Base battery housing
I generally run my base with the internal battery (7.4v/2ah) which gives me ~ 4-5 hours of run time which is ok in town but for odd rural job it is a bit short to have to head back to base. I’ve got a lemo to alligator clip cable but never used it, thinking I’d get the clips cut off and replace with spade connectors for more secure link.
Local dealer doesn’t even bother supplying Lecia GEB371 due to cost but puts a decent sized lifepo4 battery in a small pelican case with lemo plug for base and separate charging port so no cross connection but still around 1k when a charger and the lifepo4 equivalent of the old 12v SLA 7ah are about $200
I’m wondering about making some sort of basic weather proof enclosure (~1.7m rain pretty year where I am) for it (an old Trimble cowbell case??). Wondering if anyone has some examples. I know I’ve heard of this type of setup for static campaigns. Pictures/info about connectors be great.
