Vex Battery Indicator Problem

Recommended Posts

I have had a FL-20 for about 3 months and the batter indicator stopped working. The "on" light still comes on but the percentage light dont. Anyone else have this issue?

yes ive had a similiar problem with my fl-12 i think the indicator is broke it says i only have 75 percent after about 10 minutes. Then after about 5 hours it says the battery is dead but then it last another 12-15 hours. Theyre junk if you ask me.

I had the exact same problem with my FL18 earlier this year. Charged my battery for a couple of days before the season started and the charge indicator said 100%. Within 5 minutes, it would be 90, then 50 and so on until just the power light was on. I didn't take a chance, so I bought a new replacement battery. That was the problem-the battery was shot. I have litterally used my vexilar this winter for hundrdeds of hours and charged the battery every night and it has been working perfectly- the 100% light stays on for approximately 12 hours of fishing. A new battery with charger will be about $35.00

Hope this helps,

Justin

Hmmmmm, I bought a "recon" Vex from the factory last year. I brought it home and charged the battery and the "Charge Complete" light has never came on. I have been out on the ice with it many times and 8 hours is about the longest that I have been using it and it runs great the whole time. The charge indicator only shows the power light and nothing else. I just figured that the lights were useless. Maybe I should look into a new battery? Maybe I should stop by Vexilar on my way home some night and ask them about it? Things that make ya go Hmmmm. Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Alright I just recieved an email from the customer service and said they have had a few cases where the indicators were bad. After a couple of emails they are sending me a new indicator free of charge and it should be at my door in a day. For not speaking to anyone in person I thought they had a fast response time and great service.

    • Britt: Do you know where to view the Ruffed Grouse Society Invitational Hunt in Grand Rapids MN annual harvest statistics by year? Thanks.
    • Watch their interference disappear when you shut your marcum off 🤨
    • Rick was going to start that topic right after this one slowed down! 😅
    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
