    Sounder Battery - How To Charge?

    This type battery doesn't usually come with a charger unless it is a package deal put together by the seller. If you want the battery to last, you will need to get a charger for it. Batteries die quite quickly if they are run down too far and/or not recharged promptly. And any warranty would be void. You really should get a "smart" charger. Overcharging kills batteries just as dead as leaving them flat. A small low amperage unit will do the job on a battery like this. With a half decent smart unit you can leave it on for some time past full charge without harming the battery. Good ones can be left on indefinitelty. CTEK make really good multi-stage intelligent chargers, but they are not cheap, and as Tybo said, they would be over the top for your little battery. I have never used them myself, but Jaycar have basic smart chargers for about $30 - $40 and a 3 stage smart charger for about $50. You should be able leave the battery on permanent float charge with one of these.

    Mission Point Advice

    Cant comment on the ramp/carpark situation, but as for Mission Point itself, take LOTS of mozzie repellent. They can be almost thick enough to pick you up and drag you back into the swamps where they live. Once when I wanted to camp on South Straddie for a few days I canvassed a few houses near the ramp. Concentrated on ones that were on larger blocks with space to spare. I got lucky and found an elderly couple who let me park in their yard. Could be worth a try.

    resolved Cannot See Pics

    Thanks Drop Bear, I now have K-Meleon showing all the pics. Not quite sure what was causing the problem as I fixed it by restoring to default settings and then activating only the options I really needed. As for pics of my own - I'm just getting back into fishing after a long time away from it, and I have not yet caught anything worth getting the camera out. As soon as I boat a worthy catch, I will pic and post it.

    Thanks for that ellicat. Looks as though it must be a browser setting. I'm ruuning Windows 10 on a PC and using the K-Meleon browser, so I tried with Firefox and it works OK. I didn't suspect the OS or the Browser because I can see the pics on other forums with that pairing. However I can now see them and know what I have to sort out thanks again, deegee12g

    resolved Cannot See Pics

    I'm a newbie on this site and I can't see the pics in the recent posts. I can see them in at least some of the older "stickies" but not in current posts. Is there some criterion that I have to meet (e.g. time or number of posts) before I can see them ???

    G'day Fellow Fishers

    G'day all, I'm Don and I'm just getting back into fishing after a few years away from it. I have an old 4.85m Express with a fairly new Honda 60 on the back. In the past I mostly fished Moreton Bay and not too far offshore from the Gold and the Sunny Coasts. Since I got started again it has mostly been the bay. Nearly finished fitting out a 12ft punt with electric power so I can fish Hinze and NP dams. Cheers, Don.
