Is a 35AH battery enough for a trolling motor?
Lead Acid Wet Cell batteries are the most affordable option for your trolling motor. We often recommend this 35ah battery, this 55ah battery, this 70ah battery, or this 100ah battery on Amazon.
How many ah do I need for my trolling motor?
Most trolling motor batteries fail due to lack of proper charging. We suggest selecting a 12 volt deep cycle marine battery with at least a 110 amp hour rating, usually a group 27 size battery. The higher the amp hour rating, the more run time you will receive.
How long will a 12V 35AH battery last on a trolling motor?
This little powerhouse is perfect for my little one-man boat with Minn Kota Endura 30 trolling motor. Lasts at least 4+ hours of fishing, running the motor a lot.
How long will a 35 Ah battery last?
35 ampere hour is a ‘Standard’ unit of measure for batteries. It means that this battery will deliver 35 amperes at a nominal 12 VDC over a 20 hour period.
How long will a 100AH battery run a trolling motor?
A 100Ah lead acid deep-cycle battery will run a 30lbs thrust trolling motor on Speed 4 for 4 hours.
Can you use a marine starting battery for a trolling motor?
Types of Marine Batteries
A starting battery should not be used for trolling motors or powering appliances. Marine Deep Cycle Batteries are designed to discharge slowly over a long period of time and to withstand several hundred charging and discharging cycles.
How long will a battery last with a trolling motor?
Almost 5 hours doesn’t seem too bad, but that is really a max runtime in ideal conditions. Reality is likely to be less. If the battery is old, damaged or not fully charged then you will not get the rated amp hours from it, reducing your runtime. Significant cold or hot weather will also reduce your runtime.
Can you run 2 batteries on a 12V trolling motor?
Yes, it will charge both batteries. You may want to considering buying 2 new batteries to do this with. If you put two different batteries or one old & one new, it will pull off one faster than the other. I have 2 12 volt batteries hooked up in parrallel (pos to pos and neg to neg).
How many horsepower is 30 lbs of thrust?
Pounds of Thrust to Horsepower Chart
|Pounds of Thrust (lbs)||Amps||Horsepower|
Can you run a trolling motor off a generator?
The only way to power your trolling motor from a generator is to use what is often called a RV Convertor. This device converts the 120VAC voltage into 12VDC. The output amperage of the convertor should be equal to or greater than the maximum draw of the trolling motor.
Will a higher thrust trolling motor go faster?
Electric trolling motors are chosen by thrust. Higher pounds of thrust WILL NOT move a boat faster. In fact two 55 pound thrust motors will not move you any faster than one 30 pound thrust motor. Higher thrust 12V trolling motors are designed for bigger heavier boats with larger payloads.
How can I make my trolling motor battery last longer?
Use your trolling motor in calm water as much as possible. When the motor has to fight against chop, strong winds, and strong currents, it requires more power and will drain the battery more quickly. As batteries age, their capacity will generally decline, while their internal resistance increases.
