I have been using 9 volt batteries instead of 4 double a
Yesterday decoys ran for about 1.5 hours and then stoped
I pulled battery licked it but back in and it ran about 30 minutes and quit again
Is issue bad battery or is issue running 9 volts through 6 volt motor

Been doing this for years first issue

Lying is lying. Don't bitch about one doing it and condone another. That's called hypocrisy.

I run AA batteries and they are on there third season. Ive never had to change them at the end of the season I take them out and put them in a baggy with the mojoys. I have never tried the 9v. Could be the 9v.

I’d bet repeated use of 9v has caused the motors to quickly over heat and that’s what your experiencing. Especially when sitting in hot sun.

I’ve tried both and the quad AAs work better than a single 9v in my experience.

I went through a similar issue on another project, your answer is in this link. https://www.baldengineer.com/9v-battery-energy-density.html

Conclusion
As I said in my previous 9 V battery post, don’t be lulled into the myth that “9Vs Have More Power!11!.” When you do the math, their energy density is pretty lousy compared to the little 1.5 V cell.

If you can afford the space, you are going to be much happier with the energy provided by six AA batteries, compared to a single 9V battery.

The original Mojos where made to run on 6 volt feeder batteries, would run forever but lugging around a feeder battery was a pain. They switched to 4 AA's with battery pack. They tried 9 volts and backtracked real quick just doesn't give the performance of the AA batteries.

Mine have the 4 pack and have been lasting great so far. I usually change the batteries every season just to have a fresh set. Off topic, but I have really been impressed with how well they draw dove in. I have had several try and land on them this year.
