LX-5 battery

6 posts in this topic

I was an (Contact Us Please) and didn't disconnect the digital charger from the battery after last season. Now I think the battery is shot. I'm sure I could order one from Marcum, but I believe the local L&M Supply has a similar, if not same battery. My question is this: How do I get the charger off of the old battery and onto the new? By looking at it, it looks like it's been fastened to the battery by a velcro looking material, but it will not come off. When I tried to force it, it wouldn't budge and made a sound like I was cracking it so I stopped. Any ideas?

My lx3 charger just had double faced tape on it. I would use a puddy knife and scrape it off. I reattached it with velcro.

Don't feel bad, I left the DCS on my battery last summer too and ruined a good battery. You can get these 12V, 7A-h batteries in quite a few different stores such as Fleet Farm, Gander, Scheels, etc. They sometimes come with a charger that you can disregard and use your Marcum charger again, but they should still be under $20.

LOL I have this exact thread running in the Ice fishing forum. It is glued to the top of the battery with some kind of epoxy glue. Fleet farm sells the exact battery that was in mine made by genesis. I got the 7 amp for 18 bucks and they wanted 34 for the 9 amp one. It was recommended to me to use a razor and cut it off. A Chisel with a hammer works better. Just tap light and make sure the chisel is sharp.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
