Ninja Shark claims that the Electra Full Face Snorkel Mask is more than just another snorkel mask – it’s a true innovation in snorkeling technology, and it offers several features including the automatic air-circulation system and battery-operated vent fan.

We compare all models in this article in this Ninja Shark Snorkel Mask Review but this article takes an in depth look at the Electra model on its own.

Electra Full Face Snorkel Mask Features

Battery Powered Air Circulation System

The Smart Air Cirulation System is a revolutionary snorkel mask feature. This system allows for 5 times faster oxygen entry into the lungs and CO2 build up to be replaced at the same rate, meaning you can breathe naturally and effortlessly.

Sensor Activation

The SENSOR BASED ACTIVATION is an automatic air-circulation system that provides the wearer with a comfortable and safe experience.

The CO2 sensor switches on the mask to activate an airflow renewal system when above water, so that you can stay cool and comfortable while enjoying your time in the ocean.

This system allowsmuch quicker oxygen entry, and CO2 disposal.

Automatic Drainage

The Electra full face snorkel mask has automatic drainage, which makes it easy to empty the water without taking off your mask. The chin drain is placed at the bottom of the nose area, so it’s quick and easy to fuse.

180 Degree Lens

The Electra Full Face Snorkel Mask is the perfect choice for any type of snorkeler. The mask has superior underwater visibility and a viewing area that is expanded by 30%.

Anti-Leak Safety

The Electra full face snorkel mask is designed with safety in mind. It has a comfortable and natural fit, as well as being waterproof. The dry top snorkel valve prevents water from entering the breathing tube to protect your lungs. Furthermore, the shatterproof window allows for added protection against potential injury if it breaks during use.

Tube Folds Down

The Electra Full Face Snorkel Mask folds down to make it easier for you to carry and transport with other items. It’s easy to store, and the tube can be safely stored in a backpack or suitcase so your mask won’t get damaged.

Camera Mount

The Electra full-face snorkel mask has a detachable camera mount that is easy to install. This allows the user to take pictures or videos of their experience while swimming. The camera can be installed on either side of the mask, making it easier for users who are left-handed or right-handed. With this product, you will have an incredible underwater view through your eyes and not just what’s in front of you.

Customer Reviews

As a relatively new product there are not a lot of user reviews yet – but the early feedback is really positive. People have ben blown away by the rechargable air circulation system and over all quality of the mask.

The increased viewing window, on top of the comfy fit, and adjustable straps, make this snorkel mask a pleasure to wear and swim with.

Recommendation

Though it is not cheap the Electra is the most outstanding full face snorkel mask currently available. Given the advanced ait circulation system, you do need the batery charged for this to work at its best.

This is fine in a practical sense, but means you would need some means of charging the battery after 3 hours or so. Given the USB cord you can do this in your car, or some other small battery pack, but you do need to keep this in mind.

If you think this may be problematic you may want to consider a simpler model, but if it fits your snorkel habits, it definately has advantages. If the batery runs out, you can still use it like any other full face snorkel mask, so there is no downside, but that particular feature (fan assist) will require recharging every 3-3.5 hours.
