How long can I expect my trolling motor to run for?
If you take your battery amp hours and divide it by the amps drwan (listed on your trolling motor) you can do the math. For example if you have a 100 amp hour battery on your trolling motor and no other electronics hooked up and your trolling motor pulls 20 amps, you can expect 5 hours of run time. Definitely give yourself a cushion though as different conditions may cause more or less amps to be drawn .
@StevieRyder Generally on a good battery you will see anywhere between 6-10 hours of use a day with a trolling motor before the battery dies. That depends on if youre running it at full speed or not and how much.
