  • Hi Jason
    Yesterday i got a used but in excelllent shape AQ1B, never sumerged in the water. The question is this.
    The detector comes with the Nicad charger and the front panel said AQ1B, but has i know, this charger is used on model AQ1A, not AQ1B.
    I measured the batteries voltage and was 9.1 volts afte purchasing the unit. Last night i charged the battery for just 6 hours cause i had to run to my office. All in all i measure again the voltage and i got 9.8 volts.
    The detector works fine, but sometimes it gets some unstability and is difficult to tune it, may be because i m located inside my home that is under a big power lines that can cause EMI to my MD. Same thing happend with other PI units.

    About the battteries i suspect that this unit was upgrated from model AQ1A to AQ1B, but the battery charger was not is the same old version for Nicad batteries.

    Any commets that can help me will be appreciated.
    In advance many thanks

    Hi Scubafinder,

    I noticed you're associated with Wichita Falls, Tx by reading some of your posts. Do you live in WF or FLA? You ever dive in Wichita Lake where the old pavilion was?

    I'm retired AF and have lived in WF for 12 years and recently got into metal detecting. I typically hunt for coins but I'm interested in the following quote from one of your posts "There is a civil war camp and crossing site right here in downtown Wichita Falls". I've never heard of this before...would you be willing to elaborate on this civil war camp?

    Thank you,

    Jerry
    Jason:
    I got a LinkedIn request from you. Did you really send this? I am always suspicious of third party messages on behalf of other forum members. If you did send it, I will respond.

    Luis, our forum was open to the public for a few hours right after the upgrade. Nothing bad, but a few people poked around. Best I can tell they didn't realize they were in a secret spot and just browsed a few threads and moved on.
