Chris Brown

Anglers' Channel

Born and raised in Huntsville, Alabama, Chris Brown grew up fishing with his uncle and grandpa for as long as he can remember. He never dreamt that he would be able to turn his hobby into a lifelong career. Throughout his now eighteen years working in the fishing industry, Chris took advantage of opportunities to work on film crews and eventually taught himself photography. From his role as Marketing Director for Strike King Lure Company to becoming the President of the Anglers’ Channel, Chris has been able to successfully merge his passion for photography and media with his passion for fishing.

After spending countless days on the water, moving from tournament to tournament to capture images and videos of top anglers, Chris noticed more and more of his professional angler friends transitioning to longer-lasting, lighter and fast charging RELiON lithium batteries to stay competitive. Chris decided to make the switch to RELiON lithium batteries two years ago and has since been able to maintain reliable power throughout each day, spend more time on the water, and focus exclusively on his content creation work and his fishing.

Chris’s power system includes:

Chris’s Ranger Z521L bass boat uses three long-lasting, energy-dense RELiON RB100 batteries to power his trolling motor. His boat also uses one robust RELiON RB100HP battery for cranking as well as to power all of the electronics on his boat, including live wells, depth finders, and GPS for fishing, in addition to his laptop, iPad, and camera for his photography and videography work.

Why Chris switched to lithium:

“I knew some professional anglers who had made the switch from lead-acid to lithium and I knew they didn’t have to constantly monitor their energy use like I was having to with my lead-acid batteries. Since I use the batteries on my boat to power both my fishing as well as my media work all day every day, reliable, long-lasting power was essential. I grew tired of worrying about whether I’d have enough energy left to fish, work, and also make it back to the shore each day.”

Why Chris chose RELiON:

“I had a few professional angler friends I met through my work that spoke very highly of RELiON batteries. There are a ton of different batteries out there, but after having these batteries recommended by professional fishermen and researching RELiON’s website to see just how much they invested in the engineering of their batteries, I was sold. I also like that RELiON works closely with Ranger Boats, which I’m a big fan of.”

How Chris’s lithium system helped him challenge his limits:

“I’m able to spend more time on the water and focus whole-heartedly on improving my fishing and completing my work for the day. With my RELiON batteries, there’s no power drop off throughout the day, so I can continue working or fishing at the same capacity without worry all day long.”

What Chris loves most about bass fishing:

“Fishing has always been a welcome escape that allows me to get away from the rat race of life, enjoy the outdoors and relax on the lake. I also love that it’s a constant challenge that really makes you think. I especially love being able to capture the joy of other anglers through my photography.”

Chris’s advice for people considering switching to lithium batteries:

“RELiON’s lithium batteries have a much quicker charge time, which allows you to get back on the water faster. Also, switching to lithium batteries removed the weight of about one person off my boat, which allows me to navigate shallower waters and travel faster. It was completely worth the initial upfront investment for the long-term peace of mind.”
