Baby Mojo Batteries

Postby Duckaholic-Anonymous » Tue Sep 10, 2013 6:38 pm

Anyone have a decent solution to the double A battery powered mojos? I hunt a lot and I hate buying more batteries.

Many thanks in advance!

Not many choices here- buy more batteries , use rechargeable batteries, or use different SWD.

6 AA batteries in parallel is 7-9 volts. The voltage of the standard mojo battery is around 7.5 volts. Cut the 9 volt terminal off, crimp on some female spades, and run the regular battery. You'll get better battery life in cold weather too. Disclaimer...i have not tried this yet but will be doing this to one of my mojos this weekend to test it out.

Does the 6 volt fit fine inside the baby mojo?

Don't know how old it was, but know what sure looked to me like a Baby Mojo that I hunted over last week was built for a standard Mojo 6v battery. Only problem I had with it was the box inside was sized slightly small to make it tough to get non Mojo brand batteries in it, I assume a battery marketing scheme. This is it with my "oversized" generic battery:

I run 7.2v R/C car batteries in mine. Just cut the original connector off and solder the new one on inside the mojo, charge the batteries and run all day.

I run the batteries and charge them with the charger on this page. They work great and are easy to handle.

Then wire one of these in your mojo.

Hope this helps..

If you go to a battery place (Battery Plus) you can find a 6 volt battery in pretty much whatever size your need to get it to fit.

You can also get batteries carriers at most electronic stores and could wire in one that used D cells instead of AAAs.

If you cut over a AA mojo to 6v single battery, get some velcro and use it to secure the battery to the inside of the decoy. i found it cuts down on noise and the chance of your battery falling out and breaking a wire connection during transport.

You can find replacements on Amazon for cheap. Cabelas wants 14.99 got em' on there for 9.99. Generic version that is still 6v 4.5AH and fits in the battery compartment.
