Favorite Trolling Motor Battery Type

6 posts in this topic

Well, I think it's been since 2000 when I last got new batteries for my electric trolling motor. I'm pretty sure one of them is ready for replacement since it won't take a complete charge (based off the charger lights). I'll probably replace them both at the same time.

What manufacturer/type does everyone recommend? It is a 24 V system, and I am currently running gell cells. I figure anywhere between 6-8 years is pretty good, but looking for people's recommendations to replace the batteries.

I like my Intersate batteries. 24v system, 70lb PD V2. Aluma Trophy 180. So, its not a very light load. Troll around all day. Havnt been able to totally drain em yet even beating em up on Mille Lacs.

The (GNB?) Stowaways (group 31) I bought several years ago still seem to be doing fine.

I have ran Interstates for a long time and have had very good luck with them. There customer service here in Superior is very good and thats what keeps me going back.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
