Deep cycle battery

Recommended Posts

Well i just bought a new deep cycle Yesterday because my old 4 yr batt didnt hold a charge. just bought a Trojan Deep Cycle Battery SCS225 rated at 130 Ah at 12 VDC.

Spent way more than a wanted to, about a hundred more. Question is will i see more improvements over my old one? Or did i just throw away money? Also will be useing it on new traxxis 55# maximixer transom trolling motor, i looked and looked but, couldnt find how much power that moter draws ?

I read that a trolling motor uses about 1-1.2 Ah / lb thrust genarated. So if you ran the trolling motor wide open continuosly you could expect about 2 hours of use before it starts draining fast.

I've had my Trojan for a number of years so far. Life expectancy has a lot to do with care. Keep the electrlyte level up, used distilled water when adding, maintain charge at all times, don't deep cycle it too much between charges (drain it down too far), recharge as soon as possible after use, don't overheat it, and protect it from excessive vibration.

This will be the 5th season on my deep-cycle Trojan batteries. Can't say enough good about them. I do take really good care of them and keep them at full charge after each time out on the water. I really use them alot and they continue to take a great charge keeping me good to go all day long.

    • Thanks MJ   It's nice for the picture and follow up video you catch a lot that gets missed after the picture.
    • i was just there on the 11th of Aug, yea i was way less then impressed with the cave. wont bother me none, but then again that wasthe first time in 5 years i've been in a cabelas.
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home.
