Torqeedo battery for electric outboard motors
"Travel" and "Ultralight"
The battery housing of the motor may not be watertight on some units, allowing water to enter the housing when submerged.
If water enters the housing, it may cause a chemical reaction with the lithium battery that could lead to a fire.
What to do
If you have one of the potentially affected models, stop using it and register the battery with Torqeedo via their website.
You will be directed to a local Torqeedo Service Centre who will check the affected products for water tightness and repair where necessary.
