This a was a very easy install on my Revo13, everything I needed was included in the kit, I did use a few more cable ties and scotchlok connectors....the battery resting in the rear hatch is the way to go.

Compared to putting a my Lowrance on my last kayak - a Trident Ultra 4.3 - installation on my new Outback has been a breeze. The Outback has a Lowrance compatible mount on the bottom and well placed cable outlets on the hull. And this all-in-one kit is the easiest way to get the rest of the job done. I just dropped the battery holder in my rear twist-n-stow hatch and used the plastic connectors that allowed me to splice the fish finder power cable to the battery cable without solder and electrical tape. Neat, secure and done. Worth the $

Top Question & Answer
Q: I just received my install kit and will be installing my Lowrance tomorrow. My question is, can I use the battery to power led lights on the kayak as well? I ask because the instructions specifically state not to cut short the wiring as it will interfere with the fishfinder. I've never heard that before and it really doesn't make sense to me, but figured I'd ask and see what y'all thought. Thank you. Matt
A: This is a possibility, however it is not recommended. Basically, these batteries are not powerful enough to run multiple items for extended periods of time. You will be able to run this, however your fish finder may not provide the most accurate reading as it would not be receiving the adequate power.
