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.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
