The ION Files (Battery operated Ice Auger)
Cold weather is hard on any battery. We recommend not leaving your battery in your auger laying on the ice, but instead pull the battery out and keep it in the warm house. The Ion battery is a lithium battery and has no memory, and is good for 850 cycles.
Even if I get only 3 years out of the batteries, it is worth it. No gas smells and no more pulling on the starter rope. I wonder how many rotators have been dinged if not damaged when an old cold shoulder has to do a few rips? Probably not for everyone but so far , so good. Mrt.
