This was recommended for starting my boat [...] After less than 2 seasons it has died. I kept a trickle charge on it during the winter. Put it in the boat last week for boating season and it would not start. Had it fully charged and still nothing. Took it in and was determined to be a bad cell. Less than two years is all you will get out of this one as a starting battery. I used it for just to crank up my 140 hp I/O boat. Could have been mis-applied (better for a trolling motor), but it was the recommended battery for my application. [...]

      Comments about Autocraft Marine / RV 12-Volt Deep Cycle Battery, Group Size 24M, 550 CCA:

      I use this battery to power a 12v 2100gph bilge pump for gold prospecting. No problems with the battery so far. This battery holds a good charge and can run my bilge pump for long periods of time without needing to be recharged. I've never ran the battery completely dead, even after running the bilge pump on this fully charged battery for 8 hours straight. I'm sure that it would last many hours longer if I needed it too. So far I am very pleased with my purchase of this advance auto parts brand battery.

        This battery was a replacement for our original deep cycle marine battery on our travel trailer. I haven't had it long enough to comment on how long it lasts or how well it holds a charge but I can say the installation was easy and it is an exact fit.

          I neglected to check the date code before I purchased this Marine deep cycle battery. The thing is produced 9 months before I bought it and with a stingy 12 mos warranty I felt like I have been given a 3 month warranty. Time will tell if this thing makes it through 1 boating season but I am already unhappy Advance Auto Parts would put a 9 month old battery on the shelf for people to purchase.

            IT'S hard for me to understand why the warranty on this battery is only one year, and no pro ratting.You could buy a car battery, put some terminal lugs on and have a batery warranted for 5years.This is the second battery and the last I will buy with a one year warranty.

                  What is the normal float charge for this battery?

                  • CUSTOMER CARE

                    A:

                    I'm happy to help, George! The average float voltage for a 12-volt lead-acid battery is 13.4 volts. Most trickle chargers have a setting at 1.5 to 2 amps to keep the charge in the battery when not in use.

                    A great option would be a automatic charger such as Part No. PS-1562A, PSC-15AOB or SSC-1000A. There are others as well that you may want to look at.

                    A:

                    I'm happy to help, Dan! That will depend upon how deeply the battery is discharged as to how long it will take to charge. Based on the specifications of this Autocraft Marine/RV 12-Volt Deep Cycle Battery 24M 550CCA, your 2 amp charge may take about 29-30 hours to recharge the battery. An automatic battery charger can help a lot with charging your battery properly and quickly, such as Schumacher Part No. SC-600A or Part No. SSC-1000A.

                    A:

                    Hi Adam, that's actually a serious question! Always charge a battery in a well ventilated area. Because, all lead acid batteries contain sulfuric acid which can cause severe burns and can generate explosive gases. Even a maintenance free battery has vents to relieve the internal gases that build up inside the battery. Even though they look like sealed units, acid can still escape should the battery be tipped over or even over charged. Cover the vent cap area with a wet cloth to prevent sparks from igniting escaping gases.

                    Hi CARY, great question! You can use a 10 or 12 amp charger to charge this battery. Use the lowest amperage on the charger for charging. For instance if the charger has 6A, 4A, and 2A settings, use 2A on it.
