Minelab Equinox 800

Minelab Equinox battery doesn’t work (water in battery compartment)

The proud owner of the Minelab Equinox 600, nicknamed palangsi (dankowskidetectors.com) shared his sad story. His machine battery stopped charging after a few days of use, so he decided to send it in for a warranty repair. The post office, however, refused to accept the parcel because of its contents – the defective electronic device, plus a Li-ion battery. After informing Minelab of the situation created, palangsi opened his Minelab Equinox to remove the battery. But what he saw inside was appalling… Every Minelab Equinox 600/800/1000 owner should be aware of this! Continue reading

If your Minelab Equinox can’t pair with wireless headphones

I wonder whether Garrett managed to make a million dollars selling headphones? And how about Minelab? If not, they won’t be able to get it done.

Minelab Equinox Waterproof Connector (adapter at low price)

However strange it may sound, but the Minelab CTX 3030 owners feel indignant. Everyone has been aware of the fact the Minelab Equinox waterproof headphones connector doesn’t fit into any socket on other Minelab devices. But recently Minelab announced the price for their Equinox waterproof headphones — $130.

Even despite the fact that these ones are identical, the difference lies only in the connector. Do you think Minelab did it deliberately or inadvertently? Continue reading
