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.

    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!

    • Well, after two and a half hours on the phone with Netgear and Comcast I have no resolution.  Comcast is coming out to the house on Wednesday to see what the problem is.  I am on the 150 mbs plan and I still only get around 30 on a speed test.  Even when I wire directly to the router the performance is the same.  I may upgrade to the Roku Ultra as well.
    • The speeds that you show are enough for streaming, the roku stick is not their best streaming device. I use Roku 3 and used to have your bandwidth with no problem.

    • nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • The greenhouse experiment this year has paid off for me. I got to plant about a month earlier than I usually do.
    • They sound like they got cold, I planted too soon years back and had the same thing. I bought smaller new plants that out performed the stunted ones. It took about a month before they started growing again. The heat at the end of this week should help them out.
    • Not really. My cukes are going well. Got 3 tomato plants that look like they don't wanna do anything though!!??
    • That's a heck of a nail driver you got there!  😉
