FAQ

Can I power the Spirit 1.0 Evo series with an external battery?

Yes, and an external battery power cable is required. Officially, we recommend the ePropulsion 48V E-Series battery to extend the range. We also recommend a cowling for looking good when you remove the original Spirit battery.

How to store the Spirit battery during the long term?

Store the battery in the dry environment and keep the battery charge level at 60% around, and charge the battery every 3 months.

How to find the right shaft length?

Is Spirit 1.0 Evo series good for saltwater use?

Yes, it is designed for extensive use in the saltwater. We choose high-quality aluminum alloy as the base material, and apply anodizing coating and powder coating on top of it. For more info, please check ePropulsion Blog: How do we make an outboard corrosion-resistant?

Will the motor turn off automatically if I forget to power off after use?

Yes, Spirit 1.0(R) Evo will switch off after 30 mins without operation.
