When I bought the battery from advantage auto or whatever-I measured the voltage and it read 13.8 volts.
We were out on the lake for a few hrs and ran it on 5 across the lake and also on the way back. we trolled a little on 2. I didn't get the digital and it was not the money at all.
I doubt if I would be trolling all day on a low setting. This 55 with the 36"shaft is really nice. when we got it home after fishing I checked the voltage and it read 13.6-I went out today for two hrs and it really got windy all of a sudden and I had to get off the lake-voltage read 13.2.I read somewhere you can charge it up to 14.4 volts but I just put it on the charger and brought it up to 13.9.
I think you can use this all day and be ok.Run it on five to your destination and then a low number like 2 to troll. Fish were not hitting today.
I just had worms and also cast for a little while.
I could see the fish in the water clear as a bell but they would not hit.They would come right up to it and sometimes nudge it but not take it.Two small pickeral on a mepps spinner was all I caught
