Hi guys just upgrading to a 24V 80lb Minn Kota Ipilot.

Question is what is everybody using of late?

I'm not interested in the Lithionic batteries.

Cheers

Nick

Nick I just use sealed lead acid units.

Have been using them since I first got an electric and have never had issues since.

I think I am running 120ah or 140ah Amptechs on my 24v tour

Cheers

Thanks guys I ended up going with a pair of 105amp/hr FullRiver AGMs no maintenance sealed. Meant to be the ducks guts according to the guy I bought them off and the bit of research I did.

Not cheap though but near bullet proof, $320 each.

Cheers

There is no mention what sort of boat you have so this may or may not be of interest. The set up (24V) is good , both for balance & there is a seat fixed to the lid so , in essence the batteries do not consume too much space.
