…

24 Volt Power Source.

Throttle Level | Thrust | Current |
---|---|---|

20% | 45 N-m (10 lbf) | 3 A |

30% | 70 N-m (16 lbf) | 6 A |

40% | 101 N-m (23 lbf) | 9 A |

## How many amps does a Minn Kota 40 lb thrust draw?

The Endura 40 is 42 Maximum Amp Draw that at 100% power.

## How many amps does a 45 lb thrust trolling motor pull?

40 to 45 lbs thrust is roughly 29 amps/hr instead of the 42 amps/hr that those respective motors draw for the same thrust.

## How long will a 12V battery run a trolling motor?

Almost 5 hours doesn’t seem too bad, but that is really a max runtime in ideal conditions. Reality is likely to be less. If the battery is old, damaged or not fully charged then you will not get the rated amp hours from it, reducing your runtime.

## Do I need a circuit breaker on my trolling motor?

It is highly recommended that a circuit breaker or fuse be used when installing a trolling motor. Refer to the Minn Kota “Conductor Gauge and Circuit Breaker Sizing Table”. For motors requiring a 60-amp breaker, the Minn Kota MKR-19 60-amp circuit breaker is recommended.

## What kind of battery do I need for a Minn Kota trolling motor?

A Minn Kota trolling motor will operate with any lead acid, deep cycle marine 12-volt battery/batteries. For best results, use a deep cycle, marine battery with at least a 110-ampere hour rating.

## What does MCA mean on a battery?

Marine Cranking Amps (MCA)

Batteries designed for marine use may be rated at MCA instead of CCA. The MCA rating method measures battery output at 32oF, not 0oF. A battery’s MCA rating will be one-third higher than its CCA rating would be.

## How many amps does a 80lb thrust trolling motor use?

The 80lb thrust Terrova has a max amp draw at the 10 setting of 56 amps.

## How long will a 50 amp hour battery last?

A 12 volt 50Ah lithium iron phosphate (LiFP04) battery with regular depth of discharge (DoD) of 80% will run a fully-loaded 1500 watt inverter for 13 minutes.

## How long will a 100Ah battery run a trolling motor?

How long will a 100Ah battery run a trolling motor? A 100Ah lead acid deep-cycle battery will run a 30lbs thrust trolling motor on Speed 4 for 4 hours.
