It is not recommended that these products be used in a vacuum or very low pressure environment such as that created by a classroom-grade vacuum pump and bell jar. This could damage the Li-Po battery pouch inside the unit.

Other products with batteries which may be damaged by vacuum:
Go Wireless® Temp (GW-TEMP, discontinued)
Go Wireless® pH (GW-PH, discontinued)
Go Wireless® Electrode Amplifier (GW-EA, discontinued)
Go Wireless® Link (GW-LINK, discontinued)
LabQuest 2 (LABQ2)
LabQuest Stream (LQ-STREAM)
Any Go Direct product, such as Go Direct® Gas Pressure Sensor (GDX-GP) and Go Direct® Acceleration Sensor (GDX-ACC)

This said, we know that some customers have successfully sent LabQuest 2 to the edge of space as part of a weather balloon payload. Some customers have successfully used Go Direct products in glove boxes. The decision to use our equipment in this fashion is at the customer’s own risk.

Can I use Vernier equipment in a weather balloon?
