    I have over 10 batteries and have done the long way of testing them. Putting them in a old super mojo that really draws power and recorded how long each one lasted. With these new decoys they can run really long.

    So does anyone have a easy way to test a 6v battery? I want to know what new battery for amph and what my used ones are at.

    Thanks so much!

    Battery load tester would be the way. Being a sealed lead acid type battery your only going to get so many years out of them.

    Best to first wire them in series if you go that route...test them all at once:tu

    Mark your batteries with the date you bought them. For $5.00 - $7.00 ea., I just rotate mine and buy a new one every couple of years.

    Install two wire plugs that hang out the bottom of each Mojo. Daisy chain an extension cord made out of 12/2 standed wire and run them all off one 6V golf cart battery or a 12v deep cell with a speed control
