The starting-point for highly efficient outboards The motors in the BaseTravel range are the stationary companions to the Travel models. They have the same excellent efficiency in the drive train but are connected just like conventional electrical drives via cable connections to standard lead batteries. Instead of a foldable shaft, they are equipped with a fixed shaft. As no lithium batteries are integrated into the BaseTravel models, they are considerably less expensive than the Travel motors. Additionally, they are also suitable for applications within the performance range of the Travel line, where higher battery capacity is required.

The BaseTravel 401 model works with a voltage of 12 V, whereas the BaseTravel 801 model is operated at 24 V. A cable connection for standard lead batteries with integrated fuse is contained within the scope of delivery. Similar to the battery of the Travel model, the removable cable adapter serves as main switch of the BaseTravel model. A bridging cable is also delivered for serial connection of two lead batteries to each other (for BaseTravel 801).

The cable adapter set of the BaseTravel as well as the lithium batteries of the Travel can be locked onto the shaft with a bolting device

Upwards compatible: The BaseTravel also runs on lithium batteries For uses where the mobility of the BaseTravel is important or for the use of back-up batteries, the motor can also be driven using the Travel replaceable battery, available as an optional accessory. Using the lithium high-performance battery, the BaseTravel motors achieve the same performance as that of comparable Travel models.
