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.
Just a short note on Joe’s “shorty” AQ battery. It fits well under the cuff and balance was not noticeably effected from the lighter than stock battery. Run time for me in “tone mode” was 6 hours 20 minutes. It is my understanding that in all metal it is approximately one hour less. The M12 (CTX) phones connector was a welcomed change and the power cable with a small loop and ninety degree connector also worked well. Get one of his battery set ups and avoid changing batteries in mid hunt, while they are available. I believe he has other set ups with even longer run times. Knocked it out of the park again Joe, thanks.

I even bought the universal charger with 4 USB ports from Minelab and NEVER used anything but this to charge the machine.
I have used it three times, I plugged it in the first night and I though it charged it fine. I had not been paying attention and today the fourth time I took it out it flashed BF.
Left charging all day and green light even stays on indicating that it is fully charged but when I turn it on its flashing the battery meaning its less than 5% charged.
very frustrating, going to try another charger that has greater than 2 amps.
Thanks for any comments / feedback
Being a Fisher Repair center for the South East Back In Los Banos era I met and talked with some very incredible people from Jim L. President of Fisher Research Labs To a few legendary Relic hunters of that time in the south east that needed help Repairs inspiration or a pointer in the right direction......
To this day I still have my Repair manuals and updates some the best electronics ever conceived Mike asked me not to sell or give out the technology .....I have always kept my word.
I would have 3D printer or a jig and router and a one inch extension of the battery lid on the 1280x or Cz casing.epoxy or use to battery gaskets......throw in 5 gallon paint pressure tank filled with water and compress tank 90 psi no leaks good to go.....
get rid of the connector issue In and out of salt
Batteries not included....due to shipping etc each customer would order batteries and charger from battery store online.....this set up 4S2P would give 7 amp hours copper 3m tape and foam 4 series times 2 parallel .
