    Does anyone use the Optima batteries for a 24v trolling motor? Does the D34M have enough capacity to run the trolling motor thru a typical tournament day?

    I have 3 optima's in my rig running a 36 Volt system with both a Terrova and an EM on the back of the boat, I can run all day using it trolling in a tourney, I just got them last september but so far so good they are working out really well.

    You running the D34M's or the D31M's. The 31 is the bigger battery

  5. Do you need a special charger for these gel batteries? I have been hesitant to move to these type of batteries because of this.

    Not that I'm aware of it's still a 12V Battery, I have the same 4 bank charger in my boat that I had on my last boat without the Optima's running regular batteries.
