Equinox Battery

Post by Wigeon » Thu May 23, 2019 6:35 pm

I am not an Equinox owner but take an interest in the posts about it.
I have seen it described as a sealed unit, so was wondering whether the internal battery can be replaced when it finally dies, as per the Deus batteries ?

Not sure on that . But I was speaking to a certain dealer who was saying he`s getting a sort of add on battery unit made to sell , which when the Original goes, you can use this add on pod and change batteries on the add on unit. That's as much as I know.

That was my question too, before ordering one. It 'appears' as though it's an easy replacement, providing that you can get the replacement battery.

I hope I'm not breaking any rules by posting the link.

The following is taken from the manual.

Even with correct care and maintenance, Lithium-ion battery performance reduces over time with normal use. Therefore the battery may need to be replaced every few years. Replacement batteries can be supplied and installed by an Authorised Service Centre.

Operating With a Power Bank
The detector must not be used underwater whilst charging or when connected to a power bank.You can use your EQUINOX detector whilst plugged into a portable power bank. This means you can continue detecting even if the detector battery is flat.Connect the power bank to your detector using the supplied EQUINOX USB charging cable, and continue detecting. You can fasten it to the armrest stand via the armrest attachment points.
