Lithium Trolling Motor Batteries Are Gaining Ground With Fishermen
Make your next fishing trip the best one ever by upgrading to a lithium trolling motor battery from LBP.
There are few things more satisfying than the thrill of catching a big fish.
With Florida’s world-famous bass and tarpon fishing seasons in full swing, we know that you’re always looking for ways to get an advantage over the other anglers out there.
You’ve invested tons of money in the right equipment, you’ve meticulously planned your fishing trip, and you’ve already scheduled a time to take your boat in for a quick inspection before you hit the water.
But one thing you might be overlooking — and an upgrade that will give you the upper hand even against more experienced fishermen — are the batteries that you use to power your boat’s trolling motor.
Now is the time to make the switch to lithium trolling motor batteries.
But why are lithium fishing boat batteries so much more effective than lead-acid batteries, and what makes them especially popular among fishermen?
Keep on reading this post to find out.
Lithium Marine Batteries Won’t Weigh You Down
If you’ve been on fishing trips before, then you’re likely already all too familiar with just how much weight lead trolling motor batteries can add to your boat.
Once you’ve spotted the perfect fish or have something hooked on your line, every second and every tiny movement counts.
In most cases lithium batteries are capable of making much more pound-per-pound output than lead batteries, they don’t require nearly as many materials to create. This means that you get the benefit of a lighter battery and more power at the same time.
Many lithium batteries are even able to float, which makes for an even speedier approach. Especially if you’re competing with nearby fishermen, lithium batteries provide the advantage you need.
They’re Seriously Powerful
In addition to being lightweight, lithium ion batteries are also incredibly powerful. They hold their charge for your entire trip as they don’t lose voltage as you continue to ride.
Lithium batteries will easily manage all of your electrical loads, and can even help you to get your boat started faster. You likely won’t see any kind of drop in voltage until a lithium battery is close to 1% power.
Above all, they increase your overall trolling motor speed because they don’t require as high of a voltage level output as lead-acid trolling batteries do.
This means your speed will increase thanks to both the lighter weight of your boat and the raw power of the lithium batteries.
Sure, you might have to pay a bit more upfront for lithium trolling motor batteries for your boat.
The good news is that even with the higher upfront cost, lithium is a much more cost-effective option in the long run than traditional lead-acid batteries.
First of all, if you use them properly, LBP batteries can last you for up to ten years (yes, they are backed by our rock solid manufacturers warranty!). This means you no longer have to keep paying for frequent battery replacements like you did in the past, saving you some serious cash.
Additionally, lithium batteries are sealed, which means they don’t require much, if any, maintenance. This saves you time, money, and above all, frustration. No one likes having to put their trip on hold to perform complicated maintenance tasks on their lead-acid trolling motor battery.
They Hold Charge For Longer
You don’t want to have to cut an amazing fishing trip short because your trolling motor batteries weren’t up to snuff.
Lithium trolling motor batteries last on average 2-3 times longer than lead-acid batteries, and also feature the benefit of faster recharging.
Depending on the specific model of charger and battery that you purchase, a completely dead 36V lithium battery can be completely recharged in just under 3 hours.
In addition to being able to hold their charge for much longer than lead-acid batteries, the charging capacity of lithium batteries won’t slowly degrade over time.
Too often, lead-acid batteries never fully recharge back to 100% once they’ve been drained to under 50%, and things only get worse from there.
They’re Better for the Environment
As a fisherman, we know that you already care deeply about doing your part to protect the environment.
While lead-acid batteries might be affordable, they also have a serious environmental impact. The acid these batteries use is corrosive, they can leak acid, and they’re extremely toxic to the soil.
Why not go with a trolling motor battery that’s much more efficient, faster, and also much kinder to the environment?
Lithium batteries are made without toxic acid and lead, and they also don’t emit the harmful chemicals and gasses that lead-acid batteries do. This means that, in addition to being better for the environment, they’re also a better choice for your overall health.
