    I use electric reels and have always had hard wired into house battery - connected to plugs in cockpit. Mate uses a ‘standard’ size motorbike battery on his boat and gets a good day worth of drops fishing for hapuku
    Personally having used both systems find hard wire option great - its a set and forget option- no worries about remembering to charge battery or take it!

    Yeah I have the same question as Beaker, How many amp hrs was the battery? I have the 9000 beastmaster as well and was shocked to learn what the max current draw was. I know the 4000 model listed below is not the same as the OPs but I would expect similar current draw.


    The Shimano electric reels draw the below amperages

    Dendau Maru 4000 - 10 amp

    Beast master 9000 - 35 amp

    So for me that's less than 30min run time out of my 12 A/hr Lithium kontiki battery.

    I know when you have a couple of good blue nose on in 220m, the reel fare grunts.
    Happy to have it hooked to the house battery!
    Please excuse spelling, as finger speed is sometimes behind brain spped........ Or maybe the other wayy.....

    Hard wiring a socket(s) might be the way forward then. I fish Kaikoura where it gets really deep really quickly so need a full dayís worth of power for two reels in at least 200m of water. Iím getting the impression that power banks are not going to be up to the task but Iím reluctant to install a second battery in a small boat. Guess thatís where these portable jump starters come into their own.

    Hard wire the sockets in, onto you existing battery(with circuit breaker disconnect), and leave motor running when using. You should be good to go.
    From memory the plug and socket was about $60-70. Cb maybe the same.
    Oh and spare cord was from aliexpress.

    If you use electric eels as bait they become self powered

    I respect your beliefs but don't impose them on me.

    Don’t use a jump start pack, they have electrical circuits in them and salt water stuffs them real quick.

    I just run 18ah dry cell batteries and they last a full days fishing out Kaikoura.

    Like you I have a single battery setup but put a good size battery in and it would have not trouble running the reel. Remember they are only working for 4-5min at a time per lift.
