Looking for some help or idea of what is wrong. I am running a 24v system one of the batteries keeps dying like braking not able to be recharged. Any ideas?
How would i check to see if the charger is frying them? I have a 3 bank charger and it is only effecting the middle battery on the charger which just so happens to be the most forward battery. My battery layout is like this charger is in the console along with the cranking which is hooked up to the first lead of the charger then there are two batteries in the forward storage area connected the the 2nd and 3rd leads. There is a 1-2-all switch in the rear to turn them on. The trolling motor batteries are 24DC walmart specials. That is all I know about the system as of yet. Any help would be appriciated.Have you checked to see if your charger is frying them?
My dad had one of those chargers that you leave plugged up all the time. Something went screwy inside and it didn't shut off like it was supposed to when the battery was charged, so it basically cooked the battery.
If you've been thru three, then it obviously isn't just a bad battery. The odds of getting three bad ones in a row is like astronomically huge.
Where do you see a K2 battery capable of use in a trolling motor application? Biggest 12 or 24 vdc battery I see is 9.6 amp-hr, about one tenth of the capacity of most good deep cycle batteries.Check out the K2 lithiums. They are supposed to last about 10 years, plus the weigh about 13 pounds. They aren't cheap, but the weight savings and the ability to be recharged a couple of thousand times may be worth the difference in price. If you have "blown" three in last month, I would suspect charger has gone to the weeds. Try what the others say in their posts, and hopefully that will pinpoint the problem. Good luck.

Rated for 28.8 Amp-hr, my AGM group 27 batteries are rated for 100 amp-hr. No way they would last for a decent day of fishing. Good technology, but wrong application.
