Pettersson D500x Battery Pack

Product Description

For projects which call for D500 deployments lasting ~12-18 days between servicing, we developed an external battery pack using 4- disposable "D" cell alkaline batteries. This battery pack fits completely protected inside the Grab and Go ammo box along with the D500x and 25' cable.

The connector mates securely with a locking screw to all D500x built/purchased from 2013 to the present, and all Special Edition D500x.

Yes you can use rechargeable D cells, but they simply don't last as long, and because this is a 4 cell battery pack, only 4.8v is produced using rechargeable. This is on the low end of the voltage needed to reliably run the D500x. With cool weather and there may be power cutoff warnings. Please see our larger 6-cell Pettersson D500x Extended Battery Pack suitable for either rechargeable OR 1.5 alkaline batteries. 

Another power option is a 20 aHr sealed lead acid battery that will run a D500 over a month. Even hook up a solar charger and forget about it. Storing and maintaining a garage full of SLA batteries is harder than it sounds, and inevitably some of those batteries just don't last more than a season. The solar system adds more parts to a system opening up more risk for failure.

The "D" cells provide 13,000 mAh, while standard "C" cells that typically run the D500 internally provide 6000 mHh capacity. In theory, our "D" cell battery pack will provide more than twice the run time you are used to seeing on your D500x, on paper at least; real world results vary. 

As a side note, we don't recommend leaving -any- bat acoustic monitor unattended more than 2 weeks, so this battery capacity hits the sweet spot for regular service intervals.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask BCM a Question
  • Is there any way to make the extended battery pack compatible with pre 2013 models?

    Yes they would require a different end to be attached. Email jchenger@batmanagement.com with a quantity you are interested in purchasing for a quote. This is something we would need to construct special order and would take a few weeks if not in stock.
