My Nocqua has Gone Goofy... Options?

14 posts in this topic

Went to top off my battery, and got a flashing red light that never went away. Now the red light flashes on the charger whether the battery is connected or not. I contacted Nocqua, they responded right away that I'm out of warranty, but they will replace the charger for s&h. They also would sell an upgraded charger, a battery, or a full set at a discount of what seems to be about 40%. Getting the kit (which seems to have the "better" charger) for $89 shipped seems like a good way to go, as I cover myself in case my battery also went bad, or I get a spare.

 

Any thoughts?

Once I changed the mother board in there I had no issues. Use that one as a spare. Sounds like they are tightening up for those of us out of warranty.

That looks like the one. I vaguely remember your issues now, it was a board in the charger?

No, the bms board in the battery. Yours may be the battery charger. If not its the nickel strip or bms board. Nickle strip can corrode. Mine did.

You may want to mix up some epoxy and coat that strip to seal it better from the elements. 

 

 

Thanks. I dipped it again in rubber. I would have thought these batteries are 100 percent water proof in the rubber but somehow moisture can get in.

 

Again, SLA batteries, Don't have that issue.

Mine is suspended from underside the forward rodholder mount in the hull with bungies. If it gets wet, I might be swimming home.

Same here but I think salt moisture just finds its way in.

The replacement kit arrived, with the new charger al la Riddler's post. My old battery works well enough, kind of takes a while to go from 75% to 100%, then drops off a little quickly for my taste, but should still have plenty of juice for a couple trips. The new battery covers are camo, so they won't spook fish from inside my hull, I guess.
