Default Re: How to take out a elect motor

when I've had to buy batteries, I have purchased golf cart batteries. It's expensive, but well worth it for the quality and performance. I have occasionally used regular 12v automotive batteries just to TEST things, but would not want to run them full time, and trolling batteries don't have the amp hour capacity that a golf cart battery will. Trolling motors are low voltage, low amperage, carts are high/er voltage and require fairly high amperage.

I'm sure others will chime in, and say this - You get what you pay for. If you buy cheap batteries, you'll get cheap performance, and shortened lifespan. You'll likely end up buying batteries FREQUENTLY, costing you more in the long run, whereas if you just buy a quality golf cart battery and maintain them properly you could get 5 years (or more) out of them. It is not totally unheard of to get 10 years of service out of a good set of batteries with proper maintenance.

I too am always trying to save a buck, but batteries aren't really a good place to try and save it seems. If you were just trying to set up the cart to sell it, you might consider doing things on the cheap, so you basically can just SHOW the cart to a potential buyer, and then let them worry about the upkeep later, but don't mislead them about the batteries either. :)
