  Self test after deployment,
  Posted by: on Oct-26-12 4:21 PM (EST)

I've secondhand info that the mcmurdo can be repacked and the cover "resealed" with duct tape, then the battery test performed & if good you're set to go again. This is not a factory authorized procedure. After deployment they instruct you to send the unit in or take it to an authorized service center where they will test the battery, replace if needed and place a new cover on the unit. The cover is suposed to be a one time use; the primary reason for the cover is to prevent accidental deployment.

So bottom line for me is, if I need to deploy it, I won't hesitate. I'll self test the battery and reseal it myself if the battery still checks out strong.
