Anchor Barracuda PI Manual

Hi all, wondering if anybody has an old manual for the Barracuda by Anchor Detectors? I've recently acquired one in nice condition with both the 8 and 12 inch coils. This is my first step into the pulse world and it will compliment my excal 1000. The previous owner bought it used and it had been modded to use 8 AA rechargeables in a holder with a 9 volt connector as the original nicads were long gone. My concern is that it is suppose to run at 8 volts and currently runs at 12 volts. I took it for a test ride last Sunday and it performed well as configured but having had a little email conversation with CLIVE and being informed by him that it is designed to run at 8 volts. Will I kill this machine running it as is or should I convert to a 6 AA holder at roughly 9 volts. I'm no engineer and I don't want to burn it up. Any insight would be welcome. Thanks in advance and Happy Hunting!

9.6 volts

1.2 X 8 = 9.6 Volts

10 X1.2 = 12 volts

will run on either voltage but may very well be smoother and less noise at 9.6 volts

would not push higher 12v

Great detector, Ive found a ton os stuff with mine. You are better off running at 9.6 as Jimmy says (manufacturer-- for those who don't know). It's more stable and better in the black sand. I went to a RF car hobby shop and got a 9.6 cell that just fits. Be careful with your pots they are sensitive to impacts.

Out of the charger should be around 1.44 volts or tad higher, they are flat at 1.1 volts
