  1. Perhaps of interest just received a bit of "blog" on internet, might be useful to charge your detector/gear up out in the field. https://www.banggood.com/Outdoor-20W-Multifunction-Portable-Manual-Crank-Generator-Emergency-Survival-Power-Supply-p-1225105.html?utm_design=18&utm_source=emarsys&utm_medium=Mail_mailad323_dealalert&utm_campaign=newsletter—emarsys&utm_content=Yoshiki&sc_src=email_2910641&sc_eh=30723af58dfb79b31&sc_llid=148577&sc_lid=112998216&sc_uid=l2mpbuqX6Z&cur_warehouse=CN
  2. Car Charger

    The USB ports in cars are notorious for being 1 amp or less so picked up one of these off Amazon to top off the charge between sites if I realize I have left home without a full charge on the NOX. $7.59. Brand isn't particularly important just that it is capable of putting out a min of 2 amps per port. RAVPower 24W 4.8A Metal Dual Car Adapter with iSmart 2.0 Charging Tech - Black .
  3. Equinox Going Solar

    Got my Equinox 800 to solar charge, well kind of . The external battery bank and solar charger will help for those extended trips to the desert. I got it on ebay, and put a mount on the detector.
  4. Buy yourself a metal detecting flashlight holder $5, and a power bank with built in flashlight $5-$20. I personally prefer the larger waterproof solar power bank with dual LEDs. Great for night time surf hunts All available on eBay.
  5. Just a heads up... Seeing a few of the charging leads coming apart at the head. Could be a batch problem as some I have seen look 100% OK and have had some use... Others seem to have started showing problems - see the 3 pics of my 2 charging heads AND the last pic.. (not mine) is at time of un packing; and was almost separated... One of mine is not crash hot and the other could fail with a little push. A simple weld will fix the problem, but will be e-mailing ML service to let them know.
  6. How Do You Charge Your Equinox?

    I charge mine with a motorola 2 Amp phone charger:
  7. Charging Options

    Although I have several USB chargers including a dual 2.4 amp I'm running out of space outlet wise both on the surge protector for the computer ect and the spare outlet a few feet away. This looks lie a good option to replace the spare outlet and allow more hookups for USB use. Got a good review stat wise on the wire cutter site USB outlet Note however that it is rated for 15 amp circuits only
  8. This is an added document that arrived with my Equinox. Extremely important. Out of the 8 USB chargers in my house, none were UL certified. Trip to Wal-Mart is in order. Click for larger version....
  9. Samsung Power Usb Fast?

    In the manual minelab say 5.0v 1a Can wecharge the nox with samsung fast charging Phone 5.0v 2.0 a ?
  10. I just ordered one of these as an experiment. In theory I can put regular AA batteries or rechargeable batteries in this power pack, and use it to run the Equinox as an external battery pack in case the internal battery goes dead. The question of course is how long will it power the Equinox depending on the batteries used? I always have a ton of AA batteries around, both alkaline and rechargeable, so this seems like a cheap experiment. Report back later. "This compact, portable USB power bank allows devices to be charged from 4 AA batteries while on the move. Ideal for smartphones, tablet computers and many other devices. • Powered by 4 AA batteries • Features a battery level indicator (green for alkaline and blue for rechargeable) • Power supply: 4 x AA batteries (not supplied) • Output voltage: 5Vdc • Output current: 800mA • Dimensions: 79 x 34 x 34mm • Weight: 40g" EMERGENCY USB BATTERY POWERED POWER BANK
  11. Dose anyone charge their gpx 5000 with solar panels?? Please and thanks
  12. Nox Battery Charge Time

    Just wandering how long it takes to fully charge the equinox battery?
  13. Thanks Steve! Just wondering how that would work for a carry on on an airplane, I don't trust check in with anything electronic plus from what I've read, lithium battery items aren't allowed in check in so want to make sure it's travel worthy. I figured there would be headphones as well since bluetooth isn't an option for submersion. Thanks!
  14. Has anyone tried using a Lithium Li-ion battery in their Gold Bug Pro? I thought I would order a few to see what they're like, they are yet to arrive. These are the ones I ordered out of interest https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Brand-NEW-Etinesan-9V-3600mWh-lithium-li-ion-rechargeable-li-polymer-battery-for-Microphone-GPS-remote/32811854849.html It seems like they would provide long life power for the Bug and they charge using a USB cable so I could use my phone charger in the car to charge them up if i'm out and about. If they work out I'll get them for my Carrot too
  15. I was delighted to discover that the 12-volt vehicle charger for the GPZ 7000 also fits the the rechargeable battery of the Gold Monster 1000...buh-bye inverter & alligator clips!
  16. I need to replace my original Minelab rechargeable C batteries. I have used a set with 6000mAH and they work great, Now I see that 10000mAH C batteries are available and much cheaper than the 6000aMH I purchased 2yrs ago, has anyone used these and is the run time longer?
  17. So rather than spend $200 for the XP branded case I thought I could do better. So first I bought the Plano model 108442 gun rifle case for $70 shipped on Amazon
  18. I know it is ok to use the 3030 battery in the GPZ. Is it ok to use the GPZ battery in the CTX? I am thinking the larger battery would help with balance when using the large coil. Any thoughts? Norm
  19. Anyone know of any 1.8V AA rechargeable batteries with a high mah for sale? Trying to find something hotter to use in my TDI SL. Or how to go about using 4 of the Panosonic 18650 3.7v 3400mah batteries in the 8 battery box? Still waiting for Whites to have an upgrade available.
  20. We have some detectors that have a battery pack that has to be charged in the unit and others that can be removed. The only thing I dislike about the batteries that can't be removed is when this happens you don't have a working detector anymore. I know most have a long charge life but all have a limit on how long that will last. Now give me a detector that a battery pack that can be removed to be charged and have a pack you can drop in to keep detecting is in my opinion is the best way to go. I'm sure everyone has their opinion and I'd like to hear yours. Chuck PS At this time I have just one Scuba Tector that batteries can't be removed
  21. however, being somewhat 'thrifty' I have often gleaned over the thought of using a rechargeable alternative. My brother, who is thriftier than I, not long ago told me about rechargeable alkaline batteries and their abilities. I have experience with both the normal NiCd and NiMh rechargeable varieties each type having their pros and cons and the biggest being the lower operating voltage when fully charged of about 1,2 volts. Alkaline in my experience initially will be in the 1.6+ voltage range, much better for my LST and GM4. I guess my question might be, why did the Rechargeable Alkaline alternative never get advertised or promoted? I believe they may be a worthy consideration but, " anyone out there ever go this route?"
  22. Wondering if anyone's using the GoldScreamer power packs for their gpx? Thinking I may have to go that route very soon....if you do how do you like the system? Has anyone had any bad experience with using it as its not an official minelab battery.
  23. Hi , Could someone point me in the direction of a decent set of rechargable batteries for the 2300.... i have the charger i got with it... i threw the batteries that came with it away....
