Have you ever wanted to work on or study your Depth Finder or GPS in your house. With this one little plug, you can easily make it possible to plug in and power up a Lowrance unit in the comfort of your home, hotel, shop, etc away from your boat.

Thanks for the pointer...I've seen something similar with a smaller 12v battery from a drill or lawnmower. All these ways to work on your boat when not in your boat.

Great tip! Now a question from someone who’s ignorant about electricity…I see converters (part that plugs into the wall) in 5 Amp and 10 Amp options. The 10 Amp version is much more expensive - can I use the 5 Amp version? Thanks.

Specs says max power consumption on an HDSLIve 16 is 4.9 amps. Smaller ones are less. A 12 is 3.6 amps.

Academy sells the CA-8 cable for $40. The adapter is about $16 on Amazon.
