  1. Steve, I'm surprised First Texas did not include coil cable wrapping/securing instructions for water hunting, to prevent cable movement and noise problems. Jim Pugh noticed the problem in FL. right away. Bill
  2. Joe, well if you have any extra shorty or big batteries, I'll take one. If not, put me on the list for the next round of batteries. Thanks for all you do for the "rest of us". Bill
  3. Hey Joe, can I be on the list for the big EBL 26650 battery setup. FYI I have 8 EBLs on-hand. Bill
  4. Joe, so you are getting 5 hours and 30 minutes run time on the 4 EBL 26650? Glad I ordered 8 of those EBLs! I'm interested in buying your waterproof setup for my future AQ Limited. Let me know and great finds with your "new" modified AQ. Bill
  5. Pimento, Yeah, like Steve said they are "dirt cheap" and if they don't work out, I can always spend $20+ each for a high-quality 26650 battery. I'm hoping to get 5000 mAH out of these.😀 Last night I found the EBL batteries on AliExpress and ordered 8 of those, just to have some backup. Hope they show up at my mailbox.😂 Bill
  6. Steve, Based on the website I ordered the 4-pack 26650 8000 mAH li-ions, flat top battery with protection and a 2 slot charger from Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B086RGS6TX?tag=homeelectr0a1-20&linkCode=osi&th=1&psc=1&keywords=26650 Battery Bill
  7. Steve, good engineering job on that AQ hombrew battery system! I followed your design and just ordered the battery holder and cable, but now the EBL 26650 are out of stock on every website! Since I'm awaiting my AQ, I have some time to wait for the batteries and components. Bill
  8. Carolina & Joe, how can we fix the power cable problem and what is that status of battery mods? Thanks, Bill Future AQ owner
  9. I've also read the terms from Fisher and have no issues with them. Rick has my purchase request email and I'm looking forward to using this new PI technology with discrimination. Bill.
  10. Jason, Glad to see you back on the gold! Great story and explanation on the X coil operation at Quartzsite. How do you think the 17" x 12" will run in Northern NV with wet, salty ground? Bill
  11. Mitchel, glad you also received your 15" x 10" X-coil and have some resources to make the connector mods. As soon as I'm ready & able, I'll be doing my cut & solder using Chet's, Dave's & Phrunt's instructions...all good info! Not trying to start some more GPZ coil wars, but on the GPZ 7000 AUS FB page I found this on the NF coils: "I hear that Rohan will be making the patch lead for you Still need to cut the plug from the original coil to make the patch lead"☚ī¸ Bill
  12. Steve, At Rye Patch, NV. across the road from the burn barrel, one of Gerry's guys buried a nickle 18" deep and all the GPX units with an 11" coil can detect the nickle. I doubt if any VLF could see that nickle!😂 Bill
  13. My Northern Colorado club is very small and most of it's members don't have the resources for newer high performance, multi-freq detectors. They have older VLFs like White's DFX, Garrett AT Pro, Ace and even some BH. The club mostly focuses on relics and coins. I'm considered the "outsider" that likes to hunt for those elusive gold nuggets and old coins, using high end Minelab PI/GPZ units. Bill
  14. Just read on another forum that LE JAG will soon be testing an 8" coil on the Fisher Impulse AQ! Should make some folks have a Happy New Year. Bill
  15. Wow Rick, everything questioned in our minds was answered...as expected, the Fisher Impulse AQ will be a great tool when used properly. Expect it will be impressive not only in the salt waters, but also on the beach and in the US freshwater lakes and rivers. Can't wait for mine to be delivered! Bill
