Trolling is a highly rewarding recreational activity that, for many fishers, is the best way to pursue their favorite hobby. But to get the most out of your trolling expeditions, you need the right equipment—and one component whose importance should never be underestimated is the motor.
It goes without saying that the right motor is vastly important for trolling aficionados. For many trollers, the ideal choice is an electric motor, which offers the benefits of quiet operation, easy control (via hand-held remote control or foot pedals), and precise maneuvering. In order to ensure an optimal trolling experience out on the water, you need to bring along a suitable battery to charge the motor, as well as various other onboard components such as the GPS system, the fish finder, the live well, and the stereo. So, what battery should you choose to keep all this gear running smoothly?
For the Enduro Power team, the choice is simple: The 36V Lithium ProConnect Battery provides the overall best option for the serious troller in need of a trustworthy deep cycle power source.
Anglers certainly have plenty of choices available to them when it comes to finding a battery. Lead acid batteries are a traditional, affordable option that remains well within reach for most anglers. The absorbent glass mat battery (AGM) is a relatively recent type of device that can be found on many boats. Gel batteries offer another option for anglers who prefer a low-maintenance power source with deep cycle capabilities.
Yet none of these options can compete with high-quality bass boat lithium batteries. Although lithium batteries are never the least expensive options on the market, these devices offer a number of advantages that effectively pay themselves off in the long run. The benefits of lithium batteries include:
Lightweight construction - Excess weight on a trolling boat can have a negative impact on the vessel’s maneuverability and fuel efficiency. Because lithium has a low atomic weight and can store more energy in a finite amount of space, these types of batteries are significantly lighter than lead acid batteries and other alternatives—which makes for a better boating experience.
Long run times - The high energy density of lithium and its ability to transmit energy in an efficient manner also enables these batteries to run longer before requiring recharge.
Longevity - Lithium batteries can last for years if properly used and cared for—their lifespan can rack up ten times as many cycles as lead acid batteries. As a result, they don’t need to be replaced nearly as often as alternative batteries. This effectively lowers the overall cost of ownership associated with lithium batteries compared with other options.
The ProConnect 36V 50Ah lithium LiFePO4 deep cycle battery from Enduro Power delivers all the customary benefits of lithium batteries and more. It goes beyond standard lithium batteries to provide anglers with the most versatile, reliable trolling boat battery available today.
The 36V Lithium ProConnect Battery takes full advantage of Enduro’s LiFePO4 (Lithium Iron Phosphate) technology to provide the dedicated angler with a truly dependable power source. Utilizing "Grade A" aluminum-cased prismatic cells, our LiFePO4 batteries build on the already impressive capabilities of standard lithium-ion batteries by offering even greater energy density and a longer cycle life. Anglers can easily get more than 3000 cycles out of these powerful lithium batteries for trolling motors.
With a rated capacity of 38.4V / 50Ah / 1920Wh, the 36V Lithium ProConnect Battery comes with a higher nominal voltage than any other battery in the Enduro Power product line. And at a weight of only 34.15 lbs., the battery is light enough to be transported around easily, and will not be a burden on your boat’s operating capabilities. It has been engineered to work correctly regardless of its positional orientation while in use.
Furthermore, the 36V Lithium ProConnect Battery includes a variety of additional features that have been carefully designed by the Enduro Power team:
This powerful deep cycle trolling motor lithium battery has been engineered in compliance with several major internationally recognized quality standards. These include UN 38.3, which comprises various tests to ensure the safety of lithium-ion batteries during transportation; and IEC 62619, which sets strict guidelines for secondary lithium batteries used in stationary applications.
Like the rest of Enduro Power’s ProConnect series, the 36V Lithium Battery comes with a BMS that protects the device against various operational hazards, including:
The BMS can be easily managed via Bluetooth app (iOS or Android). The app provides a visual overview of the current performance of every battery in the system.
Charging a battery in cold temperatures can result in poor performance; it may even trigger thermal runaway, which could cause the device to catch fire. For that reason, the 36V Lithium ProConnect Battery is designed to prevent charging in temperatures below 32°F.
Storing a battery properly when not in use is one of the keys to its long-term health. The 36V Lithium ProConnect Battery can be safely left in a wide range of conditions. It can be stored in its normal operating temperature range (-4°F to 130°F) for up to three months. For longer storage—up to a year—it can be kept in temperatures ranging from 32°F to 95°F. The battery will lose only about 3% of its capacity while stored away.
When all its features are considered, the 36V Lithium ProConnect Battery is the perfect choice for a large trolling boat with a high-powered thrust motor. You can even link several of them together to form a powerful yet still reasonably lightweight battery bank. These world-class batteries also come with Enduro Power's 10-year warranty that covers manufacturer defects.
