Just out of curiosity, how does the lithium battery take to being fitted in an inherently wet environment?

Interesting. What are you expecting the top + cruising speed to be? What do you think it's range/endurance will be? How long does it take to recharge (from almost dead to full)? is typical marina shore power all you need to charge it?

Are you going to have an Aux?

The lower unit of the engine looks very like a normal outboard it looks like low water intakes? Is there a cooling system for the motor or have torqueedo bought the gearbox from an outboard manufacturer? Also looks like through hub exhaust which is obviously not needed for electric motor
Going to be interesting to see how it goes once it hits the water
How does the all up weight of the engine and batteries compare to the combined weight of a comparable petrol outboard and fuel tank?

The i3 has a range of approximately 125 miles and a horsepower of 170 so is you are using a motor approximately half the power of the i3 ....so maybe 250 lands miles and equate land miles mpg to sea miles mpg ratio you might get a 25 mile range???
Just guess and nothing more scientific than what i've laid out :

I think you better get the i3 range extender engine as well

I'll certainly be interested to see the result and find out the range, given that you'll rarely use full throttle on an i3, and with 80hp on a 6m rib you'll be pretty much on the throttle stops all the time.

Hopefully you'll get good results.

How much does the motor and battery weigh?

hi dave,

the i3 battery is usually mounted directly on the underside of the bmw car. im guessing it is designed to see a lot of water spray and also salt from the road.

I also know it is designed to be submerged momentarilly. interesting footage on youtube if you can find it

i plan to seal the battery into the space i'm creating, although it will need some kind of ventilation.
