A good 8 to 9 amp will serve you well. A vex does not eat up much juice.

For lighting or a underwater camera...go 9 amp for sure.

8 amp $19 and 9 amp $24 at Gander.

I'd get an absorbent glass mat (AGM)battery. This is the type of battery I use for my boat, vex and for lighting my icehouse. The advantage is they are not at risk of freezing or cold weather damage. They also hold their charge much better than a flooded battery, only self discharging 1-3% per month. They are slightly more expensive but worth it to me since I've had batteries damaged while ice fishing.

I think the proper term for the general type of battery used for these things is "VRLA" (valve regulated lead acid). Two basic types...gel cell and AGM. Most common is the gel cell, afaik.

I've ordered Panasonic brand in the past from DigiKey. They've been a bit more expensive but seemed to last pretty well. Dunno though, if they're worth the extra money or not in the long run.

    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
