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 forthe same thrust.

How do I know if my trolling motor battery is bad? Repeat ever couple of hours or when you notice a power drop. If one battery drops more than the others, that one is probably bad. If the batteries are being charged fully, start the day at the same voltage and discharge equally, then they are probably all wornout.

How long will a 35ah battery run a trolling motor? Lets assume my deep cycle 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
100 501.7

How long will a 24 volt trolling motor last? A typical group 27 battery will supply 25 amps of current for one hour. A typical grou 30 battery will supply 25 amps of current for about 2 hours. If you run your 24 volt trolling motot at maximum speed, you will be drawing about 25-30 amps from thebatteries.

How long will a trolling motor run on battery? 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). A battery bank of a240 Ah capacity rating selected as deep cycling should be kept to 50% to ensure maximum battery life.
