FoxPro battery help

7 posts in this topic

I have the FOXPRO FX5, and I got tired of messing with those little AA batteries, so I ordered the heavy duty gel filled bag battery from Foxpro, I disconnect the inside batteries and remove them as instructed, I plug the charger that came with the gel battery and the light on the charger comes on green instead of red like the instructions say it will. When first hooked up the light will be red. when the battery is charged the light turns green, you can now plug this battery into the charge jack on the side of the caller and bingo, you have long lasting power, ha ha right, I get nothin at all, my caller will not even come on at all. Ive tried it about 10 times and nothing. ANY IDEAS??Thanks

Check with DABob.. he too uses a battery pack. See what he uses, he prolly has some insight. I have never had any problems with my FX5, except that when I recieved the Car charger it never worked. Foxpro sent me a new one. Have you got a volt meter? Check the charger, battery and the new cord that goes into the Foxpro maybe there is a short that can be easily remidied. Good Luck.

Well I think I got it. Checked the continuity at the charger plug in and there is no connection at the other end of the hot wire (internal problems). Boy couldn't come at a worse time. Called me a couple of yotes Sunday, got them both and was dying to go back. Thanks for your help.

Hey, no worries. Just post the exact location and someone from here, maybe several someones, will rush out and check on your coyotes for you while you get your caller fixed. :smiley_kewlpics:

Hey these guys at foxpro are alright. I shipped it out today (2 day delivery), he said they would only have it 24 hrs. and it would be on its way back to me. He agreed it has some internal problems. I here they are good for their word, so those yotes will wait on me. Sorry mtn dog, maybe next time.Good hunting to all.
