Marcum Batterys????

3 posts in this topic

I have a marcum lx5 and I am heading out of town for the weekend. I don't think that I will be able to charge it at all. I have a vexilar battery here. Can I hook up the vexilar battery to the marcum if I run out of juice? I am pretty sure they are the same, if not really similar. I just want to be on the safe side.

Yes you can run the Vexilar battery in your Marcum . It's 12 volt and thats all that matters . I run a vexilar 9 amp 12 volt in mine all the time and keep the 7 amp Marcum battery as the spare .

Yep, any "flasher" battery available from Cabelas, Fleet Farm, Gander, etc will work in the Marcum Flashers. I've been taking a number of 3 day trips this winter and my LX-3 is running out of juice at the beginning of the 3rd day usually.

I've got a couple spare batteries that I bring along but I also plan on getting a spare DCS system for one of the batteries. That will make it much easier for charging, knowing the charge, and swapping out the batteries. The DCS I have now is really stuck to my Marcum battery with some 3M double sided tape so swapping that isn't an option.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
