Best Lithium Trolling Motor Batteries

When compared with wet/flooded, AGM, and Gel-Cell lead-acid trolling motor batteries, lithium trolling motor batteries offer many benefits, including a much larger number of charging/discharging cycles, low self-discharge rate, ultralight design, no capacity loss due to the large discharge current, BMS battery protection, etc.

On the other hand, lithium deep cycle batteries also have few cons when compared with lead-acid batteries, for example, higher initial price and similar. But, in the long run, lithium trolling motor batteries save time, money, effort and are becoming more and more popular for both smaller boats and kayaks and for larger vessels.

Intro to Electric Trolling Motors

Electric trolling motors are used on kayaks, inflatable boats, smaller boats, and pontoons, but also on larger vessels as well.

They can be used as the main propulsion system, or as very quiet motors during fishing.

The main features and specifications of the electric trolling motors include:

- thrust of the electric trolling motors is given in pounds (or kilograms) although it is not entirely accurate to describe force using mass units. But, as an approximation, it is more than OK! :)

- maximum current: in order to keep the cables at acceptable size/thickness, electric trolling motors feature a maximum current of up to 50-60 Amps, with the recommended fuses of 60-70 Amps being mandatory!

- voltage: most electric trolling motors with the thrust up to ~60 pounds are powered by 12V batteries (or battery packs), up to ~90 pounds of thrust with 24V batteries, up to ~160 pounds of thrust with 36V batteries, and above the 160 pounds of thrust mostly with 48V+ batteries.

- battery monitor: some electric trolling motors feature battery monitors, allowing the users to check the remaining battery charge. The problem with battery monitors on the electric trolling motors is the fact that these battery monitors are intended for lead-acid batteries and NOT for lithium batteries and may mislead the user. If You are using an electric trolling motor with the built-in battery monitor for lead-acid batteries, and You are using a lithium battery, be sure to check the remaining lithium battery charge with the lithium battery monitor.

Note: other trolling motors features and specifications, like shaft length and similar, are not of importance for this article and will not be discussed.

As one can see, electric trolling motors vary in size and thrust significantly, from 15-18lbs of thrust small kayak trolling motors to 160-180lbs of thrust large units suitable even for larger boats. 

It is important to note that the electric trolling motors are not used at the maximum thrust all the time - most units feature 8 speeds (5 forward, 3 reverse).

If the trolling motor is used at full, or almost full thrust all the time, that electric trolling motor is seriously underpowered with practically no reserve power for emergencies (bad weather, for example).

So, if You are looking for a good trolling motor, check the chart and choose according to your own needs and requirements, just be sure to go with the model with enough power/thrust. 


Lithium vs Lead-Acid Deep Cycle Batteries

ampere time 12v 300ah w300p

When compared with lead-acid batteries, lithium batteries feature several pros and cons, including:

- for the same nominal (20h) capacity, lithium batteries are 2-4 times lighter than lead-acid batteries.

- lithium batteries don't feature as strong capacity drop as lead-acid batteries when discharged with strong currents (0.8-1.0C), making them actually 3-5 times lighter than lead-acid batteries.

- since lithium batteries are not as safe as lead-acid batteries, lithium trolling motor batteries are made using Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) chemistry combined with the built-in Battery Management System (BMS) that protects the battery from unwanted events like high and low voltage, overcurrent protection, short circuit protection, high- and low-temperature protection and similar. Most lithium batteries have a relatively limited constant charge (usually around 0.5C), discharge (usually around 1.0C), and maximum pulse discharge (usually around 2.0C) currents, while lead-acid batteries don't have such limits set electronically in order to protect the battery.

- lithium batteries are true non-spill batteries and may be mounted in any position. Sealed lead-acid batteries (AGM, Gel-Cell) can be mounted in almost any position, except upside-down. Also, lithium batteries are true non-maintenance batteries.

- lead-acid batteries support 180-250 charging/discharging cycles down to 100% DoD (Depth of Discharge), 250-400 charging/discharging cycles down to 80% DoD and 400-900 charging/discharging cycles down to 50% DoD. On the other hand, lithium batteries support 2000+ charging/discharging cycles down to 100% DoD, 3000-4000 charging/discharging cycles down to 80%, etc.

- initially, lithium batteries cost more than lead-acid batteries of the same capacity, but considering the number of charging/discharging cycles, lithium batteries are much cheaper in the long run.

- lead-acid batteries are much easier to connect in series and parallel in order to create a battery pack with higher voltage and/or larger capacity. Lithium batteries are very sensitive to such conditions and they can be connected in series and/or parallel if, and only if allowed by their manufacturer - even then, they should be connected as suggested by the manufacturer.

But, lithium batteries that are allowed to be used in parallel/series connections in order to provide larger battery packs, when connected as recommended are very safe batteries used not only as trolling motor batteries but also as RV house batteries, backup batteries, off-the-grid batteries, electric vehicles batteries, etc.

- lead-acid batteries feature a higher self-discharge rate when compared with lithium batteries. Also, lead-acid batteries should be periodically recharged, especially when their charge drops below 80% of its nominal charge - storing them with a remaining charge below 80% can shorten their operating lifetime. On the other hand, lithium batteries don't have such storage issues - after longer storage, just recharge them using a dedicated lithium battery charger.

Note: don't store lithium batteries in the hot and humid areas - just like lead-acid batteries, lithium batteries prefer colder storage areas. But, just in case, before storage, be sure to read the battery's Owner's Guide and check the manufacturer's recommendations.

- lead-acid batteries can be recharged using various charging systems. On the other hand, lithium batteries tend to be sensitive to charging conditions. Lithium batteries MUST be recharged using battery chargers or charge controllers that are either dedicated lithium battery chargers/charge controllers or feature dedicated lithium battery charging mode(s).

Lithium batteries are generally charged using the Constant Current/Constant Voltage (CC/CV) charging algorithm, although there are other, very similar charging algorithms in use as well.

For short: Lithium batteries offer many benefits over lead-acid batteries and if the initial price is not of an issue, consider lithium batteries as your next lithium trolling motor battery or battery pack.  


12V Lithium Trolling Motor Batteries

12V lithium trolling motor batteries are Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries with 4 (four) 3.2V cells internally connected in series in order to provide the required 12.8V.

12V lithium batteries feature an actual voltage of 12.8 volts and hold it very constant during the discharge, with most models having a voltage of 12V or higher during 90-95% of their discharge cycle.

If You are looking for the 12V lithium batteries for creating larger battery packs and/or battery packs with higher voltages, check the Parallel Conn./Series Conn. column. And when creating such battery packs, be sure to connect the batteries are recommended by their manufacturer!

Or in order to keep the number of connections to the minimum, check the 24V, 36V, or 48V lithium trolling motor batteries.  


24V Lithium Trolling Motor Batteries

24V lithium trolling motor batteries are Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries with 8 (eight) 3.2V cells internally connected in series in order to provide the required 25.6V.

When looking for 24V lithium batteries, users can create such battery pack by connecting in series two 12V lithium batteries that support such connections, or they can simply go for a single, 24V lithium battery and keep the number of connections to the minimum.

24V lithium trolling motor batteries are commonly used for 80-86 pounds electric trolling motors (800-1200W) which are large and strong enough even for medium size boats - even some larger fishing kayaks can benefit from such powerful motors, especially in the case of bad weather or similar emergencies.  


36V Lithium Trolling Motor Batteries

36V lithium trolling motor batteries are Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries with 12 (twelve) 3.2V cells internally connected in series in order to provide the required 38.4V.

36V lithium battery packs can be created by connecting 3 (three) 12V lithium batteries in series - or the user can simply take one 36V lithium battery and enjoy all the benefits of such simple solution.

And if larger 36V lithium battery packs are required, there are models that allow the user to connected them in parallel - again, just be sure to connect them as recommended by their manufacturer.

36V lithium batteries are intended for trolling motors in the 100-160 pounds of thrust range (1800-2800W), which is some serious power.  


48V Lithium Trolling Motor Batteries

48V lithium trolling motor batteries are Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries with 16 (sixteen) 3.2V cells internally connected in series in order to provide the required 51.2V.

48V lithium battery packs can be formed using 4 (four) 12V lithium batteries connected in series or 2 (two) 24V lithium batteries connected in series.

Or, in order to keep things as simple as possible, the user can go for 48V lithium batteries. And if battery packs with larger capacity are required, users can connect several 48V batteries in parallel (if supported!) in order to increase their capacity.

48V lithium batteries are intended for 160-180 or even stronger electric trolling motors.  


Few Final Words

ampere time 48v 100ah w300pxWith the increase in power, and in order to keep the currents at acceptable levels, even higher voltages are possible and are even in use (56V, 64V, 72V, etc.), but 12V, 24V, 36V, and 48V lithium batteries are still by far the most popular lithium trolling batteries on the market.

With so many advantages over lead-acid batteries, lithium deep cycle batteries are becoming more and more common, not only for electric trolling motors but for many other applications where their lightweight design and a large number of charging/discharging cycles are preferred features.

However, if You are looking for a cheap battery that will be used only periodically and down to no more than 80% DoD, a good AGM battery is perhaps still a better choice than a lithium battery of a similar capacity and voltage.
