Battery For Trolling Motor

Recommended Posts

That looks like it's the size of a lawn mower battery? If so not long. I'd guess 10 to 15 mins max if you turned it on high and just let it run. Just to give you a rough ball park guess.

If weight isn't a problem you could check the junk yard. We have one here that sells used car battery's for $20.

You'll need a load tester to no your getting a good one. They may have one you can use.

If you link two together it would last longer then one deep cycle. Cheaper

If you have a Rual King store near you, they have reg. Exide 650 amp for $40 on sale all the time.

I'd be very skeptical of this battery as it does not show the reserve capacity.  That is the number you need to be checking to see how long it will hold up to continuous running.  I'd not get anything lower than a reserve capacity of 140 amps but higher is better.

Way too small for my liking.

 

 I'd also recommend something with more reserve capacity -

 

Perhaps you should ask this member - he's volunteering.

It's obvious you're on a budget. You got some good suggestions in the last thread you posted. The Walmart Everstart is really going to be your best bet.

It may have looked like I asked the same question twice, but I was just asking a more direct question to see if there were and other suggestions. I guess it will have to be an Everstart.

Amps: 200 marine cranking 160 cold cranking

You would maybe get 3-4 hrs with a 30 lb thrust

That's Academy's smallest, save up $30 more & get their bigger one.

If the trolling motor is the only motor on your boat then you better take some oars along to row yourself back to shore.  Like others have said Save your money and go to wal mart and get a good Everstart Marine battery.  I can run a 40lb thrust motor as my only motor, I fish on average 7-8 hours when I go out, I have never run it below 50%
