Electric Auger Multi-task

Recommended Posts

I'm not real sure what the new elec augers offer. What I want is a USB (or similar) port reducing voltage to 12v so i can run my house lights. Is that available?

Welcome to the forum Nuttinbittin.

Can you expand on what you are using now for power? What kind of house do you have and how many lights or other 12V usage items are you trying to power up on a itty bitty USB port?

Thanks for the come back. I am using a gas auger now. If I were to get a elec I would want to use that huge battery for other applications. It may need a cigarette lighter port. So I could charge a phone, run a Vexilar or my portable led lights.

Looks like that one just has a USB port on it not a cigarette lighter type port, right?

I'm not sure why you would want to do that other than saving the weight or expense of having a second battery.

 

Just remember, the power in those batteries only last so long so the more you use, the faster it will run down. If you drill a bunch of holes plus use the battery for other 12 volt applications in the house, it may die sooner than you want it to.

 

Personally, I would stick with multiple batteries for different applications.

Great info. I thought I saw that somewhere. So, calling all inventive minds together.. ... Take battery pak & plug it into a board with all the gizmos, gagets, inverters, transistors & diodes. Then jump your four wheeler, run all your electronics, fans, ligjts & power coolers, fans and aerators in the summer.

Thats correct.  But cigarette lighter sockets as power sources are getting pretty outdated.  Even the car charger plug ins are just the terminal end that you plug a USB cord into.

 

The E6 Lightning is the first battery auger that has this feature and I’ll bet all others will follow suit.  The amount of power to charge things that run off USB is pretty minimal, including LED lights.  The E6 (6 Ah battery) is marketed as being able to drill 70 - 8” holes through 24” of ice on a charge.  If that stands to be true, I might be wantin’ one.

 

But even if I could make the power connection to a Vexilar, I doubt I’d take it that far.  6 Ah hours isn’t enough for a day on the ice for the Vex IMHO.

Have you looked into the Milwaukee power source? You could use the cordless drill and hand auger to cut holes and use the same batteries and the Milwaukee power source with the USB port?

They have Dewalt USB ports that are made by different company's on Amazon that cost right around $17. Made for either 12 or 20 volt batteries.

The only thing is usb does put out enough power to make your led lights work. I am having my electrical engineering buddies check into making a usb to rum my leds and vexilar.

Lots of ways to share battery power. Most ice fishing Electronics run on 12 VDC so in many cases you only need a specific cable from source to equipment or run direct as with my camera compas panner. If going to higher voltage batteries 24v, 40v etc. you need a regulator or converter to reduce voltage to 12 VDC. Cables are often hard to find so I build mine. I use the base LM317 regulator with a couple capacitors & resistors to get desired output volts from 1.25v to 37v. The 3.2v regulator bottom right runs my my camera

USB cords and source are 5v at max 1.4A. Vex runs on 12v. Most LEDs are also 12v. May have extreme dificaulty to to get USB to 12v.

If that’s why you want an electric auger then foget it. Simple answer to your question is NO. That’s not the battery people talk of.

    • Not sure what this bird is called. It only wanted grape jelly. The orioles were thick on the feeders, there were a dozen at a time in the crappy weather. This was in douglas county.
    • I put in my tomatoes and peppers last weekend and built the greenhouses. All week it was nice and toasty in there. I opened one end to vent mid days. They were thriving nicely, leaf tips up. It is suppose to drop to 34 here tonight.  4th year blueberries in front. I pinched blooms the first 3 years. Finally get to try them this year. My rabbit fence is 18" and the snow was deeper. The rabbits put blueberry bush tips on their menu, all vegetative growth below the snow didn't get touched. I am going to re-fence taller around the blueberries by fall. 
    • I just had a bird at my suit that is the size of a cardinal. It was bright red with black wings. Anyone have a idea what it is? 
    • got back from bowstring and feeders were all empty. lotta birds here also. cool that you had some redstarts in. I have seen 2 so far this year. 
    • to bad Berrios couldn't get that last out in the bottom of the 5th to get the win. 15 runs and he couldn't get there. bummer!!!!
    • sweet!!!!!!!! lookin good!!!!!!!!!
    • The homerun derby that is the 2019 twins season continued lastnight! Holy cow is this team fun to watch! First time in MLB history a team had multiple 5 homerun games before June 1st.
    • Got my ND birds back yesterday.    
    • 😣 looks like I need to cover my plants tonight, there's a frost advisory here.
    • I wish I could have gotten pictures, but a bird I could not identify, looked it up and had American Redstart on my deck today, there were about 3 or 4 of them. very awsom.
