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.

      I use this battery in my schoolbus converted to a beach buggy on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I especially liked the convenience of top mounted posts and the carrying strap. The battery is heavy, however, just like all good ones are. Not a complaint - just an observation.

            I used 11 of these batteries to create a 950AH battery bank in my live aboard 36' power boat. I have 615w of solar panels and an MPPT charge controller, as well as a 5kw generator to keep the batteries charged. So far, all is great. Today, I baked bread in my bread machine using only my batteries and solar panels. All went well and the bread tasted great.

                A:

                Hi POWER, for charging the Autocraft Marine / RV 12-Volt Deep Cycle Battery, Group Size 27, 600 CCA - part# 27DC-2, set the charger on 10A for the first few hours of recharging. There is little to be gained in charging very slowly at first, but go to 2A say after 4 hours. That will take several more hours to bring the battery to it's peak storage level. The charger will cut completely off, once the battery is charged.

            • Q:

              Is there somewhere to look up real specifications on this battery? The answers here are highly conflicting. Ex, one answer says its permanently sealed while the next question says the caps are removeable. Another answer says its 160Ah, while the last answer says it 85-90Ah. Why is it so hard to find out the Ah rating on DC batteries? That is the primary specification for deep cycle use. This looks like a good deal, but lack of true and accurate specifications is rather annoying.
