Help needed Id battery needed.
« on: May 11, 2022, 03:52:29 pm »

Hi out there. I won this sub at auction. But apart from knowing that it carries Engel dive tanks which is nice I cant figure out what type and size of battery I need.I can see one of the electrical boards as 24v on it. But I have never heard of a 24v battery going into a model. Can anyone help. Thanks.

Don't know what submarine you won, but I imagine different subs had different battery
configurations based on available space. So a Typhoon would be different than a Gato class sub.

Maybe Engel can help? https://engel-modellbau.eu/

Have you tried contacting the seller to ask which battery (s) were used originally?
Just a thought...


Ray.

Edit: was it bought on ebay type auction or an auction house?

Engel dive tanks come in 6V or 12 v depending on motor size

Sorry chaps, its an early Engel nautilus. I cant make out what motors they are due to them both being under a mountain of fittings. On one motor I can see P24 44 49. I have contacted Engel but know reply so far.

The type 6V/12v should be on the label on the tanks, the motor type will not halo. Try lookiking at the control unit ( BTS)as the type should also tell you. Even if it is old Engel will be able to tell from the BTS type what voltage it is

Engel battery seems to be Panasonic 192W (12v). I am sure if you look it up and get dimensions you can find an equivalent here

Having said that finding the correct size 192 watt battery may be a challenge as it says high power and at 192 W/12v thats 16 amps
