I have had the 30, 40, and now the 45. The better DEEP-CYCLE battery you use will serve you longer, with less turn-around time(charging)

You only need one battery, and the size kind of depends on how long you want to be out on the water. I bought the biggest, heaviest battery I could, which lasts over 5 hours if used continuously on my 55# trolling motor.

A marine deep cycle battery and a charger will be needed. I use the Minn Kota charger available from Bass Pro and a Bass Pro wet (flooded) cell battery (don't see it available on the web site). If you have a Bass Pro close to home, the staff can help you get the right battery. There are different types of batteries (wet cell, AGM, Gel), with the wet (flooded) cell usually being the least expensive. There are advantages to AGM and Gel, so using the knowledge at your local Bass Pro store will help you get the right battery for your need.

A Deep Cycle marine battery.
A 30 lb thrust won't need the largest on the shelf. However, for endurance, get at least a mid-size marine battery.
Expect to pay around $60 to $80 dollars.
