Frequent question: What is the best battery for a 36 volt trolling motor?

A typical setup for a 36-volt trolling motor is to run three 12-volt marine batteries in a series to achieve 36 volts. Three 100 Amp Hour (AH) lithium batteries in a series will power a trolling motor running at the same speed roughly twice as long as a series of three conventional 100 AH marine batteries.

What size battery do I need for a 36 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.

How many batteries do you need for a 36 volt trolling motor?

While small and medium trolling motors use a single 12v marine battery, larger trolling motors use larger 24v and 36v systems, and require 2 or 3 marine batteries, accordingly.

Do you need 3 batteries for a 36 volt trolling motor?

36 Volt Systems (3 batteries): 1. Three 12-volt deep cycle batteries are required.

Do they make a 36 volt deep cycle battery?

Dakota Lithium 36v 63Ah Deep Cycle LiFePO4 Single Battery

63 Amp hours (Ah) of capacity is optimal for 36v trolling motors with up to 120 lbs of thrust or What does MCA mean on a battery?

CCA is the cold cranking amp rating which tells you how many amps will be delivered to the engine in cold temperatures. MCA or marine cranking amps is conceptually the same rating, however, the CCA rating is based on amps delivered at 0℉ and the MCA rating is done at 32℉.

How long will a deep cycle battery run a trolling motor?

Amperage Hour Rating

In more technical terms, a 100 amp hour rated battery can deliver 100 amp hours of current to a trolling motor. So if a motor was running at low speed and pulling 4 amps, the battery should last around 25 hours.

What gauge wire should I use for a 36V trolling motor?

Eight gage wire is fine for the length of the original wire. If you can hook the original wire directly to the batteries it will be fine. However, you will be increasing the run if you add more wire, therefore you also have to increase the size to 6 gage.

Can you run a 36V motor on 12V?

Whereas if you are using an electric steer motor, then lower volts won’t be a good idea to use for the same. Therefore, its not suggested to run a 36V trolling motor on 24V or the 24V trolling motor on 12V as it will burn up.

How long does it take to charge a 36 volt lithium battery?

This 36V lithium charger is rated at 8 amps and will charge a 36V 63Ah battery in How many batteries does a 36V take?

Connect up to four 12V batteries in series to create 36V or 48V golf cart battery systems.

Can you run a 24 volt trolling motor on 36 volts?

According to Minn Kota you can run a 36 volt motor on 24 volts: BUT, it will run hotter, draw more amps, deplete the batteries sooner, and run the risk of damaging the batteries from over heating. The iPilot function and steering motor may not work. All in all, probably not a good idea.

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.

How long does a 36V lithium battery last?

You should typically expect a battery to last between 2 and 4 years if it is well maintained. (A lithium battery will slowly lose its capacity over time, even if it’s not used.)
