Lithium Pros Presents the Best Battery Option for Bass Boats

Knoxville, TN – Weighing just one-fifth the weight of a typical bass boat battery system, the M3265-36 38.4V 65Ah Lithium Ion Trolling Battery from Lithium Pros allows anglers to dramatically reduce the weight of their vessels for speed and fuel efficiency, and the versatility to fish shallow areas.

The BCI Group GC12 sized battery weighs 39.2 lbs yet provides as much trolling power as three 76-lb Group 31 220RC traditional batteries. Its 152 reserve minutes is enough for a full day of use with a typical trolling motor. Using an optional onboard DC charger extends the battery’s capabilities even further by generating power from the outboard engine’s charging system.

Trolling motors are indispensable for navigating fishing waters and holding position in the current without the noise and disruption of an outboard engine. Lithium-ion batteries are ideal deep-cycle power sources for trolling motors. Smaller and lighter than traditional lead acid batteries, Lithium-ion batteries charge faster, run longer on a charge, and typically last as long as ten years, while lead acid batteries usually last around three years.

With a capacity of 65 amp hours or 2,496 watt-hours, the M3265-36 battery provides a total of 152 minutes of reserve power, sufficient for a full day’s fishing in one location, assuming a Minn Kota motor at 50% power and duty cycle (usage); higher settings, wind or current could affect this estimate. At 12.9 x 10.5 x 7.1”, the M3265-36 occupies the same footprint as a Group 31 battery but is 1.5” taller. It fits in most marine battery trays.

Competition and recreational anglers know that a lighter craft means increased access to the best water and more fish brought to the boat. The M3265-36 Lithium Ion Trolling Battery meets the need, saving weight, space, and long-term cost through modern battery technology.
