Lithium-Ion battery pack for Minelab Explorers
Posted by: Tony N (Michigan)

Got this bad boy for my Explorer detectors. Takes 2 hours to charge from a complete discharge. I've used it for 5 or so hours now and
the battery indicator on the Explorer has not moved at all! It's supposed to last 30 hours before needing re-charged!

One of the biggest complaints about the e-series has always been the battery life. The RNB takes that situation and turns it COMPLETELY around. It is straight up UNREAL as far as run time goes! Glad you like it Tony, you and whoever else has bought them! Quality battery with a quality charger for the price you'd expect to pay for something of this caliber. LOVE my 3100...

Are you a seller of them?

The other really great thing about this battery pack is no more lugging around 16 rechargeables to put into my two re-fillable battery holders for the Explorer and spending HOURS and HOURS
recharging the little boogers.

I remember going detecting to a park and forgetting to recharge my rechargeables. Luckily I have my recharger with me. But I could only charge 4 at a time. Needless to say, I spent a lot of time
at the McDonalds that day waiting and waiting and waiting.

No I'm not a dealer, just a user. That same sentence has gotten a lot of people out of trouble in the past...:crazy:

You are funny!
By the way, the Lithium-ion battery is lighter than the NiMH.
I just weighed both on my postal scale.
Lithium = 6.5 ounces
NiMH = 8.8 ounces

A weight reduction of 2.3 ounces.

I have 2 of them . The earlier 2900 which lasts over 30 hours and the 3100 which lasts even longer . My Explorer's and E.Trac will never need new batteries ever . They might as well be Nuclear powered .



Uses = Minelab E.Trac , Minelab Explorer 11 (might sell) , Minelab Explorer XS , Minelab Equinox 800 x 2 (ordered) , Garrett Probes , Gray Ghost/ Nugget Busters

Or as former president George Bush called it: "Nuculer."

Yea, they are that good. I got the 3100. Battery meter still hasn't moved.
