Mojo teal

Postby Tinner4 » Tue Sep 24, 2013 6:01 pm

Hubby was looking at a mojo teal but doesn't want to deal with replacing AA batteries.. anyone ever converted/rewired it to be used with a larger battery like the mojo rechargeable ones?

You can just put a resistor on the large large battery if there is too much amperage going to the motor on the decoy. How many AAA batteries does it take?

Oh shoot I don't remember I guess I could look it up I'm thinking two though? We just looked at one yesterday at Cabela's... He just hates dealing with batteries dying. I figure we probably would just have to give it a go and see if a larger battery would fit in the back.

I'll check out the motor specs for you. I have one teal mojo as well, but if I remember correctly, I don't think I could fit another large mojo size battery

Ok I looked at it. A few options
A. Buy the 6v rechargeable battery, should fit the teal very small. ( just cut the battery pack out and put crimps to fit battery terms)
B. Wiring harness for the gadwall can be spliced onto the hot and neutral wires on the teal and connected to a 9 V which would give you some descent time in the field and alot quicker than switching out 4 AAA's

Theres a few other ideas I have, just trying to keep it easy lol

Those both seem pretty simple... I'm guessing all of the mojo batteries he has floating around are the 6 volt, so probably would make sense to do that. Hrmm.... has me thinking about buying it and wiring it myself then giving it to him! Haha he'd be shocked if I did it for him!

But, if the Teal is 6 volts (taking 4 AAA batteries) and the Gadwall is 9 volts (7.2 volts actually), a resister should still be used if going the 9 volt route. The 4 AAAs are 1.5 volts each making it 6 volts. I would look for any rechargeable 6 volt that would fit and wiring it with quick disconnects. Wasn't there a thread last year when Mojos were burning up running 9 and 12 volts?

I agree with your hubby. I hate dealing with non-rechargeable batteries. I bring rechargeable spares for every spinner and never have a problem.

Battery run time is different for every hunter. Hunting twelve hours a day runs batteries down. Hunting a few hours here or there of course a battery will last a season.

I have one and only changed the batteries once all season. I wouldn't worry about changing it out.

I use a Mojo teal daily in the September season and have found battery life pretty remarkable with single use alkaline AAs, but you could always opt for premium rechargeables lasting much longer per charge.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.
