Not to sure

Comments about Autocraft Marine 12V Marine/RV Deep Cycle Service Battery:

I purchased 2 of these batteries in the fall of 2012 for a sailboat to be used for starting and general use radio, bilge pump, etc. The boat was hardly use due to a back injury until recently, midsummer 2013. The motor was run once or twice and as well the batteries being on charge an hour or so once or twice. Otherwise they were sitting in the boat with a dry bilge and no electronics on. I was surprised to find one of the batteries was low on charge while the other was holding a charge.
I was also surprised to find the fluid was low in the one battery. I then checked the other battery it was low also? I will be charging the low battery separate from the good battery but am concerned about it holding a charge.
I purchased these batteries for the new design, light weight, taking up less space. With these batteries you could get 3 batteries where you once had 2 traditional lead cell batteries. I am still excited about have lighter batteries. But I am not sure these are the batteries or the technology is not quite there. If you purchase these batteries you may need to keep a very close eye on the fluid levels, more so than you have needed to with traditional batteries. Hope you have better luck than I have had thus far.

  • Q:

    I just received answer to question regarding the reserve minutes rating for this battery as being only 48 minutes. I find this number hard to believe since your lowest priced marine battery is rated at about 90 minutes. And the 31dp6 battery is rated for 210 minutes of reserve. can you explain how each is rated and why this expensive battery is so low in reserve minutes. I would have guessed it would be much higher than 48 minutes.

  • Q:

    Like a previous post... What is the cold cranking amps,reserve capacity and amps? Is this a maintenance free battery? I need a deep cycle battery for my back up sump pump system.They recommend atleast 140 Amp,675 CCA and 180 minutes reserve capacity and it should be a non-sealed battery(not sure why,I rather not need to add distilled water periodically but thats what the manual reads).
