Please note that the tank you receive may vary in appearance from the tank shown in the image but will be the correct size with the advertised amount of years remaining.
Recent DOT regulation (SP-16320) changes have led to some amazing developments for airgunners! Life Extended tanks may be used up to an additional 15 years from their born on date. For example, a tank manufactured in the year 2001, would have previously expired in 2016. Now, this tank may be usable until 2031 once Life Extended!
If the cost of a brand new carbon fiber air cylinder has kept you from getting into PCP airguns, a Life Extended cylinder may be the answer! These carbon fiber cylinders are lightweight and capable of storing up to 4500 psi of high pressure air. Potentially providing thousands of shots for your PCP airguns!
Of course, just like brand new carbon fiber SCBA cylinders, they must pass testing every 5 years from the Life Extension date to remain in service (Ex. A tank Life Extended in 2017, wouldn’t require a retest until 2022). This testing can only be done by Digital Wave Corporation for Life Extended tanks and will cost about the same as a standard hydro test plus shipping and handling.
These cylinders come with a brand new 300 BAR DIN valve and fill assembly that ends in a female quick disconnect fitting, ready to fill your PCP airguns. The valve and fill assembly feature stainless steel fittings, a 24 in. microbore hose and a rubberized hand wheel for controlled filling. The integrated pressure gauge lets you know when you're reaching your full charge, and the bleed valve is conveniently located on the valve.

Things I liked: The capacity is perfect for an extended shooting session with portability. The valve was smooth as butter, giving total control over fill rate. The manometer glows in the dark after light exposure and has a rugged rubber ring around it.
Things I would have changed: The hose could be a little longer, but not a big deal. I wish that it had come with a test plug, I like those to keep hose clean.
What others should know: The diameter may be a tad bit larger as it looks like some additional carbon fiber wrap may have been added which will make a 5.5" tank boot fit pretty snug. Seems like a good deal for the price.
Things I liked: 1.The size for the price. 2.length of time for refills 12yr..
Things I would have changed: Have a regulator to set fill pressure.
What others should know: I did have a leak in the fill hose. That said Pyramyd Air corrected the problem quickly.
Things I liked: I love that I don't have to hand pump by having this tank gives me plenty of fills on my gun. ..It's definitely worth buying works great Thanks to Pramyd air
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: If you are tired of hand pumping you definitely should buy one

Why doesn't PA show the actual Hydro tested date as well as the extended life remaining on the actual life extended tank being sold? The reason that i ask is that these tanks have to be retested by the approved company every 5 yrs. to be able to pass and continue the extended life safety process. I just bought one of these tanks and it has a Hydro testing date of 09/17, DOM 2001 which shows me that i do not have 5 yrs from that date for a retest and having to ship this tank to Colorado plus the cost of the test could amount to quite a few more $$$..I don't know the exact cost for the retest so i can only assume that the total cost can be quite a bit since this is the only company with the special permit to retest these tanks
Will this fill my gun to 3000psi or is it regulated to a lower pressure?
Yes it will. The output on this tank is not regulated
Do you need some kinda fill adaptor or can it be filled just with a male to male fitting ?
To fill the tank you can either fill through the hose with a male to male adapter (depending on your compressor set up) or you can purchase a DIN fill adapter but again, that all depends on your compressor set up.
