Wondered who has been using them with long term good luck? So far, both buddies that have used them have had them fail.

Anyone been using the same set for over a year with multiple uses per week with good luck?

I’ve been using 3 50ah Ionics for about four months, couple times a week. I can fish 8 hours and maybe be at 80% even if it’s pretty breezy out. The Bluetooth app is really nice, gives you all the pertinent information about each battery.

RELION LITHIUM, been running about two years, no problems at all. I fish 4-6 times a week, trolling batteries will last about 5 days normal conditions. I have run them out twice, hooked them up separately to 50 amp charger to wake them up. Holding on windy points, lots of use in windy conditions, etc., about 3 days. The trollers are 100's.

Fire is what scares me about them. I pulled over to help a guy on a motorcycle that had a lithium battery on fire. I dumped a 30 lb fire extinguisher on it and never did get it put out.

I ran the Lithium Battery Power (LBP) 36 V battery for trolling and the Power Pole Charge this year with no problems. This reduced my overall battery weight by over 200 pounds and increased my speed almost 5 mph. I am a tournament fisherman and never had any issues with power. The Charge keeps all my batteries charged throughout the day and only need 10 minutes of full charge at the end of the day to charge both batteries (crank and trolling).
ALL LBP Batteries include a 10 Year Manufacturers Defect Warranty from the date of purchase. 5 Years FREE replacement and 5 years prorated.

0-5 years Free Replacement

5-7 years 25% off retail price

7-9 years 18% off retail price

9-10 years 10% off retail price

I've run ReLion for over a year now and love them. I've never had any issues and I have power for days.

I run the RB100-HP for cranking, power, and electronics and two RB-100's for trolling (24v system/Lowrance Ghost). Now I bought the two RB-100 (Group 31) batteries before I had the option with the Ghost to run 36v so I'm considering adding 1 more in the future.

Some companies have a 36v/50 or 60 amp hour single battery option and that should give you plenty of capacity to run all day. I've run for 2 or 3 days without charging before on my 24v 100 amp hour batteries with no problems.

There are plenty of manufactures out now and that offer plenty of configurations so find what works best for you but I've been very happy with the ReLion's and there sales, customer service, and technical service have been great.

I have about 6months into 4 100ah dakota lithiums in a golf cart. Happy so far but the customer service response time is lacking. Time for new batteries in the boat in a year or so and might explore other options when it come to the boat. 11 year warranty is hard to pass up in that consideration though.
