…

How many amps does a trolling motor draw?

Motor Thrust / Model | Max Amp Draw | Circuit Breaker |
---|---|---|

101 lb. | 46 | 50 Amp @ 36 VDC |

## How long will a 35Ah battery run a trolling motor?

For example, you buy a 35Ah power battery and the average draw power of your trolling motor is 7 Amp. Dividing through equals 5 hours run time.

## How fast will a 45 lb thrust trolling motor go?

thrust trolling motor will still have a maximum speed of around 5 mph.

## How long will a 12v battery run a trolling motor?

6-8 hours seems reasonable with an older motor. Battery group size could play a role in life but on a 12v older power drive a 24 to 27 group battery running between 6-8 hours is in line with where you can expect yourself to be.

## What size battery do I need for a 30 lb thrust trolling motor?

The type and size of battery most suitable for a 30lb thrust trolling motor is a 12 V deep cycle marine battery with at least a 110 amp hour rating, which usually comes under group 27 size battery. The more will be the amp-hour of the battery, the more it will run.

## What size battery do I need for a 55 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. The higher the amp hour rating, the more run time you will receive.

## Can I use car battery for trolling motor?

a trolling motor battery is designed to deliver a modest amount of current for a longer period of time. … You need a deep cycle battery simply because it will take a longer time to draw the battery down. A regular car battery will work it just won’t work for as long as a deep cycle battery would.

## How long will a 100ah battery run a trolling motor?

For example a 100 amp hour battery should be able to deliver 100 hours of 1 amp consumption, or 10 hours at 10 amps, 5 hours at 20 amps, etc…

## What is the best deep cycle battery for a trolling motor?

10 Best Trolling Motor Batteries Compared

Battery: | Type: | Reserve: |
---|---|---|

1. BPS Pro Series AGM X-900 | AGM | 195 min |

2. Odyssey Trolling Thunder | AGM | 135 min |

3. BPS Pro Series Deep Cycle | AGM | 150 min |

4. VMAX Charge Tanks MR-137 | AGM | 230 min |

## How fast will a 30lb thrust trolling motor push?

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. The maximum speed of a trolling motor is 5 mph regardless of how many pounds of thrust.

## How fast will a 30 lb thrust trolling motor go?

with a sinlge 30# transom mounted motor i was able to reach 3.0 mph. if i went dual 30# tms, i could reach 3.2 mph. with a single 50# transom mounted motor i was able to reach 3.6 mph. i will be picking up a 55# thrust minn kota soon.

## How many horsepower is 55 lbs of thrust?

If you’re getting the full 55 lbf of thrust at this speed, then your hull has 55 lbf total resistance at this speed. 55 lbf = 0.245 kN, so (0.245 kN)*(1 m/s) = 0.245 kNm/s = 0.245 kW. That’s about 1/3 hp.

## Can you use a lithium battery for a trolling motor?

Minn Kota trolling motors can run on Lithium Ion batteries. However, they are specifically designed to run on traditional lead acid batteries (flooded, AGM or GEL). Lithium Ion batteries maintain higher voltages for longer periods of time than lead acid.

## Will 2 trolling motors make you go faster?

It’s not the typical “get it on plane, and get the bow out of the water” that we expect from the big gas motor. Two motors in the back will just push the bow a little higher in the air, and the stern will dig in deeper, slowing you down. The boat will be faster with a trolling motor if it’s level in the water.

## Can I run my 12 volt trolling motor on 24 volts?

To answer your base question – can I convert my 12 volt trolling motor to 24 volts – to give me more power or thrust?? The answer is NO. Essentially, you have a 12 volt motor. If you try to run it on 24 volts, you will burn it up.
