Might be in tune for an upgrade from my 12 Ultra.
The battery will come with the FLX28 and 30 Ultra but can be bought for all units.
I will be watching for them.
May your tip-up spool while your flag raises with hopes of landing the big one.

Depending on price I probably will have one.thinking about selling my flx28 and upgrading.ive had a few issues fishing in auto mode in deep water and id like a manual setting for 60+ feet.anything over 60ft and you have to use auto mode on the flx28 and in auto mode it sometimes gets confused and switches depth settings back and forth sometimes.also smelt fishing if they are in real thick it will read the fish as bottom and switch depths as shallower in auto.

Nothing special by the sounds of it. 12 volt 9 amp lithium-ion (Based on what the battery says, it uses LiFePO4 technology which leads me to believe that it is not in fact a LiFePO4 battery)

News Feed from FB

Vexilar Inc
 
HOT off the press! The NEW FLX-30BB!! More to come this fall but here's enough to get you excited!! Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer so far!!

Vexilar Expands into Broad Band Sonar Ice Technology

Minneapolis MN; Vexilar, world leaders in ice fishing sonar technology, has expanded their product line-up with the FLX-30 Broad Band sonar system. The legendary FLX sonar platform incorporates an exclusive brush-less data transfer technology for the best sunlight readable display in the industry. Now Vexilarís new Broad Band technology, made possible with a patent pending composite digital IceDucer, offers seven sonar frequencies to optimize performance. From a powerful 150 kHz to a high definition 300 kHz, the beam signal size variates from 20 degrees to 7 degrees.

The 525 lines of display resolution makes the Vexilar flasher sonars unbeatable in target ID and brightness. The FLX-30 eliminates interference, allowing the angler to select the proper frequency to remove suspended particles and insects from view to deliver the cleanest, sharpest and highest resolution display on the market today.

Additionally, ice anglers will love the five color palettes, three power output levels, 6-foot zoom ranges (6, 12 & 18), and a max depth performance of 300 feet. A giant leap in sonar signal display, the FLX-30 Broad Band system will only be available on the popular Vexilar Ultra Pack Carry Case which now hosts a long-lasting, lightweight 9-amp hour Lithium Ion battery.

For over 60 years Vexilar has been an innovator in sonar technology, from the first straight-line paper graph, the first LCD sonar to the newest WIFI based SonarPhone technology, Vexilar sonar performance and quality is legendary.

More to come this fall on the FLX-30. If you would like to learn more about any of Vexilar other great sonar products, please visit the web site

I read the flx30bb user manual the other day online somewhere..im on the fence as it sounds like a bunch of fiddling with modes and settings.im a vexilar fanboy but its because of the simplicity/ reliability and basically turn it on/set depth settings and fish .we will see tho.The flx28 in auto mode has frustrated me a few times with depth jumping.if had manual up to 100ft wouldnt be a problem.its only a problem smelt fishing when the fish are thick it reads the backs of the fish as true depth and then jumps around.drives me nuts.i may get a flx20 thats has manual depths for deep unless the flx30bb is affordable and somewhat simplistic.makes me wish i kept the fl18 and 20.my fl22 and flx28 are the only vexilars i kept.

Exactly why when the 28 first came out. took a look an decided that my 18 was just what I needed.
Keep it safe! JDL

I loved my old old old 18 too but got such a good deal on a 28 I had to take it and sold my 18.  28 did about the same as the 18 in my book except for a couple features I came to like. The big difference was how quiet the 28 was. I bought my 18 back last winter as a spare and used it a day last winter. All those things that were small differences to me at that time became clear as to being big differences when going back! The 18 seemed like an old clunker car with a bad muffler. Now Iím with the side that says the 28 was a huge upgrade. Iím not sure the 30 is going to be as big a change as the 18 to 28 was though. The 30ís battery is not a big deal to me as a hard house guy.

Well im seeing prices on the new vexilar flx30bb..about $800.no way would i pay that amount for a vexilar.they work great but theres no ground breaking tech for that amount of money.i will stick with my flx28 .all my cheaper vexilars work just fine at locating fish under the ice.might look at a flx20 to add to my fleet.
