I really need a battery end cap for my excal. My only option is to buy a new battery pod for $179 on E-Bay. Any suggestions?

I don't think the alkaline one is waterproof. Just good for beach work
Same endcap just a different shell. Good to 10 feet under.
Ok good deal, also I need a cap to accommodate the pinpoint mod that you have several great video instructions on.
I thank you for your help OBN.

Oh on another note I see that you are using the CTX and having good luck. Congrats.. I used to have one but now I'm having fun with the Garret ATX pro.

It will be this winter, the problem is the female ikelite cost 30.oo shipped if buying a bulk amount, then the 9 volt connector and Acrylic rod is about 3 dollars, then the endcaps I charge 18.oo to make, so the price would be about 53.oo each shipped, but I do believe they will last the life of the machine and never crack. What I may do is make 10 this winter, sell them and let them be in the field for a year just to make sure we have something that will meet everyone's needs. I have one on my machine right now testing with the LiPo Battery. Sooner or later everyone is going to need one or two because the stock crack over time...

McMaster-Carr has waterproof connectors...dont know if they have those..take a look,cant hurt---that type of connector looks heavy enough to be used for ac power so you might look from that direction too.cant imagine only minelab uses them

Hey OBN, I know this is an old post, but did you ever find a female connector with the same size hole as the ikelite?
