If you have a Stealth charger rip it out and replace it with one one of the ones listed. Lithium doesn't like to be charged in series like the stealth does.
Relion Lithium batteries Trolling motor 24V setup (2) 75 or 80 ah for 36v setup (3) 50ah and for starting a 80ah or a 100 ah which I recommend.
Powermania Turbo M430V2 or M440V2
Pro Manier Elite series chargers
Odysseus batts and Stealth charger. Flawless performance.
Others have moved to Deka AGM batts and Powermania charger.
This place has good price and ships for free.
Lithium is expensive.
Per our discussion, and cost/value, I am going to be using 2 12v 100ah batteries for the trolling motor (RB100) and 1 12v 100h High Performance (RB100-HP).
Additionally, they work with Pro Charging Systems for their chargers - by doing so they will program the charger with the Relion charging parameters.
All installed. Everything works great. Love the batteries and the charger.
I would charge them up if you didn't already before using them. Then charge them overnight after each use and unplug next morning no need to keep them on charge they won't discharge like AGM or lead acid.
As far a Powermania I did have two failures and went with the pro mariner elite charger which was flawless. If I had a choice I would of put the Pro Mariner Elite in.
I measured the batteries after giving them a full charge and they were 13.5 for the house battery, and 13.67 and 13.71 for the trolling batteries. Is that a problem?
As always, thanks.
Let them charge use them and them a few times. They will read high once you take them right off the charger. Let them settle overnight then measure.
The warning light came on during use on the water. I did not have the Simrad on during charging and consequently did not see any warning during that time.
I will I’ll get the boat out on the water later this week and see if it comes on again.
As always, thanks
