FX12041: A compact battery tank with 4 Ah power and fixed mounting plate

The FX1204 is the smallest copy of the Metalsub battery tank series. With 12 Volt and 4 Ah power it delivers a long burning time of 120 minutes when using a 24 Watt lamp head (at full power) up to 40 minutes when using the most powerful 60 Watt Metalsub cable light.

This small but powerful battery tank would be an ideal travel companion, since it won’t take up too much luggage space. Though it provides more than enough power for your dive light while diving.


Despite the compact dimensions of this battery tank, it’s a full member of the Metalsub family:

  • Manufactured from a very high quality aluminum.
  • Equipped with Metalsub's unique anodising layer, according to US Military Standards (MIL-A-8625-E type3 class2). This protective layer is also impregnated with Teflon, which guarantees a high degree of corrosion resistance.
  • Equipped with an overpressure valve, so that any gases which arise during charging can safely leave the battery.
  • Designed according to the "less is more" principle: no unnecessary buttons, lids or openings.
  • The battery tank has only one connection that is used both to connect the (exchangeable) lamp head and to charge the lamp.
  • The streamlined, rounded, minimalist design without sharp edges also ensures that underwater lines and nets do not easily catch on this tank.
  • Equipped with Metalsub's very robust cable light coupling: connect or remove in seconds with just a quarter turn.
