The video States it is fully submersible. I would think that to mean waterproof. Not sure how far.

No, 10 meters is about 30 feet and its not 10 meters its 3. I am sure he misspoke thinking 10 feet and saying 10 meters. And it is said to weigh a kilo, i.e. 2 and a quarter pounds.

Right. So its waterproof.
How does one charge the batteries? With my ctx Im always concerned about that O-ring. Has anyone had hands on this machine?

I'm curious about the battery situation too. It doesn't look to have the large battery pod of the CTX. I'm wondering if its entirely contained in the cell-phone sized control head.

The battery is inside the grip and stays there I believe.. There is a magnet connector for charging.
You can actually charge it while detecting.

From what has been shown and what has been said around on at least one you tube clip, to charge the internal lithium battery, will connect via a Magnetic Micro USB connection to a usb power source, like a battery boost, that can also be attached to charge even while you are detecting.

Not having any gaskets or o-rings to mess with is even more encouraging.

Thats what i am wondering about , I think they wont be waterproof in the box so it most likely will be more money spent ?
But then i wont be diving in the water or under it so i am not worried .
Provided it is waterproof and doesn't leak i am happy.

I doubt it as there is no connection for them.
