    I want to replace the baby mojos next year with teal decoys. I don’t want to mess with 4 aa battery packs however. To my knowledge, this is the only way they come.
    Is there enough room in the body of the teals to fit a rechargeable 6 volt battery, like the ones in the lucky ducks or baby mojos have? Lithium rechargeables would be another better power source altogether, I don’t know which one to order that would fit. The wire splicing in the conversion is easy, the challenge is finding the battery size small enough.

    I don't think a regular 6 volt battery will fit in a teal.

    Four D cells would fit.

    Uhmmm, I believe he was trying to rid himself of a multi-battery set up.

    Thanks for checking, do you guys think there might be a 6 volt lithium battery that would fit?

    I would love to see a spinning wing coy that would take a Milwaukee 12v Li ion battery.

    I tend to agree the battery compartment is small for that...I was able to squeeze a timer in there with the 4AA pack...might have to rig up the proposed bigger battery on the pole/upright....what would be cool would be a solar-panel powered mojo!

    Put me in mind of the old Auto Duck, aka: "colostomy duck," with powered by 7amp 6volts in a bag hanging beneath them:

    Ducks didn't seem to mind.
