Used batteries

When 8 batteries of my Soverreign GT are ended, he gives me a signal. Instead of putting out, I use these batteries in my DFX and the display shows me a charge of 10.8 volts.

Has it already happened to you ???

Been having 10.8 for awhile come to think about it.

You can drive a DFX by 8 AA NiMh cells, not a Minelab.
The Minlabs will use 10 of those NiMh cells, not AA size but 10 for 12 Volts.
And if only 1 cell is defective in the pack, nada.
Had 2 brand new NiMh packs for the Sov. and when the 3rd one died after
8 month I decided to sell the Minelabs.
The DFX still goes strong...

It has been years since DFX days but it seems the DFX works fine down to about 9 volts. I used my wifes AA's she took out of her MXT and I got about 10 more hours of hunting with her rejects.

Bells and whistles are nice, but nothing will substitute for the basic understanding of the hobby.

:minelab: CTX 3030
