    They had some higher mAh batteries but only two in stock so I grabbed their standard ones.

    You have a Frys near you? I thought that was just a Bay Area thing.

    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    They actually started here as a grocery store. Then began selling memory chips. Pretty soon, they no longer sold grocery's, LOL.

    H-10PM Quick and dirty M12 battery conversion.


    I ran it for about 15 minutes this morning with no low battery indicator.

    Tonight I will test the run time on a fully charged M12 16wh (1.3ah) battery and time permitting on an M12 XC 32wh (2.6ah) battery.

    I spent a few hours researching how to convert the H-10PM to Li-Ion battery power with the batteries being stored in the original location below deck.
    To do it that way I would have used (6) 2800mah 18650 batteries in a series-parallel configuration to give ample run time.
    The problem is safely charging them.
    There are boards that can be soldered to the battery assembly to make charging more safe and there are chargers out there that can charge these setups.
    They are typically used for radio controlled cars, drones etc.
    If I cannot get enough run time out of the M12 setup I will order what’s needed to do a good 18650 setup and post back.

    I put my conversion on hold. The detector has a issue now. After start up I get a constant alarm on high sensitivity. It settles down after a few minutes in medium and is usable. Some oil might have gotten on the board accidentally. There was some kind of residue on top under the folding cover. Been debating a new purchase of a "tool box tough" detector that already has a L-ion

    New sensor took care of the alarm issue.

    I have an inverter in my van, I usually charge it after each job. If it had a long leak detection run, or if its the winter time. that is one way to maximize the on time with the OE battery.

    Hit the low battery today. Three leak checks plus a little time messing initially. Not sure I started at full charge. Will give it another cycle but might need more battery.

    I would think 6x 18650 paired in series/parallel (double what is in the picture) would work...
    Also, there is a 26650 battery... has more power density than the 18650 battery.

    I’ve been running 6 18650’s in series parallel.
    The pump sounded weak and didn’t work very well.

    My batteries were only 1500mah. I may try some 2800mah or I may try 8 18650’s with a voltage regulator.

    I went back to an original style battery.
