It’s definitely getting more in my price range! I was looking at them at the classic expo. With the life span twice as long as lead acid and the weight and room of only needing one for trolling motor. Even if I stay with the AGM for my outboard it would be still worth it. When my battery’s die I’ll be going that way!

Thinking of doing the same but I need to check and see if my onboard minnkota system handles AGM or lithium first! You might want to make sure your charger or onboard systems can handle them first.

I know the one I want would require a new charger. The 24v and the 36v single case battery’s would need a charger of that voltage. I use a 24v trolling motor. I’m not sure about the 12v ones, if they require a special charger or not. Definitely a good point though! More money! Lol

If you can’t afford lithium go with group 31 AGM
I have 3 Interstates for my TM and they are 😌

I bought two of these Lithium batteries for my new boat’s trolling motor. They cost basically 2X what a good AGM would cost but will last 5X or more as long and give MUCH superior service with their ability to deliver much more capacity. Took about a week to get them.

Do these have a 5 year warranty?
