    Dedicated Lithium for Pair of Solix 10s

    I just added a Gen 3 Solix 10 to the bow for Mega 360. In total I will have a Gen 1 Solix 10, the new Gen 3 and Mega 360. I'm considering running a dedicated Ionic Lithium to power them. What amp hour will I need? According to Humminbirds web site, the amp draw for a 10 is 2.5 amps. Based on that 2.5x2=5 amp hours plus the 360 is 165 mAh. Seems like a lot. Does anyone have real life experience doing this?

    I can get a 30Ah for $269 but I'm not sure that is big enough.

    Might consider an Ionic 50ah

    Great battery and you might get 2 trips before needing to charge

    Not to mention who to say you won't add something in the future and this way you already have the power for it

    I have my 360 & Helix 10 on an 18ah and get 10 hours. Going to upgrade to a 30 just for the extra time but the 18 was all I could get in a pinch but it does the trick.

    I've got two Solix 12s and after a 12 hour fishing day a 125ah Ionic is at about 53%. This is if I leave them on 10 brightness. If you turn it down or put them in standby at all, amp draw is reduced quite a bit.
