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.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!

      Trout fishing thru the ice is a blast!!!   Their hits are usually aggressive like that, makes it exciting. They put up a pretty good fight too.
