At what point, battery-wise, is it prudent to replace?

When your machine stops working .:laugh: I usually replace my batteries when I get down to 8 on the battery level from 12. You will start losing depth as the power decreases. I noticed this with my MXT. Duracells are my main batteries but I'm saving up for a RMB battery pack. These battery packs last 3 times longer then with replacement batteries. A very good investment.

If using my old MXT, once the batteries showed 10 volts, I knew I had to change them out. My machine would start talking WAY too much.

Now as for the RnB battery pack, I've never let it get down that far before recharging. The RnB battery, yes they are expensive but worth every cent. I love mine and I purchased it used. I can't say enough good about it. I think all last year, I only recharged it once. :clapping:

You're welcome. If you do change your batteries out, save them for other things. Larry could always use them in his machine when that happened. That way it's not a total loss. HH, Nancy

Increasing the voltage on the MXT, or other VLF machines, won't make any difference. The voltage, on both transmit and receive functions, is controlled by the power supply. On Pulse induction units, the voltage can make a significant difference in both depth and sensitivity.

As for the R & B battery pack, here's the info: https://www.kellycodetectors.com/catalog/li-ion-hp3100-12v-recharge-battery-system-white-s

I love my R & B battery pack.....It keeps on going and going and going. Much longer than the Energizer Bunny. Yes, a bit pricey but sometimes you can find a nice used one. :thumbup:
