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.

      Tried my luck on Lory lake for some pan fish. trying to catch a meal. didn’t find any sunfish over 7” and a few 9” crappies. Not what I was expecting hoping for a little better. Might have to try a littler bigger lake for some better results.

      @cherokee muskie-mike is spot on the dog food... When I use to camp at hoodoo point campgrounds I tend to use nightcrawlers if I have any to spare (in a minnow trap). Caught too many rusties while fishing.

      6/22/18     West Metro Water temp is in the 70's and sunfish are up on the beds. Look for harder bottom areas inside of or adjacent to softer bottom with weeds. The smaller females will be staging over the weeds--you may see them boiling--and the big bulls will be guarding the nests (beds) on the firmer bottom. Got my son and Dad out to catch a bunch this morning.  Ultralight 7' spinning rods/reels with four pound test Berkley Nanofil works great to cast to these bedding fish from a distance and get a good hook set. We use a 1/16 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig tipped with a 1" to 1.5" soft plastic (minnow, grub, tube, etc.) under a slip float to adjust for beds at different depths. Usually you will be targeting 2-8 feet of water, depending on water clarity. Take care not to keep everything you catch. It is fine to keep a fresh meal once in a while--sunfish is awfully tasty--but put plenty of fish, including the biggest bulls, back. Needed to keep the natural cycle of reproduction going. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
