AA Lion Batteries

Question

nate larson

I am thinking about buying some Lithium Ion batteries and a charger for my H2Oc. Does anyone have any suggestions on what kind to get? Any help would be appreciated.

are you referring to just the standard rechargeable batteries you can buy anywhere? if you are i have used both energizers and Duracells and have noticed no difference in run time with either of them, i would get whatever you can get on sale.

No, not just the standard batteries. I am looking for lithium ion batteries. I have heard that they last longer than other kinds but are a little more expensive. Does anyone use these?

i am sure you could find them somewhere try the batteries plus stores. the nice thing about lithium batteries is they are more suited for cold temps ans will endure the cold better than most standard and alkaline batteries. the not so nice thing is the cost. i just picked up some for my remote weather system. but if they get me more life it is well worth it. ... paul

Thanks for the info Paul. I didn't know that they work better in the cold. That is good to know. How much did your batteries cost? Did you buy AA's?

I cannot comment on the H20, but I always use the Energizer Lithiums in my digital camera. Day and night difference between those and standard Energizer. They are a lot lighter as well. You can buy them anywhere (walmart, target, etc)

I don't like using the rechargeables on anything that sits for any amount time between uses. Right when you need it the most (camera) the batteries are dead. I'll pay a little extra for the satisfaction of knowing they'll be ready to go.

      You can get around anywhere on Ottertail. I have been out there the past couple weekends and we currently have 20"+ of ice. It is a little rough and some deeper snow drifts but you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of houses and traffic on the lake.

      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.

      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps

      I am looking for a LED Rope lights to hang in my clam ice house for fishing at night.  I know you can purchase a light bar from clam, but I am thinking there must be a cheaper way.  I am looking for suggestions.  Please provide the brand.  Thanks, Mike

      The white hockey tape, then black electric tape over.  The hockey tape by itself gets too wet for me. The black electric tape sheds water better than the hockey tape.  After a few yrs of use the black will leave a gunky residue on the rod if used by itself Have also tried the reel bands, not a big fan of them when fighting a big fish.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Masking tape on rod handle then electrical tape reel to rod. Works good!

      Hockey tape for me.  Bought a roll 10 years ago and probably have another 10 years left in it, unless I go on a shopping spree for rods/reels!

      Finally got out there Saturday after wanting to for almost 10 years! After reading all the pointers on here and looking at maps we gave it a try. Ended up catching around 15 between the 2 of us in about 4 hrs biggest being about 6lbs. Had a blast and will definitely do it again!  Oh and you're not kidding about a lite bite I think only one actually pulled the bobber  under!

      I was on Turtle Lake.  I've always found the clarity good there although I also haven't seen a boatload of pike.  Centerville was awful a couple of weeks ago as was Peltier although they both can change in a few weeks.  Sorry I didn't reply sooner but I was up north seeing almost 50 fish in two days on a small lake west of Bemidji.  Nice clear water there and pike from 10 to 38 inches long.

      Just fished Potato for the first time this winter. Found walleyes in 15 feet of water off the mid lake humps during the day/late afternoon. Had the camera down and saw plenty of eyes but couldn't get them to bite. Was wondering if this lake is more of a night bite.
