    Electric reel - power supply options?

    How are people here powering their reels, are they using the boats battery or is there anyone here using power banks for this?

    My boat only has a single battery and rather than install a second one I’m considering buying a portable jump starter/battery bank to double as the ‘house’ battery and run the reel, phones etc. It could also be used to start the boat (or ute) in the event of a flat start battery.

    Any words of wisdom or power bank recommendations from forum members?

    Would you not be fishing on the drift with the engine running? If so wouldn't be an issue to run off the main start battery.

    I've got a dual batt setup but my boats to small to go hunt the deep water....my second batt is a medium agm and is just used as a total loss system and charge at home.....I haven't got a electric reel but I imagine it would handle a day on a charge as it will easily do 2 days running sounder and stereo.

    Yip - no issues when its running which would likely be most of the time hence I'm reluctant to install a second battery.

    The battery bank option would allow me to have all the benefits of a second battery on board but be more versatile as I can use it across several vehicles.

    Mate was using one of those little battery jump back things, works a treat. I actually just brought one of the little batteries that you strap to the rod, bloody great because you aren't hooked up to the boat...was about $400 but you should get a couple days out of it.

    Twin batteries, installed 1 socket under the mid point of both gunnels, brought a extra cable for the reel (beastmaster 9000), cut the clips off and put a plug on it.
    Can use reel either side no issues. Plus have the clipped cable if on a mates boat.
    However, the main mate that I would use the reel with also has the same socket/plug set up, so we can swap around easy as.
    Please excuse spelling, as finger speed is sometimes behind brain spped........ Or maybe the other wayy.....

    If you are going deep enough that you need electric reels, you need two batteries. It's a big lonely place out there when things don't go to plan.
    You could just do what I do and take your wife. You do the driving and she does the winding.

    Really 2 days? How many amp/hour is the battery?
