Anyone have experience using spot lock with the 24 volt minn Kota?

Ive had a 24 volt Motorguide on my champion 203 with two group 31 batteries for years now and Ive never had any issues. This allows me to carry a spare in case something happens. So Id like to stick with the same setup, Im just not sure if the spot lock feature will drain two batteries too quick with the ultrex.

I have had my 80lb, 24 volt Ultrex on my 2010 Nitro Z-7 for 18 months now and use the spot lock all the time, all day and I have never had a low battery issue.

Never had a problem. I can't tell that my Ultrex uses and more battery juice than did my Fortrex.

I have one on my ZX200 Skeeter. Some problems at first but now it does great. The more I use it the more I like it. No battery issues fishing all day.

No battery issues here. Stayed locked on spots for most of the day in 20mph winds and I still don't see any reduction in speed at the end of the day. Just a 18ft skeeter but I've worked it really hard and it doesn't slow down.

Same here. Never an issue for me.

80/24 on a ZX225 for over 2 years now with no issues. The only time I wish I had a 112 is when I am skipping spots, but the 80 has never been an issue for spot locking or fishing in general.

3 in a row including currently. All 20'+ boats. Never an issue.

My 80lb Ultrex uses less current on an average day than my Maxxum did. Its more efficient and uses only whats needed to hold steady.

Well there you have it.

I also have the 24V 80 on a 20ft Basscat loaded heavy with tackle (LOL) and it pulls the boat just fine and I have never run down the batteries.
