What battery I need to run my trolling motor?
Most electric trolling motor will operate with any deep cycle 12-volt marine battery. But for the longest run time and lifespan we recommend lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries. Here’s 4 reasons why:
- Lithium Valley LiFePO4 batteries will provide double to triple the run time. More run time means more fishing time.
- LiFePo4 batteries last longer and will need to be replaced less often. Providing piece of mind and greater lifetime value.
- Lithium Valley LiFePO4 batteries weighs 60% less than deep cycle lead acid batteries.That means more maneuverability and speed. And the batteries are easier to carry when you need to charge them.
- You need less batteries when you use a lithium iron phosphate battery. If you power a trolling motor with a deep cycle lead acid battery you would only be able to use half of the capacity of the battery before the voltage is too low to run the motor. With LiFePo4 battery you can use all of the power of the battery(If 80% battery life span will be better) , means that a 120 Ah battery from Lithium Valley is equal to 200 Ah in lead acid batteries.
