CW - Battery Life
« on: February 06, 2021, 12:07:56 PM »
Tom,
   Will I be able to get Lithium batteries for our Mokai's once they reach their end?
Approaching the fifth year, so far so good.

You might need a regulator upgrade first, but that won't be a problem since I can get those still.

Is it something I can install or would I need to ship the motor to you?  :-O

I would make up the regulator and you could swap it on yourself. Or just put it on the list of things to do if you come down at the end of the year for another visit. haha  \./8

I left the boats on the trailer this year and covered with a thicker tarp while also taking the batteries out and putting on a shelf in the basement.
I ran a test on both of them today. Readings were 12.6 and 12.8.

Good deal, not bad for sitting. Full charge would be 13.1. I think you've got another year or two left in those.  ;)

Good news. We normally bring the Mokai's into the house during the winter months. I have never put them on a trickle charge device either.

Not bad, once you go Lithium though you'll never look back. Weight savings alone makes it worth the swap.  \./8
