Have had 2 in a mixed bank with West Marine batteries. These held up, the WM are dead. Even though the two are still good (going strong), they are 4 years old (longer than warranty), so just bought 8 batteries to build new bank twice the size of the original. Just stay on top with maintenance, and they're good. No complaints!

Seems ok so far

Battery only showed 50% charge on my charger shortly after pickup, that worried me a bit, but I charged it completely, and it seems to work just fine.

1 year warranty, so if it does not hold up, I will return it.

Comments about AutoCraft Marine / RV 12-Volt Deep Cycle Battery, Group Size 27, 600 CCA:

Purchased battery in July 2014 to replace a 6 year old battery that still worked OK. Battery was purchased to power a 42 lb. thrust electric trolling motor. Started to get weak in August 2015. In October 2015 had battery fully charged 2 days before going to the lake. Set the bow-mount electric trolling motor in the water to begin fishing. The motor ran slowly for about 3 seconds and then stopped altogether. The charge indicator on the motor showed the battery in need of recharging. This ruined a day of fishing. This battery was well maintained and kept on an automatic charger when not in use. There was no parasitic draw on the battery from the trolling motor. My old battery, which I kept and is now 7 years old, still works fine. Advance Auto offers a 12 month free replacement warranty and no pro-rate warranty after 12 months. Now, all it is good for is a core to return when I buy another battery way too soon.

I will never buy another battery from Advance Auto Parts

      Comments about AutoCraft Marine / RV 12-Volt Deep Cycle Battery, Group Size 27, 600 CCA:

      I purchased this battery less than two years ago, with a manufacture date of 5/13. It received only light seasonal use to start my outbooard motor and was kept on a float trickle charger in the off-season. Depite this, when I checked it this morning (4/18/15) it was dead and would not take a charge. Although it outlived its warranty, it did not measure up to any batteries that I have used before. I'll be looking at other brands to replace it. Bummer. I was looking forward to going out in the boat, but since Dowling Park, FL is in the middle of nowhere, I can't get a battery on a moment's notice.

      I bought 2 of these batteries to try on my 1 kw solar power bank and these batteries only lasted for 18 months and both developed a dead cell on the positive side port. One developed a dead cell on the first + cell and the other developed a dead cell in the second + cell. These batteries were monitored and charged with a mppt charger and never discharged less than 70%

              Comments about AutoCraft Marine / RV 12-Volt Deep Cycle Battery, Group Size 27, 600 CCA:

              In 2011 I purchased two of these batteries for use in parallel as power for my home's back-up sump pump, as recommended by my pump's specs. Three years later I finally discovered that my back-up pump's inverter had stopped functioning because one of these two batteries was completely empty of electrolyte while the other one had stopped holding a charge. Yes, it's possible that the empty battery may've been mistakenly sold to me that way and that the two being connected in parallel as they were may've degraded the one full battery over time, I'll never know for sure. But in May 2014 I nevertheless decided to go ahead and replace both batteries with identical units (making SURE they were both serviced this time), completed the installation, and they appear to be functioning great at this point. So we'll see. I check them daily. Can't beat the price though.

              • Q:

                This item is claimed to have 115AH according to the responses by AutoZone of a number of questions posted. If I am correct, Part No: 29HM is supposed to have 105AH again according to AutoZone responses to customer questions. How can a smaller less expensive battery have a greater capacity?

                Please consider the following scenario:
                I have an application which draws a max of 6.67AH at 12vDC. I'm looking for a deep cycle battery to get the maximum run time. Would either this item or Part No: 29HM be my best choice? If not, please advise the highest capacity deep cycle battery you carry. Thank you!
                Asked on 12/17/2015 by Dustin from Omaha, NE

                • CUSTOMER CARE

                  A:

                  Good question, Dustin! Most deep cycle batteries that we have seen use a method called the "20 hour rate" to determine the amp hour capacity of batteries and this is one. Earlier, these batteries used the "1 hour amp rate" and this makes the amp hour rating appear higher than it actually is (unless you really only drain these at a rate of 1 amp per hour, which is a rare case). Since they are using a different methodology to determine the amp hour capacity, you cannot do a fair comparison with a different battery whose amp hour rating was determined using the usual 20-hour rate method. Using the 20 hour rate to determine the amp hour capacity of these batteries would likely result in an amp hour rating in the high 80s, and not 115 like the earlier responses say. This is due to something called the Peukert's Law.

                • A:

                  If the battery does not show an actual tested amp hour rating on it, I wouldn't believe 115 is accurate. Group size cannot be tied directly to the amp hour rating. Now, the battery does show an actual rated reserve capacity of 160. If you follow a very basic rule of thumb that says you multiply that value by .467 (or simply divide the number by 2) you'll come out with probably a much more realistic estimate of around 75 to 80 amp hours for this battery.

                  A:

                  Happy to help you with your question JR! The AMP Hour Rating is based off group size. The Group size for this battery is 27. The battery is indeed maintenance free, it does have caps on the top but those are meant to vent gas. Any refilling done to the battery will create imbalances with the acid/electrolyte mixture and reduce the life of the battery.
