 Product Description and Specs

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.

This motor/battery/control system is probably the best way to propel your kayak. We have installed it on a 2015 Hobie Tandem Island boat. Much better that the Hobie "Evolve" system due to the Ultralight 403's ability to tip up when striking an submerged object. The motor has plenty of power to push this 18.5 ft. boat against a 4 mph tidal current in SW Florida. One design issue that it shares with most trolling type motors is the air ventilation of the prop that occurs at about 5 mph due to the cylindrical shaft tube that is being pushed through the water. This occurs with the ultralight 403 also, but is not a problem for most uses of the motor. The life of the supplied Lithium Ion battery is significant. We have run the boat at 3 mph for 4 hrs. and still had over 40% life left. So 5 stars for quality and engineering. We were able to use a modified aircraft streamline tube faring to eliminate the turbulence induced ventilation and now can give the whole system 5 stars.

I installed the Ultralight on my custom built cedar strip 13' kayak. They should call it a "turbo thruster". The combination of paddling and electric gives it such speed you feel like your planing. A very impressive piece of equipment. German engineering lives up to it's reputation. Evidenced in the manner that parts fit during installation. The exact wattage consumption readout allows the user to monitor the power consumption. I found that one of the really nice things about adding electric is my hands are free to pick up a camera and get that shot without losing control or momentum. Expensive yes, but quality lives long after the price tag fades. My only complaint is that the installation guide could be more detailed with a parts description, propeller depth recommendations, etc. I hear a solar panel will be available soon for remote charging capability.
