How long will a trolling motor run on a battery?

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.
