When hooking up to charge LED is not lighting up except with feeble glow. Charger cables and 

contact were checked. If not lighting up bright do I assume a faulty coil battery?,  how do I know?

thanks

The dimness of the coil LED had no consequence cause the coil took s full charge

and shows full on the remote. A bit odd they don’t give charging instructions with the coil- just so you know if you’re doing it correctly

Hi Steve, 

so I bought the XP ORX with the 9” round

so impressed with it  I decided to get the X35

coil. I also bought a near new hf elliptical on ebay. George Kinsey likes that one especially 

( all metal mode)

Both the Deus and ORX are very good detectors, as are the X35 and HF coils. XP is one of the few true innovators in the industry and we are all better off due to their efforts. And now at new lower prices!

I certainly agree with all of that. Can’t say much for my timing, though. I paid full price for everything. I did take advantage of the summer special free Mi6, and I got the hf elliptical coil  for $375  barely used free shipping. Only after ordering that did I see the ad for the new packages and lower price platform. 

No regrets though.

Congrats on the new detector Relic. I’m looking at the 9” x35 to compliment my Deus. Um just have to run it by “she whom I must obey”!

BeachHunter,

These are not your run of the mill coils, they are really excellent, and the price just dropped about $85.

Hello relicmeister

I just got a 9"  x35 coil and mine is the same i hook it up and the light on the coil is very dim.

I'm curious if all x35 are like this

I think it’s defective. I returned mine and got a new one which is perfect. Remember, when charged it will periodically blink when in sleep mode. The defective one wasn’t doing that either, although it did work. If I were you I’d contact the seller and get a replacement. 

Good luck

      Hi! after a year of snorkeling with TDI BH I concluded that I can clearly note the sensitivity goes down ones the voltage of my battery pack goes down.
      Other conclusion was that even at 12.6V the TDI BH is noisy underwater at maximum settings: it reacts to the waves.
      Thus at the moment I really prefer to have just a stabilized battery pack. For my experiment I took a couple of 21700 5aH Li-Ion cells and a dc-dc booster board.
      the plan is to get "one hunt" battery pack.

      I was looking for battery tray design for my Tdi SL which would allow 4 x 18650 batteries. As luck would have it on the local Prospecting Australia website  XLOOX posted a simple mod for a Whites factory battery tray. I don't know how to post links so the full description is to be found in the Prospecting Australia site. Simple cut out the guts of the tray, leaving the original battery connectors with mods on one end and a copper connector on the other.  I can fit Panasonic NCR18650B cells, without nipples but with protection. They just fit snuggly. The only issue is closing the lid, you need to cut a channel under the batteries into the base of the tray to allow for this. I'll cover this with a thin carbon fibre sheet and look at using a thinner sheet for the cover also. I will also add something to secure the batteries in position. Just waiting for the postman to deliver my carbon fibre sheet before finishing my own version of XLOOX's design. What I like most is that this is simple and cheap. Must confess I am aware of many different designs, since there have been no reports of smoking Tdi Sl machines I have finally decided to give it a go.
      All the best, Karelian

      I recently purchased these https://amzn.to/2yTnMWc
      They are the proper 1.5 volt and lithium batteries. They work well in my Tesoro that tends to chew up batteries fairly quickly. Will see how they hold up. They should not fade in performance as regular Alkalines do.
      $20 for 4 is pretty good. Much less than the $80 I paid for my AT Pro lithium pack.

      Hi folks, so I've ordered myself a TDI SL and spent a few hrs on line trying to find anyone that ships the RnB innovations 14.4v battery to Australia which proved to be an impossible task. So I went on to try and find the highest capacity longest lasting AA batteries for the dry pack and came across the Kentli 1.5v 3000mWh rechargable lithium polimer batteries. I have to say it looks like a brilliant idea but some of the reviews I seen aren't all that great. Now being aware that a lot of reviews are probably BS of one kind or another I have to ask who here has heard of or tried these? The idea of getting a constant 12v in the machine is appealing. Would be good to see some of you electrical gurus out there put them to the test?
