AA Lion Batteries

7 posts in this topic

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.

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff
