    When do you charge your XP batteries?

    Well, I have a month into the Deus and am really enjoying it, especially in the nails etc.

    I have a few questions concerning the batteries.

    How far do you let them go down before charging? 2 bars left? 1 bar?...till dead?

    Do you charge all 3 units at once and keep them all topped off or just charge each item as necessary?

    How long can you detect with 1 bar left?

    Thanks

    At the end of a hunt, I check the coil battery and I charge the coil when it gets down to one bar (or 2 bars if I know I am going on a long outing for the next hunt) and go ahead and top everything else off (controller, headphones, and pinpointer) while I am at it.

    When I'm not too tired to remember, I plug all three pieces in every night. These batteries don't have a "memory" so it won't hurt.

    What?!

    You have more faith in the charger than I ever will, gamblin' man.

    I hope reconsider how you charge batteries and that you never experience component failure that leads to a house fire.

    Charge them as needed. I only go hunting every now and then, so.. 1 bar or lower.
    But if going on a long hunt the next day, yes, I'll charge them to be sure.
