For a 55 lb thrust in a trolling motor, you will at least need the battery size of 240Ah rating. Depending on the speed, you will be using approximately 20-40 amps. A 240 is an ideal size, and it will last about 6 hours.

## What size battery should I use for a 55 lb thrust trolling motor?

Using a Newport Vessels 55lb thrust motor continuously for two hours at full speed would require a battery with a 100-120 AH rating.

## How many amps does a 55lb trolling motor use?

The Minn Kota Endura C2 55 Transom – mount 12V 55 lb. Thrust Trolling Motor has a max amp draw of 52 amps/hr but only 5 lbs more thrust.

## How fast will a 55 lb thrust trolling motor go?

Assuming perfect riding conditions, the use of the best fuel i.e. the distillate marine diesel, and moderate load, 55-pound trolling motors are likely to attain a maximum speed of only 5 miles per hour. This would take around two hours for the deep cycle battery charge to get completely depleted.

## How long will a 100Ah battery run a trolling motor?

A 100Ah lead acid deep-cycle battery will run a 30lbs thrust trolling motor on Speed 4 for 4 hours.

## How do I choose a deep cycle battery?

What To Look For In A Deep Cycle Battery

…

24 Volt Power Source.

Throttle Level | Thrust | Current |
---|---|---|

20% | 45 N-m (10 lbf) | 3 A |

30% | 70 N-m (16 lbf) | 6 A |

40% | 101 N-m (23 lbf) | 9 A |

50% | 140 N-m (31 lbf) | 14 A |

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

A 12-volt trolling motor is the most inexpensive and easiest to run. It does, however, lack the staying power and thrust that the other two provide. 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.

## What gauge wire is on a trolling motor?

Many trolling motors can be used with 8 gauge wire, however, the length of wire you need and the amperage of your motor can alter the size of wire you need. For example, if you need a longer length of wire, you’ll likely need a lower gauge and therefore thicker wire.

## How many horsepower is a 55 lb thrust trolling?

## What kind of battery should I use for a 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.

## How many HP is a 55lb thrust trolling motor?
