this may seem strange but ,I need the lightest in weight I can find to run a troll motor, i am aware weight and battery hrs go together.
the reason is I have to carry the battery to the water and have health issues, so it needs to be as light as possible ,but still propel me around 3 or 4 hrs
thanks

Hopalong, the lightest option is lithium. The weigh about 10 to 12 pounds. Pricy but worth it in your case.

The reasonable answer is called "hand truck" (~$30 + normal deep cycle battery). Or, you can pay $1000 for that Li-Ion battery. Those have particular charging requirements, so forget the $30 charger also, btw.

Say WHAT????????? Do you buy them, use them until they are dead as a door nail (which won't be long), then buy new ones?

After reading this, I am going to start treating my batteries better and take better care of them.

I promise

I have a 12 Volt trolling motor, my trolling motor battery is only lasting about half the Time it did when New. So I need to replace it - but would I see any benefit in wiring the New battery in parallel with the older battery or should I just replace it and turn in the old battery.? hmmm

Don't do it. The old battery will pull down your new one in short order and you'll be stuck with two bad batteries.

Yes, if you are going to rig 2 twelve volt batteries in parallel, they should be identical in age and capacity. If you are going to replace one, replace them both.
