It is convenient also for me to bring up this old subject once more. I already have a Minnkota RT-80 24V iPilot bough-mounted on a 14 ft Alu-sportfishing boat, which also can have a 25 hp transom petrole outboard motor
for planning and faster cruising transport.
Any experiences with the current
Aquawatt AB13R 50 V electric motor
for this purpose?
It is said to perform 10KW (13 HP) on 48 V AGM
and 13 kW (18 HP) on 51 V Li-Ion battery
banks, both recommended to have at least 200 Ah.
The older (first) 2010 model AB10 that I still have found available less costly, was only mentioned as 10 kW (and 18 HP?) on 48 V batteries. Does anybody know if this model also could (can) perform 13 kW on 51 V Li-Ion?
Though I alreadey have 4x12 V 140 Ah AGM Solar
batteries for MinnKota, it looks that they cannot be used for Aquawatt due to its up to 300 Amps requirements at flat out, and these batteries is expected to hold not more than 5-6 minutes. Therefore a Aquawatt AB13R and custom made LifePo4
batteries solution will be a hight cost and investment .......
