Marcum LX5 Batteries

4 posts in this topic

I fully charged my LX5 at the end of ice fishing season. This is the first I have used it since and the battery was totally drained. My guess is the battery meter connected to it drained it. I have a spare gell cell vex battery that I use for my boat lights and it still had a charge after one year of non use. My LX5 was new this Christmas. I am not sure what happened but people that have these might want to dig out the charger and recharge or at least check the status of their batteries.

guess I need to read more here. The battery even after 24 hours would charge to 100 percent but go down to 90 percent after one day. I am sure it is shot.

At least they only cost 20 bucks for a new one.

If you left your DCS hooked up, you gotta dead battery that needs to be replaced. They typically won't take a charge after they've been completely drained like that. I found out the hard way too! frown.gif

        Yes sir! 8ft-9ft rods seem to work the best IMO.

      4/23/17     Crappies still biting in west Metro area lakes. Water temp in the mid 50's now, and the fish are moving a little shallower. We caught tons of 8 to 11 inch crappies in about ten feet of water, with some weeds on the bottom. Fished a jig tipped with a Powerbait minnow about four feet below a slip-float for great success. Some sunfish starting to show up in the same areas. Water temp probably won't rise much this week with the forecast of cooler temps and quite a bit of rain, but as the water does warm fish should continue to move shallower and get more aggressive. Check out my You Tube channel for some short video clips and a full length show about springtime crappie fishing. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
