I run Relion's, no issue so far, also run my 36 volt system with them, sold them with my other boat and got new ones for new boat, mine are only a couple years old. love the extra juice they give.

Maybe this is the solution to running a Verado if you like to troll.

I watched some stuff on YouTube about the (1 )36 volt battery for 36v TM. Only weighs like 30lbs. Don’t know if they make a 24v though? The guy on there had a blue box charger that charged off of the 12v starting battery while outboard was running. $2500 5 year warranty and said they probably last 10 years. Worth watching

I only run a 24v set up for trolling motor but have 4 batteries in the boat, 2 for bow mount, cranking battery & power steering/talon and one for finders/stereo/and live well-bilge.

Iíd really like to be able to go back to 3 batteries and not have to worry about being low on power and the weight savings would be a plus as well.

These are 3 Iím looking at so far, in order of likelyhood of purchase based on price and out put

You can buy an awful lot of batteries for $2500.

I have not been watching the price trend on lithium batteries. Is the price on comparable batteries flat, rising, or falling?

Iíve only just started looking into them for the boat so Iím not sure, thatís part of why I started the thread.

Mostly just curious how they are performing and what kind of run time gains guys are seeing or if theyíve been able to reduce the number of batteries they use by switching.

It has been pointed out to me by some that they are expecting a jump forward in battery technology with the upcoming 2020 Tesla roadster but I havenít really looked at that yet

JSB,
I pair of group 31 batteries weigh about 120 lbs.

Just think about the fact that you have your grand daughter sitting on a seat in the boat and enjoy the battery use.

A pair of group 31 batteries will cost you about $200.

Good luck
