This is true. It's 100% my fault though. I just can't expect to get 12+ hours out of it.


That is why we decided on the 200ah unit.
We don't typically fish for more than 6-7 hrs, but occasionally we do.
Always better to have more than youy need than not enough.
Also, even though the lithium batteries can be drawn down low and rechagrged, not drawing them down increases the number of charges they can take over time extendintg thier life.

New way to produce lithium batteries?

A new form of carbon opens door to nanosized wires
New type of atomically thin carbon material


"This novel carbon network may also serve as a superior anode material in lithium-ion batteries, with a larger lithium storage capacity compared to that of the current graphene-based materials."

Sodium will replace lithium in the future. Most of the current research is driven by the automotive and energy industries. Fossil fuels need to go away for our planet to survive.

One thing for sure they will go away one way or another. There is a finite supply.

Glad to hear it!  Did you source parts from Minnkota directly?

It was "fairly" cheap... Since I was worried I wouldn't get the parts in short order I basically bought every gear in the steering module which cost about $35. And yes the steering housing was tricky to get back together. Everything fits in there "just so".

I did, yes, and it's good to know that Minn Kota ships parts pretty quick. I think I had them in less than a week.

The good news (if there is any) is you seem to know how to fix that unit well.  That alone is worth it's weight in gold.
