**trolling motor**horse power is to apply the conversion of 1 hp equals 750

**watts**. A 12 volt

**motor using**20 amps is

**using**240

**watts**, or 240/750 = . 32 hp.

Likewise, people ask, how many amps does a 12v trolling motor draw?

To use an example, a 55 lb thrust **motor** unit has a peak power **draw** of 40 **amps**. If you use the **trolling motor** for 6 hours at average 50% load of 20 **amps**, the **trolling motor** will then require a battery load of 120 Ah. (6 hours X 20 **amps**=120 **amp** hours).

Beside above, how many amps does a 45 lb thrust trolling motor pull? While the Minn Kota Endura C2 30 Freshwater Transom Mounted **Trolling Motor** (30″ Shaft) model takes 32 **amps**/hr to get that 30 **lbs** of **thrust**, this one can **do** 30 **lbs** of **thrust** for roughly 18 **amps**/hr. 40 to **45 lbs thrust** is roughly 29 **amps**/hr instead of the 42 **amps**/hr that those respective **motors draw** for the same **thrust**.

Consequently, how long will a 12v battery run a trolling motor?

A **battery** with a 1 Ah capacity **should** be able to deliver a current of 1 amp or discharge for an uninterrupted 1 hour. As a general rule, smaller **batteries** are usually rated at 25 Ah to 50 Ah and bigger deep-cycle **batteries could** be rated as high as 100 Ah. There is no ideal amp-hour rating for a **trolling motor battery**.

How fast will a 55 lb thrust trolling motor go?

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 many amps does a 70 pound thrust trolling motor draw?

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

70 lb. | 42 | 50 Amp @ 24 VDC |

80 lb. | 56 | 60 Amp @ 24 VDC |

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

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

**car battery**is 12-volts and

**can**power your

**trolling motor**. However, the length of time

**you**‘ll be able to

**do**so

**will**be a fraction of the time a designated deep cycle

**battery could do**it, and the

**car battery will**have a dramatically shorted lifespan if

**you**choose to deep-cycle it for

**trolling**applications.

###
How often should I charge my trolling motor battery?

**Charge**them after every trip. If it sits for longer than a week,

**charge**them again. Your

**batteries should**be

**charging**everytime you run the boat. if you run every week, you probably won’t ever need

**to**run the charger as they

**should**be fully

**charged when**you return

**to**port.

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

**battery**has an RC rating of 140. Divide that by 2.4 and I get about 58 amp hours. Lets assume my

**motor**is the Endura 30 mentioned above, and I

**troll**at speed 2, which is 10 amps draw.

**How Long Will** My **Motor Run**.

Amp Hours | Amp Draw | Hours Use |
---|---|---|

100 | 30 | 2.8 |

100 | 40 | 2.1 |

100 | 50 | 1.7 |

###
How much can you discharge a deep cycle battery?

**batteries will**generally fail after 30-150

**deep cycles**if

**deep**cycled, while they may last for thousands of

**cycles**in normal starting use (2-5%

**discharge**).

**Deep cycle batteries**are designed to be

**discharged**down as

**much**as 80% time after time and have

**much**thicker plates.

###
What size wire do I need for a 24 volt trolling motor?

**wire**is 8

**gauge**for most

**24**–

**volt**systems and 6

**gauge**for a system of 20 feet or longer. To account for voltage-drop, heat and current changes resulting from low batteries I recommend 6

**gauge wire**and 4

**gauge**for over 15 feet.

###
What size battery do I need for my Minn Kota trolling motor?

**Minn Kota trolling motor**will operate with any lead acid, deep cycle marine 12-volt

**battery**/

**batteries**. For best results, use a deep cycle, marine

**battery**with at least a 110-ampere hour rating.

###
How many batteries do I need for a trolling motor?

**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.

###
Do I need a deep cycle battery for a trolling motor?

**Deep Cycle Batteries**. Because

**trolling motors**require a steady, consistent source of electrical power, you’ll

**need**to use either a dual purpose or a

**deep cycle battery**. These two

**battery**types are designed to gradually discharge a large percentage of their total capacity over time.

###
Can you run a trolling motor off a solar panel?

**trolling motors**draw more

**power**than today’s

**solar panels**are able to put out constantly. In order to use

**solar power**on a

**trolling motor**without a battery,

**you**‘ll have to mount several high-end

**panels**on your boat.

###
How long will a marine battery hold its charge?

**Battery Charging**

Over time, these deposits **will** cause a 200 amp-hour **battery** to act more like a 100 amp-hour **battery**, and **battery** life **will** be considerably shortened. Once fully **charged**, **marine batteries should** be held at a considerably lower voltage to maintain **their charge** – typically 13.2 to 13.4 volts.

###
How long will a deep cycle battery last calculator?

**calculate**the amps at the

**battery**voltage . For example, say you want to run a 250 watt 110VAC light bulb from an inverter for 5 hours. Amp-hours (at 12 volts) = watt-hours / 12 volts = 1470 / 12 = 122.5 amp-hours.

###
How long will an electric motor run on a battery?

**battery can**hold, and the longer it

**will**be able to power a

**motor**at a given speed. For example, a 100 amperage hour

**battery**is one that

**would**be able to supply 25 amps of power for 4 hours (25 amps * 4 hours = 100 amp hours) before

**running**out of energy.

###
Can you run a trolling motor out of water?

**motor**is cooled by the

**water**around it, while

**running**it

**out**of the

**water**for a very short time would be OK, it would take a long time to drain the battery much

**running**the

**motor out**of the

**water**with no load. Why risk damaging a very expensive TM to just drain the battery down.

###
Are lithium batteries good for trolling motors?

**Lithium Battery**is ideal for most

**trolling motors**and is widely used by anglers who want enough power to last throughout an entire day of fishing. Type of Use : Mid – High Level – Average 6 – 10 hours of fishing.

###
What size trolling motor do I need for my boat?

Boat Weight (lbs) | 1,500 | 4,000 |
---|---|---|

Boat Length | 14-16′ | 21′ |

Minimum Thrust | 55 | 80 |

Performance Thrust* | 55 | 112 |

Motor Voltage | 12v | 24v |

###
How do I choose a thrust for a trolling motor?

**selecting**the correct

**trolling motor**for you needs. A general rule for determining the correct amount of

**thrust**is adding 5 pounds of

**thrust**for every 200 pounds of weight.
