vexilar battery

3 posts in this topic

How long will a vexilar battery last for before having to be recharged? Does it matter how cold it is? also how long do i charge it compared to how many hours I use it for? thanks

On a fresh battery, I can get 2 days fishing before it [PoorWordUsage]s out.

The colder the battery, the less efficient the chemical reaction that produces electricity, so the shorter the life on the charge. I built my own holder out of wood so the unit and battery sit a couple inches off the cooooold ice.

I know when mine is charged in two ways: I've got the SLT, which has a series of lights on the unit marking how full the charge is, and my plug-in charger from Vexilar has a little red light that's off while it's charging but goes on when it's fully charged.

I don't know any formula for how long to charge a battery based on how long you've used it.

The charger that came with my vex battery has red light that comes on when it is fully charged. They say that you should charge it everytime you use it for best battery life. Not sure if I believe that but am going to try it with this new battery. I agree that you should be able to get about 2 days of fishing with a good battery that is fully charged

    • You didn't even understand the question Junior. Do we need to get you a translator? 
    •   And then what? There's a saying that goes, "Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it."   You have a country of 300 some million individuals and a good number of that all have different ideas how to so call fix this. That's why we are set up as a representative republic and not a democracy.   You seem to be assuming most people will see things your way

    • Look my very own internet stalker making memes about me, such a proud day.

    • I guess the question is when are we going to get pizzed off enough to do something about it? Guess we aren't there yet.
    •   Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year  by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!
    •   Yep, had to fix a few of those switches and tell the wife and kids to let the motor stop before pounding it in reverse!!
    • Kind of crude image but here is what I'm looking at.
    • Access is in the middle but I'm not overly concerned with that.  I can seal it up and cut a new one.  I'm thinking about slide channels mounted on the wall with a steel or aluminum frame mounted to the channels that can slide up and down with a electric winch routed through a couple pulleys. 
    •   You and Bearsheet.................blame everyone but yourselves.  All you those grueling hours you 2 spent in Sillytown advocating for Gary "Hillary is great" Johnson.   #victim #noonegetsitbutyou
    • How close is the access hole to the wall? I have a friend that built a large loft in his shed and utilized cammed pulleys and weights to allow him to hinge the stairway from the loft. Basically, with the cammed pulley, it stays down when he pulls it down and stays up when he puts it up... all with little to no effort.
