    What kind of battery do you recommend? Motorcycle, lawn mower battery? I just recieved my kit and cannot wait to get em’ installed and then out to the water.

    I’ve had inquiries as to what battery I use. Normally, a 7aH battery like we use for a fish finder or deer feeder is more than enough. You could step up to a 12aH or so if you anticipate using a fish finder as well, or if you will be camping and not have the ability to recharge your battery for a week or so.

  5. Brian Frank says:

    Thanks for the advice. How much running time will a 7aH battery give you with these lights?

  6. GlockGuy says:

    Even with every light energized, to include the submersible, I’ve been able to run them for days. I’ve never run them so long that the battery died.

    One more question and this will probably qualify as the “dumb question”. The boots on my switches have a lot of slack between them and the actual toggle underneath. Is this normal and were yours like that? The boots are not intended to be heat shrunk are they? I am thinking about getting some more.

    • GlockGuy says:

      That’s how they come. You don’t heat shrink them. It was important that the threaded portion was brass and not a ferrous metal. The trade-off is that the boot is a bit long. Some of us take it a step further and fill the boot with dielectric grease to keep it REALLY waterproof.

  8. Brian Frank says:

    Are the boots on these switches intended to be shrunk with heat? They are twice as long as the toggles underneath.

  9. Brian Frank says:

    I never would have guessed it. Thanks for the advice!!!
