    I am looking for ideas on lightweight batteries to run trolling motor on my kayak. Donít want to break the bank. Any thoughts?

    I have read a little about some lithium ion batteries. They tend to be fairly expensive

    I was going to suggest that but they are expensive. Dakota lithium brand I have seen several guys use in kayaks.

    I looked into them for the boat. The weight savings to me don't justify the cost for the boat. For a kayak depending on the type of fishing you do they could have a lot of benefit

    If I remember correctly the one site said they last about 10x longer than normal batteries so cheaper in long run once that’s figured???

    I believe they require a different charger as well

    Donít over think it.
    I have a 2 person fiberglass pirogue that is probably 150 lbs empty. I have a small Walmart 12 volt Car battery, I think 425 CCA
    It will power the 40 lb minkota
    Easy 6-7 miles or most of a regular day fishing.
    I think it was about $60
