GPS Batteries

5 posts in this topic

I have an H2OC GPS and I love it. I love the clarity, ease of use, tracking features, quick mark feature, lake maps, etc. But the only problem I have with it is relatively low battery life. Used it deer hunting this year and turned it on before heading into the woods and shut it off once I got to where I was going. Any way, I could only leave it on for 2 to 3 hours straight. Has anyone had better luck with certain batteries? I used Energizer and Duracell batteries with basically the same results. There are some batteries that are considerably more expensive and say they are specifically designed for precision electronics. The $$ doesn't scare me at all, as long as I can get some extended use out of it.

Any info would be great.

Thank You,

DL

I love my H20C but have the same problems- make sure you backlight is off or set to only a few seconds cuz that will burn up the batts fastest. I also use rechargable batts and have 2 sets along, when one goes out swap to teh next and then charge up both sets that night. Buying dospoable batts gets expensive.

Buy the Energizer Lithiums. They are a bit spendy, but they last much, much longer in the H2Oc.

I havbe the regular H2O and don't have any problems with it. I use the 2900 Rechargeables and used the same batteries most of the day Saturday, and also on Sunday. I do bring along a spare set, just in case, but hardly ever have to use them. One thing to remember, cold is hard on batteries and makes them seem like they are dead. Once they warm up, the charge comes back to life. Maybe your GPS is just cold?

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
