    That should work great.

    I run a lithium pro 12v and 36v. I have never killed either. I fish pretty much only tournaments, pre fished dark to dark often. Also for ppl worried about in the cold, I have run them to about -10 deg C with no issues.

    Any body aware of a bass boat with lithium batteries that have caught on fire due to the batteries? Make sure we are talking batteries not an improper charger.

    I am not.....Chris Lane comes to mind but I believe that was found to be a faulty charger.

    Can anyone confirm whether these are LTO (Lithium Titanate)? This is a type of Lithium Ion that has never been found to cause a fire. Its the same technology that are used in several of the new hybrid and electric vehicles.

    I don't think they are LTO...I think they are LFP but I'd contact Lithium Pros to be sure.

    Lithium Iorn Phosphate is what it says in their FAQ section. AKA LFP

    Here is a cheap charger Battleborn suggested to use for the 24 volt 50ah battery. I called them today and talked to them about it.

    My boat goes fishing pretty every week. Doesn't matter how cold or hot, or if the wind is blowing. My nephew works a real job, loves to fish, so we go on his day or days off each week.
    I bought my 24 volt Lithium Pros in January of 2015 because the 24 volt Terrova electric trolling found Optima batteries, also Lead Acid (worked better than Optima) to not be enough... On the Columbia River, in wind and current, I have never found the end of my 24 volt Lithium Pros.
    The weight reduction improved the boat performance. Instead of having two 40 to 60 pound batteries back there, I have one 30 pound battery. I have ended up with it, in the back, behind my drivers seat.
    Most folks that go fishing with me weigh more than I do by as much or a lot more than 30 pounds.

    I’ve been lingering around this thread since it started and this has been very educational. I am thinking about buying a mud boat to fish the local lakes and rivers in my area so weight is one of my top priorities when it comes to batteries. I plan on putting an 80# Ultrex trolling motor and using the spotlock feature in the river to keep me from drifting. I am really thinking about going the Lithium Pro route but I have a question. I’ve never run any fancy big screen fishfinders or electronics on my current boat so I wanted to know what the average amp draw is? I'm also thinking about putting a stereo in the boat as well with some decent speakers so I wanted to get everyone’s input on what capacity batteries I should get. I think the max time we would be out for the day would be 8-10 hours max. Thanks for all of the useful information so far!!!
