    Minelab Equinox Battery Failure- Code BF

    I wanted to post this in case your Equinox starts acting like mine did. For the past 5 or six charges the green light would blink but never go solid green indicating it was fully charged. The meter on the display indicated a full charge. I was out detecting in the water at the beach when the unit went dead even though the screen showed the battery was still have charged. It would power on for a few seconds to give me the code BF and then go dead again. I contacted Minelab and they told me the code meant I had a catastrophic battery failure. I have had my unit a year now. It was still under warranty. I was lucky. So if you get this code you will know what is going on with your unit.
    If you don't look for it you won't find it!! So get out there and dig it.
