Field Test, By
I obtained a new RNB Innovations ML-2900 Lithium-Ion
Batt Pack rechargeable battery for my Minelab
Explorer (they work in the E-Trac and Safari as
I got it just in time to try out on my week long
road trip last week. I must say I was quite
impressed with how long it held a charge! I put it
through some rigorous testing.... I charged it for 2
hours before the beginning of my trip, and came home
1 week later with nearly 30 hours hunt time on it
and it still shows about 3/4 charge on my meter.
I did not go easy on it either! I hunted for most of
that 30 hours in very trashy parks and beaches and
in cold weather.... 2 things that kill battery life
of a lesser battery. I left my detector in the back
of my truck during a few nights when the overnight
temp dipped well into the low to mid 30's and it
came to life with a full charge each time I started
hunting in the morning. NMh rechargeables would
always seemed to lose their charge partially when
they got real cold.
It sure was nice not having to carry a couple extra
battery packs with me each time I was out hunting -
especially on the beach when I walked 3-4 miles away
from my truck. Car charger works great, and the coax
plug is larger in size to prevent accidental
charging with a NMh charger which isn't recommended.
All thumbs up for this great battery!!! Take care
impressions and field test on the ML-2900 Batt Pack
GOOD ...because this dang
thing hasn't dropped a bar lower even after 7 hours
of solid hunting!
I think this could end up being one of the best
assets to Explorer/E-Trac users in many years.
The following is a true statement and my friend Dave
will verify it.
The last time we hunted I had 3 fully charged (I
thought) Explorer batteries in my car as well as the
AA pack...and of course the one in my SE.
Well...15 minutes into the hunt my SE crapped out
with a dead battery.
No problem right??...Wrong!
I went back to the car and tried all 3
batteries...and they were all at zero charge because
they had been in the back of my car for weeks..
I then turned to the AA pack to save me...but
remembered I had taken 2 out to use in a flashlight
I would have been screwed if Dave wouldn't have
found 2 loose AA's under his truck seat...and that
is the truth.
We were many miles away from any convenience or any
other type of store...and I only had 1 1/2 hours to
hunt...so I would have just had to go home "huntless".
I have been told that this new ML-2900 Battery Pack
from RNB Innovations will hold a charge for a
looooooong time which would save a person from what
happened to me.
I've also been told that I can expect to get between
25 to 30 hours of use before a recharge is needed.
At this point I don't know...but I aim to find
out...and I'll keep you all posted with any results
as they come about.
Right now as I stated...right at 7 hours of use this
weekend and it still shows full power!...so I'm more
I'll keep everyone posted.....
ML-2900 Batt Pack & Charger
Got it today , another quick delivery thanks Joe. I
used the rechargeable battery in my SE for a 4hr.
hunt last night and the battery gauge is still black
to the top .Of course I expected that but to
actually see it happen is really nice . It's also
going to be really nice not having to have to worry
about re-charging so much .
