Independent test comparisons confirm the superiority of Torqeedo outboards.
The revolutionary boat drive:
ultra lightweight, ultra mobile, ultra strong. The foldable Torqeedo outboards with integrated lithium-manganese high-performance battery redefine mobility:
With their integrated lithium-manganese, high-performance battery, the Travel motors are the only electric outboard motors which do not need an external battery connection.
The Torqeedo Travel is a true lightweight: with a total weight of 25 pounds (short shaft version) including battery, it is asserting itself as the lightest outboard on the market.
The Travel models are the only foldable outboard motors available on the market. They come in a waterproof travel pack and, hence, are unique with regard to their transportability. With their dimensions of 12.2 x 12.6 x 17.7 inches, they can easily be stowed away on board or at home.
Together with the BaseTravel and Torqeedo Cruise models, the Travel models are the most efficient motors around at the moment. Their efficiency is up to twice that of the conventional motors.
The sum total of these properties make a Torqeedo Travel motor into the perfect drive for small boats, dinghies, tenders, jollies, and daysailors up to 1.5 tons of displacement. There is simply no competition when it comes to performance, transport and space-saving storage – both on board and on land.
More control by combining stepless speed control and defined speeds. In addition to the stepless forwards/reverse drive over all power ranges, the Travel 401 / 801 models are equipped with predefined speeds. These have been defined for maximization of the range traveled and as 1 hour traveling time with a full battery (2 hours for Travel 401). This provides the user with additional possibilities to check and regulate the power consumption and range of the boat.
The Travel also runs on lead batteries
For uses where the mobility of the Travel model is not important or where a larger battery bank is required, the motor can also be connected to standard lead batteries using the batter adapter delivered as an accessory.
