Electric outboards present a compelling alternative to traditional gas motors, offering safety, quiet operation, and sustainability benefits. Yet, questions about range often arise. In this article, we delve into the range dilemma with electric outboards and explore the innovations in battery technology that have addressed these concerns.
Range, a common concern with electric vehicle (EV) motors, refers to how far a charged boat can travel. Monitoring and controlling range are essential aspects of electric outboard usage. Our outboard motor systems simplify this with an intuitive touchscreen system.
Range can vary due to several factors, including:
Selecting an intelligent system is crucial for optimizing each charge, ensuring you get the most out of your electric outboard.
Our user-friendly touchscreen provides valuable information, such as:
This data empowers users to manage their time on the water effectively and safely, including the ability to adjust speed as needed. Additionally, our system incorporates GPS, eliminating navigational errors.
It’s important to understand that many of the range concerns of the past have been solved by continuous innovation and battery technology development. EV competition is heating up and companies have invested in R&D to stay current.
While electric outboards have made significant strides in range, it’s essential to ensure it meets your specific needs. For those seeking extended range, onboard solar or portable chargers are viable options. However, for most recreational boaters, ACEL Power’s motors offer more than sufficient range, with a maximum reach of approximately 120 miles (200 kilometers).
Unlike some competitors that require you to buy your battery separately, ACEL Power provides an integrated battery system designed to work seamlessly with our motors. This integration ensures accurate and accessible range information.
Our product lineup offers versatility and power:
50HP: Battery pack with two stable li-ion batteries connected to a control module
75HP: Battery pack with three stable li-ion batteries connected to a control module
This configuration enhances power and range compared to single-battery designs found elsewhere in the market. Additionally, ACEL Power’s battery pack is designed to last at least seven years with regular usage.
Now is the opportune moment to introduce electric propulsion to your clients. Range concerns that once plagued EV technology have been effectively addressed. Once your customers experience the quiet and torque of electric outboards, they’ll be convinced.
