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.

        The six year old Interstate battery in our pontoon boat died. I've been happy with these batteries, but couldn't locate one quickly. I found an Autocraft battery online at my local Advanced Auto store and a 20% off coupon as well. In that I have had good experiences with Autocraft batteries in the past, I bought it online, drove to the store, and they helped with the install, accepted the ore, and I was on my way in just a few minutes I saved over $30 in the process, and the family had a great time on the lake. It performed fine, but time will tell about its quality and longevity. I like the online purchase, pick up at the store option!

                  This is a marine battery and was purchased as a starter battery for my boat. Installed in July, would not hold charge in spring. Replacement warranty is good for one year, but no pro-rated warranty after that. I expect a battery to work for several years. Received no credit for old battery when I replaced it at 12.5 months.

                      i have used these batteries in my 24' arriva boat that has a 454 cid motor. these batteries have a cca of 800 that is most useful for a large amp draw. the reserve power with these batteries also means i can run additional items like the radio all day without having to worry about having enough juice to start the boat after being on the water all day. the cost of these batteries with discounts accrued make for a very reasonable price paid. only drawback to most marine wet cell batteries is the weight, so you have to keep them anchored down tight so they don't bounce around. lithium batteries would be great in this case.

                        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?

                          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.

                          Happy to help you with your question George! To answer honestly how long the battery will last will vary on the load on the battery. The battery does have a reserve capacity of 135 minutes, so it will put out 25 amps for that time until it drops below 10.5 volts, and the battery will need charging, so keep that in mind.
