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.
How long will a group 27 battery last on a trolling motor?
For trolling motors use, we recommend a battery with AT LEAST a 100 amperage hour rating, a Group 27 rating and 175 minutes of Reserve Capacity (RC).
How long will a 24v trolling motor last?
This will give you maximum speed and power and is often necessary on a large boat, or in strong winds. Thus, if you operate your trolling motor at maximum speed, you will typically get about 2 hours of use from a fully charged pair of “average” batteries. Possibly 4 hours of use for the larger extra capacity batteries.
How many batteries do I need for a trolling motor?
If you have a trolling motor on your boat, you will require usually two to three deep-cycle batteries to power it. Unlike gasoline-powered engines, trolling motors run on stored battery power.
What size battery do I need for a 45 lb thrust 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.
Can you run a trolling motor off a car battery?
Will my car battery work for my trolling motor? No, car batteries are not recommended and can ruin your motor.
Do I need a separate battery for my trolling motor?
If you have an electric trolling motor, thruster, windlass, or other battery powered accessories that draw larger amounts of current, you’ll want a separate deep cycle “house” battery for that purpose. A deep cycle battery is only meant to be used where high rates of discharging and re-charging occur often.
How many amps does a 50 lb thrust trolling motor use?
Thrust Trolling Motor has a max amp draw of 52 amps/hr but only 5 lbs more thrust. 3. Because of the larger windings in the 50 lb thrust model, lower speeds use less amperage for the same thrust.

Which is better 12v or 24v trolling motor?
12-volt trolling motors are usually less powerful than their 24-volt counterparts. This makes them less suitable for larger and heavier boats. Higher voltage systems, such as 24V or 36V tend to be more powerful and more efficient, due to the lower current flowing through the cables at the same power output.
