Anyone using orbital batteries?

Recommended Posts

I am looking for any real world experience in using orbital/gel cell batteries. Any comments both pro and con will be appreciated. Mainly wondering if they are worth the extra money.

Thanks

I have no experience with Orbital, Would like to know as well. I use Trolling Thunder Troll Batts. I need to research on where to get them (My local supplier says he can't get them anymore, I called the company that makes them and the have not returned my calls)They have been by far the lightest & best troll batts I have used.

Just picked up a Prevailer gel cel by Exide. Won't know how well it does until I get it on the water, and put it through a couple of charge cycles. If you like I can keep you posted, but I have a feeling you'll need the info sooner than that.

Good luck , Lucky

I have no experience with them but my uncle got some two years ago and is disappointed in them and will not get them again. They weren't used to heavily and were on their way down in the second year and he didnt feel they were worth the money. Hope this helps

I used the NAPA Select Orbital batteries last season and I was quite happy with them. They seemed to last longer than ordinary deep cycle batteries and they were much smaller in size, which meant more storage area for me. I would say that they are worth the extra money, if just for the peace of mind knowing that your battery will not run dry or spill.

I own a Trolling Thunder Pro pack myself. I was told that they earned a big government contract and did not have any time to make small batteries. I sure would have liked to pick up another one when I had the chance.

    • A 12v camera with light available from Tomtop out of China $70 with 65 ft cable on reel. Its color HD resolution 1000tvl better than 720p used by Marcum & Aquavu HD units. (Except latest Marcum 1020p latest camera $650). Only drawback, it takes 20 to 30 days free shiping. Link to Tomtop camera. They off a lot of camera options so you may want to da a bit of searching. https://m.tomtop.com/p-y3578-15.html?currency=USD&Warehouse=CN&aid=gplausyly&mid=10000018477&utm_source=SEM&utm_medium=Google Adwords&utm_campaign=TT_PLA_YLY&utm_content=2945&gclid=Cj0KCQiAxs3gBRDGARIsAO4tqq3wBcNnVRFIUf2QknDLs18FF6NrhJ9raJW9BAdaowvDD1gw08q_abwaAilBEALw_wcB Pic simple wire diagram.

    • Another month and it will be 12 years on here for me - and I might’ve been posted topless once in all that time. 🕺
    • I been single for 4 years now!!  well almost...  after the wife passed away I stayed single..  somehow that changed the last few months!!!  🤣
    • Looking to get a camera for nothing but connecting to the ice house TV.  Want good resolution and color for kids. What's the best economical solution? Thanks, EJ  
    • Dang, this thread has been an eye opener.  And here I only ignored my wife for 10 years, it's funny some of you are still married!   🤣
    • need to win on home ice, no matter how good they are. seems as though we lost our home ice advantage, looks like we may be getting the home cooking working again.
    • congrats on the 10 years. I got curious how long I have been here, I hit 16 years last month, I can't believe its been that long. 🤓
    • Looking fabulistic grainbelt!! How long did you let em swim in the marinade anyhow??
    • Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake!  The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away!  From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear.  Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing.  Good Luck!!
    • I have been here a good 17 years and I think there is only about 1 guy left here that I have met in person. Back in the day I knew and met several members who were frequent posters on FM. I met quite a few of them through the BP Catfish League but I think most of those guys are long gone.
