Information on range and speed:
When travelling through water, displacement increases power required in proportion to the cube (third power) of the speed. This means that doubling water speed increases the power required eightfold.
Conversely, it of course also means that only a slight reduction in speed will increase the range attainable significantly. Simply reducing speed by e.g. half a knot has a considerable effect on the remaining range.Since mental arithmetic to the power of three is quite tricky, the on-board computer of the Travel constantly calculates the remaining range for you. To do this, it combines the consumption data from the motor with the charge level of the batteries together with the speed over water obtained via GPS. This means you can read the remaining range in real time from the Travel's display. Using the TorqTrac App you can even read the remaining range from a map on your smartphone.

Charging batteries from the on-board power system
In some instruction manuals, it is written that an inverter is required to charge from an on-board power system. This is wrong.
What's correct is that: The battery can be charged with a voltage range of 9.5V....50V. The minimum current must be 4A.
Ideally, one should use the TORQEEDO DC charger, which is equipped with a cigarette lighter adapter and a 5.5/2.5 mm coaxial power connector.
If the battery is to be charged through this cable, it is essential to ensure that the connection's polarity is correct.
Check the position of the coaxial power connector: The center contact is POS, the external contact is NEG. Non-compliance can lead to damage occuring, which is not covered under the warranty.
