What is an electric outboard motor battery?

Electric Outboard Motor Battery is a battery pack that provides a power source for kayaks, small boats, and fishing boats. The battery is used to provide energy for the string outboard to ensure sufficient power source in the ocean, lake, and river. keheng as an Electric Outboard Motor Battery manufacturer not only provides lithium battery packs for Electric Outboard motors but also provides customized battery packs for fish finders and trolling motors.

What types of string outboards are there?

Gasoline Outboards

Gasoline outboards use diesel or gasoline as fuel and can have an impact on the waters.

Electric Propulsion

Marine Outboard

Electric boat propellers usually use batteries, while most people are still using lead-acid batteries as a power source, which is inconvenient to use due to their heavier weight. So lithium batteries have obvious advantages in the field of string outboards, she is not only lightweight, small in size, and high energy density the perfect choice for limited space.

What voltage battery pack should I choose for my thruster?

Usually, manufacturers will use the 12-24V battery as the standard voltage of the thruster, when choosing the matching battery, you need to consider not only the voltage but also the capacity, waterproof, BMS, and other features so that you can protect the battery will not make the battery life reduced due to external or internal factors.

Benefits of lithium batteries for outboards
  1. Save space
    We all know that the space on an inflatable boat is very small, and it takes a lot of space to use lead-acid batteries. As lithium batteries have the characteristics of small size, the use of lithium batteries for marine outboard propulsion can save space.
  2. Increase speed
    Suitable for marine outboards using lead-acid batteries, the capacity is not less than 60 amps, weighing up to 30 kilograms. And lithium batteries 60 amp only 6-7 kilograms or so, greatly reducing the carrying capacity of the boat, the speed is naturally accelerated.
  3. long life
    Lead-acid batteries can be charged and discharged cycle life of 150 times -300 times and generally can be used for 1-2 years, while the lithium battery charging and discharging cycle life of up to 2000 times, can be used for more than 5 years.
  4. High power
    Lithium batteries have a high power tolerance, in which the lithium iron phosphate lithium-ion batteries for electric outboards can reach 15-30C charge and discharge capacity, to facilitate high-intensity startup acceleration.
  5. Wide temperature range
    Lithium batteries are highly adaptable to high and low temperatures and can be used in a -20℃ -60℃ environment, and can be used in a -45℃ environment after the process.
  6. High energy density
    Lithium battery energy ratio is high, with high storage energy density, has reached 460-600Wh/kg, and is about 6-7 times of lead-acid batteries.
Propulsion lithium battery series connection recommendation

Are you considering, in the end, the use of the ternary lithium 6 series (6 ternary lithium battery cell series for 18-25.6V lithium battery pack) or ternary lithium 7 series (7 ternary lithium battery cell for 21-29.4V lithium battery pack)?

  1. The higher the voltage, the faster the speed (it is recommended that in the water current turbulence, the main propulsion to use, the distance is recommended to choose the 7 series of lithium battery cell).
  2. The efficiency of the power use (according to the minimum). Use voltage to determine the use of the lithium battery pack, if 12V-24V can be used for propulsion, then you can choose 6 strings of lithium battery pack, if the minimum voltage of 22V propulsion then you need to choose not less than 22V voltage lithium battery pack).
  3. Consider the weight and size, using more cells, the size and weight will increase.
  4. Cost, the more the cost of the battery cell is higher. So it is recommended to choose the corresponding lithium battery pack according to your needs first.
Which batteries are suitable and unsuitable for string machines?


  • Gel batteries
  • Absorbent Glass Matte (AGM)
  • Lead-acid batteries
  • Hydrogen batteries
  • Lithium-ion batteries


  • Nickel-cadmium batteries cannot be used for long periods due to their short lifespan.
  • Sodium batteries (still in the R&D stage, less viable in commerce)
  • Liquid flow batteries are not suitable for use in string outboards or high power equipment due to their low efficiency.
How to configure the power propulsion system with the size of the boat?
  • For dinghies under 5 meters, inflatable boats, and small sailboats under 7 meters, are generally suitable for outboards with 1 kW thrust.
  • 6 to 9 meters Roadster, fishing boats, small cleaning boats, small sightseeing boats, etc., suitable for 3 to 6 kW thrust outboards.
  • 9 to 15 meters business boat, cleaning boat, large sightseeing boat, etc., generally suitable for 10 to 25 kW thrust outboards.
  • 18 to less than 18 meters business boats, yachts, mono/catamaran sailing boats, etc., generally suitable for 10 to 40 kW thrust inboards.
  • 18 to 30-meter work boats, fishing boats, ferry boats, medium and large sailing boats, etc., are generally suitable for inboard engines with 100 kW thrust.
How to choose the corresponding battery capacity according to the power system?

For example: if you have a 24-volt thruster, you need to find the running power in the user manual: e.g. 500w at full power operation, then the consumed power is 500/ 24 ≈ 20Amps, and different Amps for different power. The formula is: power (W) divided by voltage (V) = Amps

You have a 24V thruster that runs at 500w, the power consumption is 500/ 24= 20Amps, and if you want it to run for 5 hours, then you need a 20*5=100Ah Li-ion Battery Pack.

The battery formula can also be used if we use Watts and Watt-hours instead of Amps and Amp-hours. The answer stays the same. The formula is Needed battery (in Wh) = Watt (W) * Desired Sailing Time (in hours)

Your propulsion is usually running at 50% and you want the run time to be at least 5 hours, at 50% the motor is 240W, at this point you need the Needed battery (in Wh) = 240 (Wattage consumed by the motor) x 5 (Desired run time), you will need a 24-volt battery pack of at least 240 x 5 = 1200W!
