modifications.
He will be accompanied at all times by (apart from the support diver) a light and camera system to record and stream the event live.
Power-Sonic have supplied the QUBSAC team with three PS121000 (12V 100Ah) batteries to act as back-up power for the gen-set they will be using to power the event coverage.

Our standard range Sealed Lead Acid batteries are valve regulated, have a spill proof construction which allows trouble-free and safe operation in almost any position*. The sealed system eliminates electrolyte checking and water addition too. Special vents, high purity lead (Pb) and grid alloys assure a low self-discharge rate and consequently a long shelf life. Storing the batteries at lower temperatures can also enhance the shelf life characteristics even further which make our batteries versatile in almost all conditions.
For more information and to view downloadable data sheets of our Sealed Lead Acid battery ranges please visit our website.
