Battery Question

5 posts in this topic

I am wondering....could one connect a Vexilar and/or Aqua View camera to a normal 12 volt battery (like a deep cycle used in the fish house), rather than using the normal small batteries they come with so they would last longer.

Be sure to put a in line fuse of the proper size ahead of your vexiler. the small battery has 7 or 9 amps, I beleive, the regular 12 volt battery has anywhere between 400 and 900 anps. If your vex. shorts, its goodby vex.

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
