I am currently using a AGM as my house battery. But my next battery will be a lithium. As i bought the batteries from China, this was a trail run for them and didnt want to sink too much money into this. Looking back at the shipping cost, i should have just bought a 3rd battery and be done with it.
AH wise, my research shows lead acid can run down to 50% and Lithiums' down to 15% usable AH's. So there is a ~35% gain in usable AH's in Lithiums.
As I've stated earlier, I couldn't kill the 60AH lithiums in 2 days of fishing.
These batteries also charge incredibly fast. After the 2 days of fishing, each battery charged in 2.5 hrs a piece. From what i read, lithioms can charge very fast with no side effects to the battery.
As far as source, It was off Alibaba. the link is below.
Looking back at my reciept, the total shipped to my house, which took 37 days, was $774.50. This includes 2x 60AH 12V batteries, and a 20 Amp single bank charger.
THese are the batteries installed in my boat. they are smaller than a group 24
That battery is $1,000! I know you've got to pay to play, but holy hell! Will any onboard charger work for it, given it is lithium?Get a single 24v 50ah lifepo4 battery and put your starting battery and tm battery under the console. Will get some weight out from the back and put it in the center. I’m assuming that your starting battery is in back.
I have two 100ah Battleborn batteries in the front and together weigh 62lbs. Have gone on four day trips and never ran out of power. They now make a 50ah 24v battery that weighs 31lbs and should give you more than enough juice for a long day on the troller. Ten year warranty is nice as well.
Where have you been? Lithiums have always been that high.That battery is $1,000! I know you've got to pay to play, but holy hell! Will any onboard charger work for it, given it is lithium?
I just bought my boat in October! I've never had to buy a boar battery of any type until this spring!Where have you been? Lithiums have always been that high.
Yessir, if I used one enough I’d have a 24v but I might use it 4-5 trips a year if that.I just bought my boat in October! I've never had to buy a boar battery of any type until this spring!
I'm going to end up with one anyway. I was on the fence about getting my new trolling motor in 12v or 24v. The weight and size of these batteries make it an easy choice.
Is that the same though if I go with 1x 24v Lithium as opposed to 2x 12V standard batteries?A 12v system will wear a battery down much quicker than a 24v system. If you can, go 24v for added power and run time. Just have to deal with the added cost though.
