    i just got my LHR-80 in the mail today. The led on the charger is not working (not sure if it’s just the led or the charger) and the battery pack (which has the belt clip on it) pops off the device very easily. The device falls right off leaving just the battery and clip on ur belt. I will see update after i speak with Lowrance about both issues. I’ve been waiting on hold for 20 mins so far and it said i had less than 5 calls ahead of me when i first got on! I’m not too happy.
