Lithium Pros with their auto charger. Will charge as you run from spot to spot.

If you want lithium, go for it. If ya want a trouble free conventional battery, get the one Mr Latta suggested. The Lithiums are very light, but kinda expensive. The AGM is a great battery for 90% of most anglers needs.

5yr warranty and I can use my current Minn Kota Precision Charger to charge it. 30lbs each vs. 70lb Group 27 Duracell AGMs.

That = 90lbs of total batteries (24V TM & Starting) vs. 200lbs of AGMs. Big difference in the way my boat handles now with the lithiums vs. when I had the AGMs.

The lithiums can sit in a idle state for up to 3 months and not loose charge. These charge much faster and last for days. These will be able to get thousands of cycles through them which means they will most likely make it to my next boat as well.

Yes, its a huge up-front cost but with everything I stated above I felt it was worth it and Im very happy with them so far.

Saw this at a boat show, if cost isn't a problem for ya. It's two 36 volt Lithium batteries with charger for $3,500 but weighs less than 56 pounds. I politely said it was out of my league and walked away.

I have 3 Relion 50ah THEY have last me 8 hour days in wind, current on spot lock or moving side to side on a bridge... AND at the end of the day they were at 39.2 volts still, started the day at 42.6 volts.....

I am using the stealth charging system HE is the one who makes lithium pros charger so no need to over pay for that with that name on it when you can get it from the source....

My batteries were 575 each.. Thats only 100 more than the best agm battery. And the relions or any 50ah only weigh 15lb each.


This guy is selling some for 399 each... http://lithiumdeals.com/

X2 Power. Can not beat them for the price and have a great warranty. Lithium batteries are not proven well enough yet IMO. Lot's of complaints about them, and stocking issues when you do have a problem is the majority of what I hear.
