48v trolling motor with 52v Shark pack?

Post by WoodlandHills » Feb 04 2018 1:24pm

Does anyone know of a 48v trolling motor that will accept input power of 58v? I have a couple of healthy 52v Sharks from my ebikes and a CLC Whitehall boat that I would like to combine with a trolling motor. They aren't cheap and I would hate to burn one up experimenting if it was already known it wouldn't work.

I don't see why it wouldn't. 48V controller will have at least 63V capacitors in it, and if it's designed for 4x 12V SLA in series that's around 58V fully charged so really very close to your shark pack at least on the high end.
