This trolling motor cable extension kit allows for the quick and easy lengthening of motor wires without impacting the performance of the trolling motor. This extension kit is compatible with all Newport Vessels branded trolling motors! It's marine grade, made with tin coated copper wire.

Adding a trolling motor to your boat can quickly change the weight distribution, and handling characteristics, especially of smaller craft like kayaks, canoes and jon boats. This weight distribution is further complicated by large, heavy marine batteries which often double or triple the weight of a motor. The new wire extension kit by Newport Vessels solves this issue by allowing you to place the battery anywhere in your kayak, jon or other boat! Allowing you to correct the uneven weight distribution without risk to you, passengers, or the trolling motor. A thick, 8 AWG cable ensures there is no performance loss through the extended battery cable between the battery and the trolling motor. High quality brass connecting hardware maintains a solid connection and electricity flow, so you get every last pound of thrust.

  • 5ft Black & 5ft Red Cable
    • 8 AWG Marine Grade: Tin coated Copper.
  • Connecting Hardware
    • 2 x Brass Bolts, 2 x Brass Tightening Nuts, 4 x Brass Washers.
  • Electrical Tape
    • Included for safety and covering the metal connections.

Wire Extension/Circuit Breaker

Used the extra wire just for flexibility if needed. Circuit breaker because sometimes I "Whoops", haha. Ran over my line last year blew the fuse and had to do work to get my kayak back in. Made a little battery box type thing - figure it will work pretty well.

High Quality and Reliable

I recently purchased the 10ft extension to wire my motor to my battery box through hull on the bow of my kayak!!! Worked like a charm and zero loss on such a long extension run!!!

Trolling motor and extension cable.

Although I still haven’t used my motor yet as it is a project in progress, I’m very satisfied with the tests I have done. I’m using mine in a project for a kayak. When completed I’m planning to send you pictures. I believe it is an excellent product, but only time will tell. I give it a 5 stars because what I see is exactly what I wanted. Thank you.

Could use a water resistant connector or cover

Good, cables came fast and work. But the product could use a water resistant connection or cover for the connection between battery and motor.

5ft Cable Extenstion Cable Kit

Received Cable Kit in a timely manner(5days) Well Packaged. Cables very flexible and no issues with assembly. I strongly recommend that you plan your battery lay out and measurements before you decide on size of cable 5ft or 10ft. I wish I would have bought the 10ft to allow for more routing options and protect cables more. My installment of the 5ft is ok but cables run down the center of boat floor and I must be aware not to walk on them.

Just what I needed. Battery weighs more than the canoe, so needed the motor in back and battery in front balance. Extension solved my issue perfectly.

Easy to make connection and plenty of power to the motor.

10' cable extension

The cables are of good quality, are very flexible, and the connectors are attached very nicely. I'm sure they will function as intended. BUT what you get are 2 SEPARATE CABLES. They are not joined to each other like an automotive set of jumper cables. Not very convenient in a boat. I taped mine together. A minor issue was that the black electrical tape that was included adhered very poorly, if at all, to the cables and connectors. I had to use my own black tape.
