I installed this battery in a Actioncraft/Coastal Bay sportfishing boat with a 175 hp Evinrude
O/B motor. In addition, I need 12 volt battery power for a VHF radio, Lowrance GPS/fishfinder,
Power Pole, livewell pumps, etc....and then to have power to start the O/B several time during the day to move to another fishing spot.
With a 1000 marine cranking amps and 800 cold cranking amps this battery has the power I need.

        800 CCA cranks my boat's 4.3LX every time. Ordered online and picked it up at the store. Only downside is that this battery comes with nuts instead of the wingnuts that every other marine battery has. Save your old wingnuts and you are good to go.

                  This is the second battery I have purchased for my boat, it has 3. The other purchased from Advanced Auto is still going strong. I don't see a need to invest in ultra expensive batteries when these reasonably priced batteries from Advanced Auto do the intended job. I cannot attest to them lasting years, but so far so good. I have purchased other batteries from Advanced Auto and have never ad an issue. The pricesare hard to beat and the performance has been good so far. Advanced Auto is my first stop for batteries!

                    I purchased this battery in 2015. Everything I've read on this site indicates that it is a "sealed, maintenance-free" battery. But the caps on my battery are removable. Question: do I need to top off the fluid level in my battery or should I just leave that alone? If it needs filling, to what level should it be filled?

                      Hi John, glad to assist you! If the battery is labeled as "maintenance free," it is not designed to be opened. Manufacturers advise that water cannot be added to these batteries, they simply need to be replaced if they stop working well.

                    • CUSTOMER CARE

                      A:

                      Hi Craig, happy to help you! There is no direct correlation between CCA and amp-hours, because starting batteries are not designed for slow periods of deep discharge. Engine starting batteries are rated in cranking amps. The standard BCI CCA rating is at 0 degs. F (about -18C) whereas Marine Cranking Amps are at 32 degs. F (0 degs.C). Engine starting batteries are designed to provide a heavy surge current of as much as 200 amps for a period of 5-10 secs. Deep cycle batteries are generally rated in amp-hours at a C/20 discharge rate, which means 1/20 of the battery capacity for 20 hours until the battery reaches 1.75 volts per cell. Actual capacity will vary with temperature, the size of the load and the rate of discharge. A faster discharge rate or a heavy load which exceeds C/10 reduces the capacity much more quickly. In determining the battery capacity needed good engineering practice is to sum all equipment loads, times operating duty cycle in percent, times a 150 percent safety factor. Deep cycle batteries used in UPS and telecommunication applications are rated in reserve capacity, which is the number of minutes the battery will maintain a constant 25A load at 80 degs. F until voltage drops to 1.75 volts per cell. To provide an approximate conversion to amp-hours, multiply reserve capacity by 0.6. For Ex: A Group 30 Battery rated for 225 minutes RC approximates 135 amp-hours. Assuming a 20% SSB duty cycle, such a battery powers a 100watt HF rig for 12-hour duty shift in typical contest or net control operation including a 50% safety factor.
