Hi There,
What thrust do you have on electric motor?
Do you have maximizer or not?
How long will last you 20Amp/h batery?
Regards,

30  lbs thrust MinnKota, EM kit which equals Maximizer, 20 Ah at full speed gives me about 4-5 hrs. I'm also running
my sonar off the same battery. What I like about my purchase is I get 2 1/2 times the Ah for only 4.75 lbs difference... 8) It's win-win.

Check out the weight and power of these batteries:
BALLISTIC PERFORMANCE LITHIUM EVO2 12V
Look on ebay or Amazon.

Yep, I just looked at the 12 cell batt. It's only 20 Ah for $189.95 before tx & shp.  ??? No thank you

Sealed 12V Batteries...

When I bought my BassYak T14 it came with a couple of sealed batteries; one was done for but the other was in great shape, still is, but it's only 20 Ah. Last year I had a few big days on the water when I had to paddle back
 ( shame on me  :-X) so as not to jeopardize battery life. So this year I decided to upgrade. But I was checking all the specs, length, width, height and weight.

     My 20 Ah bat. weighs in at 25 lbs and I found, at Battery Expert a 50 Ah batt. that weighs only 29.75 lbs  :o I couldn't believe my eyes when
the guy put the batt. on the scale. And the price wasn't so bad at $159.95.
I don't know if you have them in Ontario... ::)
      I won't be bothered with batt. charge this season  8)
