Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do we carry E-Propulsion motors and batteries?

Yes we do!

Q: Do we have any E-Propulsion motors in stock?

Demand is so high we haven’t been able to keep them in stock. We are ordering motors in every month, so far they have sold out in pre-orders before they arrive. If you are interested we recommend getting in contact!

Q: How Do I order?

We want to help you find the motor that will work best for your needs. We need your first and last name, phone number, and email in addition to what products you are interested in. Call, text, email, or use the form on the Contact Us page. We will call you to confirm your order and then send an invoice with payment options.

Q:What is the cost of the outboards listed here?

Prices change based on various factors like shipping, import tariffs, hazardous materials handling (lithium batteries)… we suggest contacting us for pricing and ordering!

Q: Can I demo an ePropulsion motor?

We do not currently have a showroom, but contact us if you are interested in a demonstration of a Spirit 1.0 outboard. If you are in the Seattle, Puget Sound, or North Olympic Peninsula we may be able to arrange a demonstration, but we are a small business also working on marine repair. We ask for your patience if we are booked out.

Q: Does a solar charger charge off of any solar panel or do I need a special kind?

The E-Propulsion solar charger can charge off any 12V solar panel up to 180 watts, and can handle a high input. In addition, the solar charger can actually charge off any 12V power source, and we recommend this option for users wanting to charge off ship batteries.

Q: What is the difference between the Spirit 1.0 Plus and the Spirit 1.o Evo?

The upgraded Evo models can regenerate its battery while being pulled through the water. Basically the propeller becomes a turbine to charge your battery! It has the option for remote throttle or tiller, as well as an option for a safety wristband that will cut the motor if you ever fall overboard.

Q; How fast does the E-propulsion battery recharge on a standard charger vs the fast charger?

The standard charger is ready after 8.5 hours vs the fast charger is done in 3.5 hours so you can get back on the water as soon as possible.

Q: How powerful is the Electric motor Really?

We get this question often, as customers who are used to gas engines think in horsepower which varies based on the load put on it. An electric drive on the other hand will give the same output regardless of the load put on it. For example, we can get the same power output if we are motoring into shore with one person in a dinghy as when we are hauling a 35 foot sailboat in 30 knots of wind. (Which we have done but do not recommend!)

Q: What is the range of the Spirit battery?

1.2 hours at full throttle at 6.2 miles per hour (1kW), but small decreases in speed make a huge difference in range.

If you decrease to 5.3 mph you get 2.5 hours

Down to 4.4 mph you’ll go about 5 hours.

And 3.5 mph you can get up to 10 hours!

We suggest ordering a spare battery if you are really concerned about range. On our dinghy we carry the solar panel and charger kit to recharge the battery while we’re ashore or out for longer trips.

Q: What Maintenance do I need to do on my E-propulsion Motor?

Frankly, these motors need such little maintenance compared to gas, it almost seems like there’s not much to do! Some regular preventative care items will keep you running smooth and prevent corrosion so check your manual for a yearly maintenance schedule for 1. checking anode function 2. greasing moving parts, and 3. checking the propeller. We also recommend adding a small amount of dialetic grease to the power connection points.
