Torqeedo Ultralight 403 Kayak Motor
Torqeedo Ultralight 403
4 mounting options available. For the use with Hobie kayaks, the Hobie specific motor eVolve is recommended (available through Hobie dealerships). For the use with Grabner kayaks, please use Grabner mounting kits. For the use with Prijon kayaks, please use the Prijon rudder mount. By using the mounting ball included in the delivery, the Ultralight can be mounted onto almost any kayak. Steering: can be attached to kayaks own steering system/rudder. Watertightness All motor components are watertight, protected against complete immersion. Safety: The motor shuts off when the magnetic key on the remote throttle control is removed. Therefore, for safety reasons, the magnetic key should be attached to the wrist or the life vest. If the kayak capsizes, the motor shuts off automatically to avoid possible injury. Battery charge time: When fully discharged, the charge time with the charger supplied is approx. 12 hours. Lithium battery life expectancy: Charge cycles are not the main factor affecting the service life of the lithium-manganese battery. The battery does not have a memory-effect. Generally, a loss of capacity of 4% per year can be assumed. Aging is accelerated if the battery is exposed to high temperatures for long periods and if it is stored fully charged for long periods. Therefore, the battery can be used in very hot conditions, but should be removed from the sun and stored in a cool place when not used. If it is stored for a longer period of time, its charge status should be about 50%. If these instructions are followed, your battery will have a life expectancy of some 6-10 years. Integrated battery specifications: The integrated battery has a capacity of 320 Wh, i.e. 11 Ah at 29.6 V.
