What kind of battery and charger will you need?
We suggest the use of a 12 volt deep-cycle marine battery
and a 10 amp automatic charger. Marine batteries typically
come in series sizes 24, 27, and 30. We suggest a series 27
size battery. The bigger the battery, the longer the run-time.
Avoid marine starting batteries. A general purpose trolling
motor battery will work fine. Sealed or maintenance-free
batteries are a good idea so you don't have to check liquid levels.
Your charger should be able to handle 10 amps or better. Most automatic chargers have different settings for 3 amp, 6 amp or 10-15 amps. For full overnight charging, you should use a 10 amp setting.
