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.
Will a 24V trolling motor last longer than a 12v?
I am trying to figure out if I need a 24V or 12V trolling motor and cannot really determine the factors that should play into the decision. Would love any perspective/help. Thank you. The 24 volt has more power usually and lasts longer in the wind than the 12 volt.
How long can a trolling motor run on a battery?
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.
Are 24V trolling motor good?
That’s to say, you may expect more power, longer range, and runtime from a 24V trolling motor since the 24-volt battery bank has 2x more battery capacity than 12v motors. Besides that, even at the same thrust, a 24v trolling motor is more efficient with a lower amp draw than 12v which also makes it lasts longer.
Do you need 2 batteries for a 24 volt trolling motor?
We recommend that you use separate deep cycle marine battery/batteries for your Minn Kota motor if you use a crank battery to start a gasoline outboard. There are two batteries in the 24 Volt Systems. There are two batteries that need to be deep cycle.
How many batteries do you need to run a 24 volt trolling motor?
If you have a 24-Volt motor, you can use 2 12-Volt batteries in series or a single 24-Volt battery and if you have a 36-Volt motor you can use 3 12-Volt batteries in series. 2. Which RELiON 12-Volt battery should I use for my trolling motor?
How many amps does a 24v trolling motor draw?
The Force trolling motor can run on 24 volts or 36 volts, and the chart below shows how a 24v setting will draw higher amps then running at 36 volts.
24 Volt Power Source.
|10%||25 N-m (6 lbf)||2 A|
|20%||45 N-m (10 lbf)||3 A|
|30%||70 N-m (16 lbf)||6 A|
|40%||101 N-m (23 lbf)||9 A|
What size battery do I need for a 55 lb thrust trolling motor?
For a 55 lb thrust in a trolling motor, you will at least need the battery size of 240Ah rating. Depending on the speed, you will be using approximately 20-40 amps. A 240 is an ideal size, and it will last about 6 hours.
How can I speed up my trolling motor?
Make Your Trolling Motor Faster
- Make Your Trolling Motor Faster.
- Change the Battery.
- Reduce the Load of the Canoe.
- Fix a more Streamlined Propeller.
- Put on Lighter Attire.
- Replace the Existing Motor.
Can a 24V trolling motor run on 36V?
Thus, one can use a 24V to run a 36V trolling motor. Even the amperes used by a 24V trolling motor depend on the speed setting, current, wind, boat weight, etc. You can run a 36V trolling motor on 24V, but I would not recommend doing so.
What is the difference between a 24V and 36V trolling motor?
A 36v will generate the the same thrust at a lower power setting than a 24v at a higher setting, so the 36v will run longer. You have a small boat so I would be most concerned about the added weight of another battery.
Is there a 24V marine battery?
The 24v DL 54Ah battery is optimal for 24 volt trolling motors w/
Do trolling motor batteries have to match?
Batteries in series should be matched for capacity so they don’t “fight” each other. You can use a Trollbridge12X24 that puts the batteries in parallel whenever the trolling motor is not running. This will allow the weak battery to receive battery-to-battery charge and equalize their voltage.
Can you run a 12v trolling motor on a 24V battery?
The motor was designed for 12 volts and was designed to dissipate the heat from 12 volt power. When run at 24 volts the coils will heat up much faster than at 12 volts, and the motor will not be able to release the heat quickly enough.
