Pontoon boats significantly differ in size, weight, hydrodynamic form, surface, and other features and it is impossible to define 'the best' electric trolling motor to fit them all.
But, if You are looking for a new electric trolling motor or even motors for your pontoon boat, here we explain a few very important things to consider before buying a new motor(s) and suitable batteries.
YTX12-BS battery is a BCI Group of starting/cranking batteries intended for motorcycles, snowmobiles, ATV, scooters, boats, power generators, tractors, and other vehicles, vessels, and applications where small and compact, but relatively strong battery is required to provide bursts of energy, required for starting/cranking smaller gas and even diesel engines.
Most modern YTX12-BS batteries are manufactured as spill-proof, maintenance-free AGM/Gel-Cell lead-acid batteries, but with the advancements in technology, lithium-ion batteries are becoming more and more popular - they tend to cost more, but can save some weight, leading to overall improvements in performances.
LR626 and SR626SW batteries are button/coin cell batteries often used in wrist watches, toys, digital cameras, remote controls, car keys, thermometers, and similar.
LR626 and SR626SW batteries share the same physical dimensions, but they differ in chemistry and thus in their features and specifications. To help with the confusion even more, some manufacturers often use other labels for both batteries, including LR66, SR66, AG4, GA4, SG4, 376, 377, etc.
The Ionic IC-12V12-EP4S battery is a 12V 12Ah deep cycle, general-purpose, Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery. It features an advanced Battery Management System (BMS) that allows the battery to be connected in parallel (larger capacity) and up to four batteries in series (for 12, 24, 36, and 48 volts systems).
Ionic IC-12V12-EP4S is much lighter than lead-acid batteries of similar capacity, it supports a much larger number of charging and discharging cycles, but it is also more expensive, at least in the beginning.
With so many devices in cars or on boats and yachts requiring both 5V or 12V DC and 120V or 230V AC, many people wonder, are car or boat/yacht batteries AC or DC power sources.
After all, a single battery provides the power for both AC and DC devices, right? As usual in life, 'complicated' issues very often have rather simple answers ...
