There is no one out there producing a Lithium-ion powered trolling motor. I, for one, would love to leave my 50 lb. acid battery at home and would pay top dollar for a lithium version. This would be a big hit with all boat owners who have trolling motors. PLEASE design and build one soon!

Torqueedo charges like two grand for a trolling motor with lithium battery capacity roughly equal to Ego's 7.5Ah battery. Based on pricing for their other products, Ego could likely sell a comparable model for half that price, and I would undoubtedly buy one. Until then, I'm thinking of making a DIY marine prop attachment for my Ego Power Head to propel a small inflatable dingy (don't worry Ego lawyers, I won't sue when something goes wrong ;-)). .
