Battery Capacity: While more than 300 fish have been landed on a single battery charge over 3 days without the battery going dead, and 250 walleye from a depth of 20 feet in a high producing Canadian Lake over the course of 2.5 days, you never want to be caught having forgotten to charge up your battery, or your battery was accidentally dropped in the water when launching...
