Minn Kota Edge is known for its compact build with extruded, anodized aluminum for reliable, rugged strength. Its solid latch and door mount and impact-resistant composite head makes it the perfect motor for smaller boats that are ready to take on long days on the water. With this in mind, it deserves a reliable power source, so it can keep up with your needs. In that case, consider getting a 24V60AH lithium battery for it!
Although Minn Kota trolling motors are specifically designed to function on lead acid batteries and flooded, AGM, or gel batteries, they can also run on lithium batteries. However, they maintain higher voltages for extended periods of time compared to lead acid, so using it with your Minn Kota Edge bow mount trolling motor for speeds beyond 85 percent for a prolonged period could result in permanent damage to the motor. So, be sure to choose the right battery and use it properly to protect your investment.
When selecting the right battery, make sure that the maximum continuous output current rating is higher than the motor’s maximum current rating. Otherwise, the battery or the motor will switch off. The Minn Kota Edge bow mount trolling motor can run safely on a liFePO4 (Lithium Iron Phosphate) 24V60AH lithium battery.
Lithium iron phosphate batteries are perfect for the Minn Kota Edge trolling motor, which is known for its cool and quiet power. With a 24V60AH lithium battery, you won’t have to worry about getting two batteries, unlike when you use lead acid to power your trolling motor. The battery’s reduced weight and size won’t take up much space in your boat and will not weigh it down. High-quality LiFePO4 batteries have a built-in battery management system to keep it safe and protected from problems like overcharging and short circuit. They also have a LED charge status indicator, so you can easily identify how much charge is left!
