No solar
48v bank (8xGC2) same set since 2008
DualPRo Quad bank Professional Series charger
Very clean, no smell & very minimal noise
On weight it was basically a trade off for me, batteries in tray where old engine was, boat balanced the same.
How much power do you use (in AH) going out and what amperage with prop regeneration do you achieve? How do you measure this?
