    Have you had a battery change previously or is it still on original ?

    If it is still on original battery, it probably needs it changing. I take on board what you said about 96% life, sometimes this has no direct comparison with life left.

    Mine died on 83% I consider meself lucky I got away with it that long.

    For your information Suunto's have a battery life of around 100 hours. Really not sure about Aladin's though.

    Send it away can't do any harm plus they will give it a once over when battery is changed.

    Is that diving time or just time switched on?

    Battery indicator can get down to about 30% before giving up. This gives about 5-10 years of battery life for the Uwatec range.

    The ERR mode can be due to a number of reasons - the most common non-battery ones are:
    Leaving it in a sealed container
    In a bag near a mobile

    If its in ERR it has to go to Scubapro and they'll change the battery and fix/callibrate it.
