So I finally got my new 12v 6.8ah lipo Battery to replace the 12v 5ah sal battery I was using to power my fish finder.  I went from 4 lbs 2 oz to an anorexic 14oz! Looks like i can carry more rods now! What a Face

Fleabay. $19.60 shipped. Took 3 weeks to receive. You can also get a 8ah or 9.8ah for a lil mo dough.

Thank you Sir. Do they need a special charger? I've seen posts of guys talking about lipo batteries but I don't know anything about them other than they are a lot smaller and lighter than sla batteries.

Check out Hobbyking.com tons of lipos. Make sure to buy from the USA warehouse shipping is usually 2-day mail. I have a Turnigy 4cell 5000mah 20c $22. C rating does not matter for fish finders, so buy the cheaper low C packs.

You do need a good charger I use. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] $46. you can get away with some cheap wall chargers but they take good amount of charging time. Remember never to drop your cells below 3.0V per cell. Thumbs Up

The one I bought came with a charger. When it gets low it'll charge it overnight. Oh yeah these battery packs automatically shut off at 10.8v so you won't over drain them.

I got both of them at wallyworld. The small one is in the fishing section and the big one is in the camping section. Like $6 and $10. Sport chalet has them both too.
