In respect to this, how many amps does a Minn Kota trolling motor draw?
While the Minn Kota Endura C2 30 Freshwater Transom Mounted Trolling Motor (30" Shaft) model takes 32 amps/hr to get that 30 lbs of thrust, this one can do 30 lbs of thrust for roughly 18 amps/hr. 40 to 45 lbs thrust is roughly 29 amps/hr instead of the 42 amps/hr that those respective motors draw for the same thrust.
Likewise, how much power does a trolling motor use? But small trolling motors usually draw about 20 amps per hour (at 12 volts).

How long will a 12v battery run a trolling motor?
A battery with a 1 Ah capacity should be able to deliver a current of 1 amp or discharge for an uninterrupted 1 hour. As a general rule, smaller batteries are usually rated at 25 Ah to 50 Ah and bigger deep-cycle batteries could be rated as high as 100 Ah. There is no ideal amp-hour rating for a trolling motor battery.
