The Torqeedo Ultralight Electric Trolling Motor is an electric outboard that is suitable for kayaks in that it is extremely light and also watertight. The Torqeedo Ultralight Electric Trolling Motor fits onto almost any kayak by using The Torqeedo Ultralight Electric Trolling Motor. It is much faster than a kayaker can paddle, and provides a worthwhile range on a full charge to get you to those remote locations and back. The Torqeedo Ultralight Electric Trolling Motor weighs only 16 lbs including the battery. Alternatively, the motor can be connected to the rudder or the steering system of the boat, which makes it very maneuverable (e.g. for fishing). All components are watertight and protected against complete immersion. 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 your wrist or your life vest. If the kayak capsizes, the motor shuts off automatically to avoid possible injury. Charge time with the included charger is approximately 12 hours and 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.

Works great at low speed you could go 6-7 hours, I have been out 3 times so far, each about 1.5 hours each, the lowest the battery got was 82% from a full charge, only complaint is the GPS function stopped working after my first time out and has never worked again.
A must have for electric kayak power, if you can afford it.
