Review of the best according to the editors. About the selection criteria. The the material is subjective, is not advertising and is not serves as a guide to the purchase. Before purchase is needed consultation with a specialist.
Echo sounders greatly facilitate the search for fish in a pond. However they cannot work forever: the energy reserve in the built-in batteries very limited, and just forget to recharge them before fishing – a matter of everyday life. That is why it makes sense to purchase a portable rechargeable battery that can be adapted for recharging echo sounder.
In connection with this problem, the editorial office of the journal research of a segment, and selected 6 best batteries for echo sounders. When making the rating, we took into account the following parameters:
- rated capacity;
- user reviews;
- compliance of working time with the declared service life.

RDrive 6 DZM 12 electro
The most expensive, and at the same time the highest quality battery for echo sounders in our today’s ranking. RDrive 6 DZM 12 electro – it is a gel battery using Faston F2 terminals (6.3 mm), in Unlike all of the above competitors with F1 terminals (4.8 mm). Despite the small overall dimensions (151x99x106 mm) its weight reaches 4.3 kg, and the nominal capacity is as much as 16 Ah.
The advantages of RDrive 6 DZM 12 electro are obvious: gel the battery perfectly transfers discharges “to zero” and withstands up to 400 charging cycles, after which it still continues to work, albeit with less capacity. Yes, for its price you can buy 3 smaller lead acid battery but uninterrupted fact work and quality assurance from the manufacturer completely discourage all expenses.
- 16 Ah capacity;
- up to 400 charge cycles with a nominal capacity indicator;
- small overall dimensions;
- 100 A maximum discharge current;
- work at temperatures from -20 to + 50 ° C.
- high price.
The second line of the rating goes to the extremely reliable battery FIAMM FG20121A battery. It is designed specifically for those who value compactness and simplicity of the device and does not pursue the maximum characteristics at the lowest price. Its rated capacity is not exceeds 1.2 Ah and in the process always accurate corresponds to the declared value.
The dimensions of the AGM-battery FIAMM FG20121A are equal 97x43x53 mm, and the weight does not exceed 0.6 kg. Standard life at compliance with operating conditions is 5 years, and, as noted users, the battery “survives” to this limit in 80% of cases. In general, a great option for picking an echo sounder, however, is not for too long swims to the river.
- full compliance of parameters with nominal values;
- high quality workmanship;
- up to 5 years of uninterrupted service;
- compactness and light weight.
- small nominal capacity.
WBR HR 1234W
The maintenance-free WBR HR 1234W lead acid battery is The official source for the production of Leoch DJW12-9.0. In fact, the difference between these models comes down to a simple thing: Under equal conditions, their service life is almost doubled. Like in the case of a replica, this model has the following operational framework: 5 years of buffer operation or 260 charging cycles during cyclic use.
The overall dimensions of the WBR HR 1234W are fully consistent with the analogue, and the weight is in very close range (2.68 kg, as stated on the distributor’s website). Average user reviews – 3.9 out of 5 points, the reason for which is a frequent discrepancy declared capacity to real values.
- high degree of reliability;
- wide range of operating temperature – from -40 to + 60 ° С;
- 24 months warranty (official dealer);
- the price is lower than other analogues.
- Actual capacity may vary.
CSB GP1272 F2 12V / 7.2AH
The next line of the rating remains cheap enough, and in same time performance CSB GP1272 F2 battery with capacity 7.2 Ah As with Leoch DJW12-9.0, the life of this batteries installed for several operating modes: cyclic (260 discharge and charge cycles) and buffer (no more than 5 years). Overall the dimensions are average, and the weight does not exceed 2.4 kg.
One of the advantages of the CSB GP1272 F2 is the place of production. The batteries are not Chinese, but Vietnamese, and according to preliminary data on manufacture, rejection at the sales stage is not more than 4% of the finished product. In comparison, Chinese batteries may rejected in the amount of 10% of the total mass produced. Like us said above, this model of lead acid battery costs cheap enough and sold in almost all specialized stores.
- reliability – fulfills at least the warranty period;
- low price.
- actual battery capacity may be lower declared.
Delta HR 12-5.8
The Delta HR 12-5.8 is a slightly more “defined” battery for echo sounder than Leoch DJW12-9.0. The characteristics are modest, but the element of surprise is completely excluded – the user is always will know how long it takes to drain the battery left. Among the regulated characteristics can be noted 8 guaranteed years of service, as well as 5.8 Ah nominal capacity.
Among the advantages of Delta HR 12-5.8 can be attributed and overall sizes. Parameters 90x70x101 look much better than previous representative of the rating, and the weight does not exceed 1.95 kg. Temperature indicators are not standard, but generally cover all operational needs in conjunction with an echo sounder: hardly anyone wanders around use the device at a temperature of -20 ° C.
- made by AGM technology;
- relatively low price;
- 8 years of service;
- compact and fairly light lead acid battery.
- not found.
9 Ah lead-acid AGM battery A great option for picking the echo sounder in long swims – not the most small but not very big. Its overall dimensions are 151x65x95 mm, and the weight does not exceed 2.75 kg.
According to the manufacturers, the average life of the Leoch DJW12-9.0 makes from 5 to 8 years when working in the buffer mode. If take into account the cyclic method of operation, then the battery withstands up to 200-250 charge / discharge cycles. Therefore timing uses will vary widely from frequency of departures to fishing and their duration.
- 9 Ah capacity;
- acceptable price;
- operates in the temperature range from -40 to + 60 ° С (at discharge).
- withstands up to 200-260 charge and discharge cycles.
