Charging Depth Finder on Ice

Recommended Posts

I've thought about this since we are gonna be in a sleeper next week. Have you drained your vex battery and recharged it fully? Mine lasts about 3 full days before it goes dead. plenty of charge for the 3 days I will be out there especially since it won't be on much at night. Maybe you won't have to charge it.

They also make chargers that will plug into the cigarette lighter of your vehicle. Or you could buy an extra battery, or you can buy an inverter and plug that into your cigarette lighter and your charger into the inverter. Any of these are viable options, just depends on what works best for you

I pick up a 350 watt power pack at menards last year, I run the TV off that, or recharge the cell phone, or recharge the vex. not a bad investment for 70 bucks

There is always the solar charger option too. A little spendy up front; but very cheap in the long run.

I would think you wouldn't have to spend more than $30 tops for a inverter, that would work for charging, of course a bigger one works for more things.

That and last I checked an extra battery was much cheaper than $30.

I always carry 2 batteries and I have a cigarette lighter cord that I can plug in my atv and run it. I cant stand fishing if I dont have my Vexilar.

Just a thought but I know that some resorts will take your battery in and hook it up so it can charge over night. The inverter will work and that is what I used when I am traveling in my truck I hook it up and let it charge as I go down the road.

I bring my deep cycle boat battery when I stay in sleeper houses on "DaWoods"!
I bring a bunch of speaker wire so I can hook up several fashers to it and whatever requires 12 volt supply!
The locator works great that way and never gets low on power. I can use the regular flasher battery when I fish out from the permanent with a full charge.
Also I plug in the flasher battery to the cigarrete lighter in between lakes I fish and that tops off the battery to full charge.
Just buy a plug in and solder the wire to a couple of clips is all you need and it works!
Good Luck!

If you drive out to the house just get some wire and some clips and run it off your vehicle battery

You can buy a inverter at Walmart for $15. Plugs int a cigerette lighter. I drove down to very southern Illinois for Thanksgiving and I needed one. I did not have a car charger for my cell and my wife wanted to watch dvd's on the laptop. It worked great. Lot cheaper than paying $30 for the car charger for my sprint phone and relying on an hour worth of battery time on the computer.

Hoped this helped.

    • Well Thank God for your wife. Shes a saint. 😇
    • 1 x 6 untreated red cedar bds cut to 15" for the weber has worked good for me. You can get lots of cooks on one board.  It's a lot cheaper than getting them at a grill store. The salmon looks good!
    • Yes, it's Food Grade cedar! 😋
    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
