aqua view 4x4 and X67 power source

4 posts in this topic

Can I hook up the camera and/or the Lowrance X67 directly to a battery, or will this give me problems of some sort due to something other than voltage.

Thanks,

jk

With any electronics you should have a fuse in the line.

Not sure how the cameras run...they must have fuse built inside if you hook up to the terminals they have ready for battery connect.

Not familiar with the X67 whether it has built in fuse or not.

If they both do, then you should be able to hook up to the same power source. Will be faster drain, but less weight to haul.

I am in the works of building a power box for my portable ice house. I am just going to power everything with one full size marine battery. Lights, vex, camera, and whatever else I dream up! The one battery will way about the same as 3 small Vex rechargables, (ok maybe twice as much) and it will last alot longer. Yes any 12 volt battery will work, your equipment should be fused already, but I would recommend a fuse right at the battery to protect the wiring from the battery to the equipment.

My X67 came with an inline fuse, I don't think it is fused internally. I can't remember what size fuse, but it is small, less than 3 amp I think, maybe as small as .5 Your owners manual should tell you the correct size. All of the electronics run off the same battery in my boat. If I hook up the x67 to the trolling motor batteries it loses its color, but nothing else seems to bother it.

      The ice is fine. I have a lot of standing water because my house is dark color. Come up and enjoy this weather. Ice is 24-30".a little snow left out on ice.

      Nick, you did a great job finding good fish for everyone.  Wished I woulda brought at least one rod and my flasher for the short time I was there.  But it was good to meet y'all face to face.   I got a hankering for some pannies now.  Might have to look for some tomorrow.

        I had the same experience today. Tons of little gills and very few big ones pike were not going on anything on tip ups today though. Wasn't fishing your area but figured I'd chime in. I had anywhere from 17-29 inches of ice with some water on top ice is great yet.

      Still plenty of good ice on Bartlett Lake today. 16" where I was at. No standing water on the ice yet. The shorelines were in good shape, too. Too bad it will probably all be trash by Tuesday.   The bluegill were biting well this morning, but for every decent sunny I had to throw back about eight potato chips.   The Northern were slamming tip-ups baited with shiners. Too bad for me I brought suckers. I caught a couple Northern, and a 16" largemouth as well. I would have liked to get out to the airport lake tomorrow morning (after a trip across the river to get some shiners  ), but I have other things to do. The backwaters around Winona will just have to wait until next December.
