Temo has unveiled its new electric outboard engine: Temo 1000. Even more powerful than its younger brother Temo 450, it retains low weight and small size, yet gains power. The 450 W power model is perfect for use on small dinghies, while this one is also great on larger dinghies.
Lots of power in a small space
The engine has a streamlined design very different from the classic thermal outboard engine, in fact the long narrow shaft contains the removable battery and nothing else. At the ends of the Temo 1000
, on the side that ends up in the water we find the three-bladed propeller, while on the other end we find the tiller that allows the direction and acceleration to be governed. By turning the last section of the knob, the thrust of the motor can be adjusted. With the very convenient bracket provided, the engine can be installed very conveniently on any tender. With the “notch” adjustment, you can raise and lower the motor by adjusting it to the depth of the water, so you will have both a short-stemmed and a long-stemmed outboard. You can also choose to rotate Temo 1000 completely on itself to store it inside the tender and without having to remove it from the transom. The motor is completely waterproof (IP 67 grade) so there is no need to worry about leaving it exposed to water and weather.
Temo 1000 – Performance, charging time and price
The removable battery inside the Temo 1000 provides, according to the manufacturer, a45-minute runtime at full power that becomes 1 hour at cruising speed. The removable battery system, however, offers the possibility of expanding the range simply by purchasing a second battery to be kept charged and ready for use at all times. The lithium-ion battery is recharged in about 5 hours with the included 220 V charging cable. You can recharge the Temo 1000 even from a 12V power outlet in 12 hours when you are aboard your boat. The engine will be shipped from spring 2023 and is priced at 2,850 euros.
