Many factors can influence the autonomy of a battery, but as a general rule of thumb, with a load of a medium weight, not asking 100% of the power of the winch, the 2.5 Ah battery will last for about 20 minutes, which translates into pulling on a distance of 760 feet in 3rd speed.
With the 5 Ah battery, you will get about 40 minutes of continuous pulling, which represents pulling over more than 1,500 ft of distance!

Additional InformationSpec Sheet
I’m really pleased with this winch. The battery compatibility across multiple brands is a big plus. My only complaint is that the friction coefficient of the drums make the type of rope you can work with very limited. I wish they had more drum options for other rope types.
Glad the winch and batteries do the job!
Regarding the rope, it is true that friction is key. It is the basic principle of our winches. After almost 20 years manufacturing them, we came to the conclusion that polyester is the most efficient material to work on the capstan drums and the most cost efficient too. It grabs well on the drum (especially after having used it a few times) and it has a good resistance to heat.
Other materials, like you mentioned, will either slip on the drum or get damaged due to the heat generated by the friction. We encourage you to take a look at our rope selection to make sure you get the right one to use with your Portable Winch at https://www.portablewinch.com/collections/ropes.
Just can’t believe at this price it did not come with a battery!
