Panoptix ice bundle run time?
« on: Sep 13, 2018, 10:54 AM »
I致e never had a power issue with the 12Ah battery, but my soft water sessions have been limited to about 8hrs. It is not uncommon for me to stay on the ice 12hrs+, battery performance is degraded in cold temps, and I知 a little concerned that a single 12Ah will not be enough battery. Has anyone measured the run time while ice fishing?

Thanks,
Mark

I only just got mine a month ago, so I知 interested in this info as well. I was planning on getting the lithium battery but those are 10ah vs the 12 that comes with the unit.

I'm testing the battery overnight. Fully charged 12Ah, running simulator on DownVu at 100% backlight.

I think to be an accurate test for draw, you need the ducer connected and sonar on.  From what I understand the ducer is what causes the higher amp draw.  I ran my echomap plus 73 with Bluetooth and wifi on for probably 6+ hrs and it only lowered the voltage of my sla 12ah battery by .2 volts.  What I need to do is get the LiveScope connected and running and see how fast it drops.  I should figure out how to check the amp use with my volt/amp meter.  There will also be a variation of amps drawn by the ducer... Garmin rep told me this but wasnt exactly sure what creates this variation.  It says in specs 21w typical with 58w max....for LiveScope. The panoptix ducer says 48w for her but the ice bundle says 6.2w for  consumption.  So I don't know...it's all pretty confusing.

The battery died sometime during the night. All I can say definitively is that the battery lasted over 4hrs, but less than 11hrs.
Echomap chirp 73cv
PS22-TR
Backlight 100%
Running DownVu (simulator off)
12V 12Ah AGM battery

So, for my purposes (12hr+), I知 going to need to carry a 2nd battery. I have several 12Ah AGMs, but at 8LBs each, I知 considering moving to a pair of 10Ah lithium.

Good to know, thank you for running the test. I知 going to be using mine in my boat today, I知 using the mount from the 妬ce stick on my trolling motor. Since the trolling motor is all I have for my mini bass boat, I致e decided I知 going to get another trolling motor transom bracket and use the ice stick in it so I can pan around without changing directions.

Get 2 dakota lithium and wire them in parallel for a 5# 20aH battery setup!  Another thing to consider is that you're likely not going to have your backlight set to 100%.
