Lithium Shuttle
« on: Nov 24, 2022, 12:44 PM »
I was thinking of purchasing this along with a Marcum SD+ Camera and attaching my Marcum LX 5 to it.  I'm worried about how well the Lithium Ion batteries work out on the ice.  Anyone use this unit and like it or dislike it?  I like the fact that I can attach the Camera to the unit. and have both the sonar and camera there together but have concerns on how long it will run.  Any advice will be appreciated.

There have been reported issues with the lithium battery in the Marcum shuttle being as it's so close to the ice. Something about the operating voltages with the cold and recharge threshold.
This video explains it.



I recommend getting a Marcum Roamer shuttle instead as it comes with a 6 amp hour lithium battery and USB connections.

Looking over the Roamer Shuttle, does it have spots for adding the Gooseneck accessory arms?
