And again, the 36 volt motor uses 40 amps running wide open so it would run for about 3 hours running wide open with a heavy load.
How many batteries do I need for a 36 volt trolling motor?
A 36-volt trolling motor needs three separate 12-volt marine batteries to function. To achieve the required 36 volts, three batteries are connected in series, increasing the voltage.
How many hours can a trolling motor run?
Almost 5 hours doesn’t seem too bad, but that is really a max runtime in ideal conditions. Reality is likely to be less. If the battery is old, damaged or not fully charged then you will not get the rated amp hours from it, reducing your runtime.
How long will a 35ah battery run a trolling motor?
This little powerhouse is perfect for my little one-man boat with Minn Kota Endura 30 trolling motor. Lasts at least 4+ hours of fishing, running the motor a lot.
Can a 36 volt trolling motor run on 24 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.
What is the best battery to use for a trolling motor?

What size battery do I need for my 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.
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.
How much weight can a 30lb thrust trolling motor push?
So the maximum for a 30lb thrust motor would be 30*100/2= 1500lbs.
Can you run a trolling motor off a generator?
The only way to power your trolling motor from a generator is to use what is often called a RV Convertor. This device converts the 120VAC voltage into 12VDC. The output amperage of the convertor should be equal to or greater than the maximum draw of the trolling motor.
Can I use car battery for trolling motor?
Will my car battery work for my trolling motor? No, car batteries are not recommended and can ruin your motor.
How fast will a 45 lb thrust trolling motor go?
1 40# TM pushing a 12ft boat 4.3 is impressive. Most guys here that run all electric run 150# of thrust or better to get 4.5mph.
Is 35 AH enough for trolling motor?
Check the specs of the trolling motor. For example, the Minn Kota Endura 30 uses 30 Amps per hour on “5”/the highest setting. If the 35 Ah battery is a lithium battery you should get almost all of it’s stated capacity, so you could run about an hour or more on speed “5”.
Can a 36V trolling motor run on 12v?
Yes, a 36 volt trolling motor can be run on 24 volts.
Will 24V motor run on 12v?
24v hooked to 12v will spin for a while on a full battery but there will be no torque. You could stop it with your hand. It is like running your motor with half the spark plugs missing.
What is the difference between a 24 volt and a 36 volt trolling motor?
Simply put, with group 31 batteries, and the motors on 1/2 power – you will be getting about 8 hours of running time on a 24 volt motor. Running the same thrust on a 36 volt motor will get about 12-14 hours of running time. If you run both motors wide open, you will be getting about 2-4 hours out of each motor.
