This mod is great at least for me and still works great. Are you tired of all that wire? Then cut it and shorten it. I checked with the manufacturer’s and the reason for all that wire is for boats so it will reach were they want to mount there finders and reach there batteries. All I did was cut it and soldier the wires back together and it still works great without all the mess. Hope this helps and works for anyone wanting to do this mod. Also I did this mod on a lowrance elite 5.

Thanks hope it helps people with the same problem I had. I will post a pic later of it. Also I use lipo batteries for my power source I also fly RC planes and drones and the batteries are smaller and lighter I will include it also.

I use LIPO as well in my RC car.
That’s a great idea and it get’s you away from the 5 to 6 pound batteries.
Simple fix ... it’s just not good for the battery to run the LIPO battery low.

Yes that’s right. I use a 2200 mah and it will last for about 4 hrs that’s why I bring an extra battery. But I’m going to get a higher mah battery like a 5000 mah that will last all day. Here is my setup.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Dude nice work I love the ability to minimize the battery and maximize the use of your space onboard.

Thanks it works great as long as your willing to use it only for your tube I have an extra transducer if I want to use it on a boat. Also you can’t get these batteries wet so I put them in a small dry bag then inside.

I’ll have to figure that one out. I was hoping I could just use my phone camera and video and post
