 >  > Ion Electric Ice Augers

Ion 40V High Performance Electric Augers are the first high performance electric ice auger. It comes in a 6" or 8" auger blade that cuts holes just like a gas-powered auger but without the bone-jarring, out of control experience that is characteristic of power augers.

With the Ion 40V High Performance Electric Augers, all you need to do is charge the batter and go out on the lake and start drilling. The battery on this auger will cut up to 40 holes of 2 feet  ice with a single charge. No gas, no oil, no fumes means this auger is able to be used indoors.

Features of the Ion 40V High Performance Electric Augers include:

  • On-board, high-energy 40V MAX lithium ion battery
  • Easy-grip handlebars
  • Large, ergonomically positioned trigger
  • 12" auger extension included
  • Compact, lightweight transmission with planetary gears
  • 6" or 8" steel auger
  • Straight tough design blades

About Me:
This my first ice auger, mainly because of the weight is the reason I bought it and really like it so far. Drills thru 20" of ice with no problems quietly! I do keep the battery warm in my coveralls when not using and charge it each night. It was a good choice in getting and ice auger. Price wise? Look at the price of the top of the line augers out there and they run the same cost plus gas, noise, weight. It was a no brainer for me.

Pros: fast, light weight, quiet

Cons: must be kept warm in pocket or shelter.

About Me:
Just bought a few weeks ago. I live in Maine and get to ice fish a lot. Had a jiffy for years and was just sick and tired of mixing gas and pulling the cord several times and smelling of gas. Ion cuts great no sound no gas no oil. I can put it inside my truck now with no worries of gas getting inside now. Haven't seen a bad review yet of this. It's the future and it should be since its very environmentally friendly to our lakes. Love this auger, so far so good. Fish USA was very helpful too. Thanks.

Pros: No oil no gas n always ready to go

What a cutting machine. We haven't had ice thicker than 6" yet this season, but my Ion has been fantastic cutting holes. It's lightweight and very powerful. My old strikemaster electra 12000 cant compare with this one. I can get 50X the number of holes with the Ion as i got with the other electric. I believe the Ion is the auger of the future and most ice guys will eventually go to them.


Pros: great cutting, fast, and lightweight

Cons: none

Best Uses: Drills lots of holes., If pulling out by hand and foot, this is the one to have.

Love it, but...

As I've gotten older, weight and ease of operation have become more important.  In this regard the Ion electric is incredible.  I'm once again actually scouting fish by drilling a lot of holes until I find them because it is now so easy.  The only issue I have is that the blade seems to be getting dull.  I've only drilled about 50 holes.  It no longer grabs the ice and drills the hole without putting my weight on it like it first did.  I couldn't find anywhere in the Battle Lake, Mn area that stocked replacement blades.  I don't know if it can be sharpened but would think that it should remain sharper longer.  Maybe a blade made out of harder steel would help.  I would gladly pay the higher price  if it were available.  All in all, I'm very impressed, but will buy a couple of sets of blades before my next ice fishing outing.


Pros: Lightweight, powerful, doesn't bind up in bottom of hole, battery charges quickly

Cons: My blade began to dull after 100 holes

Best Uses: none

Love this auger so far, drilled 15 holes in 8" of ice Saturday, battery still showed fully charged.  I don't leave the battery at camp, bring it home and keep it in the house, says it will shorten life when stored below 7F and it's going to 20 below at camp this week. Drilling holes is SO easy now and quiet also.


Pros: quiet, fast, EASY on the shoulders!!

Cons: none

Best Uses: stiring paint....

but catching on quickly !

I have been ice fishing for 30+ and have an old eskimo auger probably that old,and every year I would get that auger out and fix what needed fixing,spark plus,carb needing diaphram and smelling to high heaven of gas.Again,same story this year,get it out try get running,needed carb fixed, would run with choke partially closed,take carb off,gas smell all over,and my lovely wife says"let go see what is out there." Go to LLBean,looked at augers and they have many jiffy augers but I wasn't sold on those.I spied this Ion battery auger and had to even ask what it was !!! I said,SERIOUSLY !!! As many of you know their policy is if you don't like it,blah blah blah ! So in my mind,I was going to take it out,drill hole and return it to prove it was a joke.! Well,let me tell you that this thing kicks butt!!!I totally shocked me !! It's light,it's fast,seems very sturdy,(might not last 30 years like my ol eskimo)but whew! This thing rocks!! welcome to the 21st century !!! Ice fishing made easy this year... Real easy! My wife can use it ! Can't wait to get the granson out and let them go at it! Bring on the Ice Derby's!!!!


Pros: light weight, Really fast, battery life, Just totally suprising performance

Cons: None

Best Uses: Drilling many holes, catching many fish

No more mixing gas, no gasoline spills and smells, no worries about starting, and light weight handling to boot!  This is the way to go if you care to spend the money.  Strange to hear the ice cutting instead of a motor screaming.  Passers-by sure took notice as well.


Pros: light weight, clean, quiet, surprisingly fast

Cons: none

Best Uses: none

The auger drills a perfect hole every time with no gas smell or jerking.  The ice piles up without throwing it all over the floor of the fish house.  It drills very fast.  My husband loves it and I can use it too!  I could never start the gas auger.  That is a big plus for us!


Pros: ease of use, no gas, no worry about starting, number of holes drilled on only one battery charge, Awesomeness

Cons: None

Best Uses: none

I tried out my new ion ice auger today. It worked like a champ and cut thru the ice very quickly without stalling even when breaking thru.  It is very light wight and easy to carry around.  And  as you would expect it is very quiet. It seems very well constructed and rugged enough. The batteries work well.  I would recommend you get a spare battery. I think it is a stretch to say it will drill 40 holes in ice two feet thick.  I got 35 holes in about 10 inches of ice.  If you like to search for your fish and drill lots of holes get a second battery.      Jim
