Rechargable batteries?

Question

Ron Burgundy

Are there any of these that are better than the others? Quick charging, long lasting etc.? AA and AAA for fishing lights and sonar.

Use high power NiMH rechargeable batteries and make sure they are higher capacity cells. I just picked up 2700mAh rechargeable's for my camera. I wouldn't go any lower then 2200mAh and if possible shoot for 2500mAh or higher. The higher the capacity - the longer the run time which is especially import for digital camera's.

I have tried them all at some point. Right now I have been happy with the Ray-O-Vac and Energizer brands but have had pretty good luck with the RadioShack ones as well. The Higher the mah (milli amp hour)rating the better. I use them in everything. H2O, Wii motes, cameras, radio, LCD TV, led flash lights to name a few.

One of the main things I look at before purchasing is if the charger has a 12volt plug for use in the car. I couldn't tell you how handy that has been!

Ditto to that. Until they make a rechargeable that will keep it's charge at idle. I'm using Lithiums.

E-cells have my vote. they get better the more you use them. Still like the lithiums also.

Rechargeable batteries, the quick charge ones don't last as long because they're taking a higher charge rate and that heats the batteries up a lot. The ones that charge slower can get your batteries a much higher charge capacity and will be able to charge much more often. It's all about charge time in the end. You sacrifice some things, for the short charge time, but sure is convenient.

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys
    • Wanderer
      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
