Why are you wanting to add batteries? If it is to prolong usage of your trolling motor then hook up another battery to the existing one in parallel. If possible use one the same size and age as the existing one.

if you have a 12v trollin motor, then use the parallel method with two 12v batts...this will give you plenty of amp hours needed for all day battery use.

Can you charge two batteries the same way?

Some say yes, some say not to. I would charge seperatly, jmo. I use 1 big deep cycle trolling battery and never run out of power.

Yes but keep in mind that if one goes bad it affects the other so neither get charged properly..
