I use a 24 V 80'-ish' lb Motorguide trolling motor with a Kelly 24 V brushed controller.
As battery I use a 8S (24V) LiFePO4 70 Ah battery. But this could also be a regular series lead setup.
luvxu wrote:I recently modified the trolling motor to be PWM controlled. What's a difference in battery does that make! I am now able to extend the battery to 2-3 times compared to the original motor.
Excellent work guys!
I'm about to go down this path on a 24v trolling motor. I plan on using a 6s pack of (3) Nissan Leaf 60ah cells - but otherwise pretty similar to luvxu's setup. I was curious if either of you have measure the current draw and motor temps, either before or after the lithium conversion?
