Juls rather than a spare battery, how about packing a spare charging cable and plugging it in to the usb port?

I broke down a bought a spare remote because I can only fish about 6 hrs when using my remote regularly.

All of the above posts about the charging system plug in are 100% correct. Makes me angry, that a guy can purchase a $10 toy that has a more dependable, easier to use charging system than the MK system.

Now there is an alternative I have not though of! Expensive, but effective. Like I stated the micro remote is much cheaper and I have not needed to buy a new cord either. They could do better on the cord, but the special functions that the actual remote are needed for are a very small percentage of button pushes. It also stays connected to my PFD for anything I need to adjust. I change the button battery once per season. Leave the LINK remote plugged in on the dash. JMO Bob

Bob I went to the spare remote because I ran my remote down ONCE and I found out that can cause lots of problems with the unit. I had to take the motor it off and send it in for service. So I vowed never again will I run it down below the .25% left mark.

I have been there a few times in life. If a little more money fixes something for you. I am all for it rather than the aggravation. Fishing is supposed to be fun! JMO Bob
