My battery in my Nox is fine. I pursued ordering a battery. Just for a spare and to seek out the process so I could share with folks.
First I called number 1-877-767-6522 (Minelab customer service) and talked to lady named Julie. Julie referred to the following number in PA - 814-283-4270 (Minelab repair center). I called this number and spoke with gent named Dan Diehl. He stated I was actually the first to buy Nox battery. He while I had him on phone had just realized the batteries were at their facility for sale. Price is $30 USD. He said total price including shipping was $39 for a nonsignature required usps delivery. I used a credit card. And that’s it. So the number above for Dan is the number to call to buy battery for Equinox.
As a side note I inquired about their repair backlog. He said they were in good shape. With only about a week of backlog repairs on hand. I asked this due to possible lasting effects of Covid 19, plus I wanted to be able to share with folks accurate info. In case some were not sending in their units for repairs fearing long wait times.

I have three detectors that have a internal battery and one I’ve got two coils that’s like the detectors they too need to be charged. Let’s not forget they come with wireless headphones.
Then I have three other detectors that I can use recharge batteries if I so wish . None of the three have wireless headphones. To me the great thing about them is when sitting idle I can just remove the batteries.
I’ve never had any trouble with the ones that have a battery in them but every so often I’ve got to make my rounds charging each up.
It’s been said the next Nokta/Makro will have a removable battery.
I’d like to hear your view point of what you like best in what ever it may be .
Thought I'd share this cool little inverter I just got. Some of you may already have it but I thought it would be good for those that have not seen this yet. It's really small and hopefully will work for field applications. I already charged my CTX battery and module with it with. IIf you have lots of Milwaukee tools like I do already it's a no brainer to get one of these as I have about five different batteries that I could bring along on a extended trip. I dont know how well it's going to work so I'll have to up date later on. If you have one already then let us know.

I've picked up a 1970's-era Garrett BFO in decent shape but it is missing the battery tray. Kellyco and Garrett no longer carry them, though Garrett says that they have other trays that should work. I'd really prefer to get the one that matches the detector. Anyone got one laying around that they would part with? I've attached pictures of the detector and what I thinkis the correct battery tray.
