AT Max Z-Lynk Headphones - No Battery Level Indicator?


Recommended Posts

Is it me, or am I missing something here.

How do you tell how much battery capacity there is?

I believe somewhere I was reading about the universal  Z-link  module led will blink with 3 hours left.

Is this true for the headphones?

If so, that would drive me crazy not knowing the level until then.

Scenario: Leave the house to detect 6-8 hours or more, hour into the hunt led flashes, meaning only 3 hours left,  for a total of only 4 hours.

This will cause me to recharge the headphones before every hunt. Even iIf they didn't really need it.

Probably shorten battery life, too.

If this is the case, maybe Garrett needs to add a battery level meter on the headphones or wireless to the AT MAX with an icon showing the level on the display.

Your thoughts?

The MS-3 standalone and MS-3 with Z-Lynk module headphones both have low battery indicator LEDs on the left side of the power button. If it starts flashing, 3 hours or so are left. I just charge them once a week or so. They do seem to last 20 to 30 hours on one charge.

Some of my bluetooth headphones have warning chimes when there is 1 hour or so left which to me is good since I definitely will not see the LED on my Garretts blinking when they are on my head.

Otherwise, the MS-3s are really nice.

Jeff, I thought I read somewhere that the MS-3 last only 8- 10 hours.

But if they last 20 to 30 hours, then I would only charge every 2-3 hunts.

Which wouldn't be that bad.

I have only used this machine approx. for 20-25 hours total, so It's new to me.

I also have a Minelab Equinox 800, and with the bluetooth headphones, I can pair it with my cellphone

and see the battery percentage on my phone .

I think this only works on late versions of android though.

So, want I am determining is, that this is a down side of the Z-Link tech.
