# Question: Will a 12 volt battery run a 24 volt trolling motor?

Contents

Either go 12 volt or add another battery and run the rated 24 volt. It wont hurt your motor. Most newer ones will not even turn over because the circuit board senses less than 22 volts (dead 24v system). Old ones will turn over but you will have half power.

## Can I use a 12 volt battery on a 24 volt system?

Do not connect batteries of differing voltages in parallel (positive to positive and negative to negative). Both batteries will likely be damaged, and a fire could result from overheating of components. Yes, you can connect a 12 volt battery in series w/a 24 volt battery.

## What size battery do I need for 24V trolling motor?

This is why most 24V or 36V trolling motors use 50 Ah batteries or larger. 24V and 36V motors have a high amp draw and needs multiple batteries in series to meet the power required. Wiring two smaller, 23Ah batteries in series may work, but you would only be able to use your motor for a short amount of time.

## What happens if you run a 12 volt trolling motor on 24 volts?

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. Eventually the magnetic coils will become so hot that the insulation melts and shorts out, or the insulation starts charring and burning until it again shorts out.

## Can I use a 12V power supply on a 24V?

Going the other way – 24V LED strips on a 12V power supply

If you’re trying to go the other way and connect a 12V power supply to operate 24V LED strips, unfortunately, you are out of luck. You’ll need to purchase a transformer or voltage booster, or, more straightforwardly, a 24V power supply.

## Can you charge a 24V system with a 12V battery charger?

You cannot use the 12V charger directly to charge a 24V battery. To do the task you will need a boost converter capable of generating output voltage greater than 24V.

## Is a group 24 battery good for a trolling motor?

Voltage. According to powerboat manufacturers, trolling boats 14 to 16 meters long should be equipped with a 12-volt battery. A 24 or 36-volt motor is needed for longer boats. Each of those trolling motors will be fitted with a 12v AGM deep cycle battery, with low hours of power supply over a long time.

## What size battery do I need for a 86 lb thrust trolling motor?

The 86lb thrust motor runs on two (2) 12-volt batteries connected in series.

## What size battery do I need for a 70 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.

## What is the difference between a 12 volt and 24 volt trolling motor?

Trolling Motor Voltage & Batteries

A 12-volt trolling motor is the most inexpensive and easiest to run. … A 24- or 36-volt system will allow the angler to fish longer periods out on the water, as they draw lower amps while providing increased thrust for more power.

## Does a 24 volt trolling motor need 2 batteries?

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 do you convert a 12v trolling motor to 24v?

24 Volt should be just two wires coming from the batteries to the trolling motor. You just have a jumper wire from one battery to the other. Positive to negetive on the jumper then hook the hot wire to positive on one battery and the negetive wire to the negetive on the other battery thats feeding the trolling motor.

## How do I power a 24v from a 12v?

Get 24 volts by connecting to 12-volt batteries in series. While you can temporarily increase a 12-volt battery to 24 volts by storing a charge and then releasing it, the effect is shortlived; once the charge is delivered, the voltage returns to 12.

## Can I use 24VAC for 24VDC?

24 volt AC/DC converters with 19 to 28 VAC input. These are also known as 24 volt rectifiers, and voltage regulators. … They can be used whenever 24VAC power is available and 24VDC power is needed, up to 60 watts.
