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

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
