Great product that is a snap to instal. It took me less than 20 minutes on my PA 12, including the Hook 4 fish finder. After a full charge and a full day fishing, my battery hasn't dropped below 50% any time I've been out. I like that the battery holder raises the battery slightly off the bottom of the kayak because I tend to get a little water in the hull when the waves are big. It's overall a great product in my opinion.

At first I thought it to be a bit pricy, but like all hobie products it is designed very well and is very convenient. If I get any other Hobie kayaks, I will be putting another one of these in.

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.

Q: how long do you charge battery after each use
A: This battery should have a semi charge upon arrival and the initial charge should only take 1-3 hours depending on your charge output. These batteries are typically really good at being reliable and have a long longevity.
