Since AAP does not warranty their parts for commercial use their one year printed on the receipt is not worth the paper is printed on.

          Comments about CARQUEST HD Battery Farm and Truck Battery, Group Size 31, 950 CCA:

          This battery replaces the Interstate MTP 65 batteries in my 1999 Dodge Ram 1 ton dually diesel truck. The truck is used in my contracting business and has LOTS of accessories that draw from the batteries. 2800 watts of inverters, air compressor, 13 additional lights, radios/scanners/CBs/computers and lots of little electronics drawing from the batteries. The Interstates, while a good battery, couldn't withstand the demand I was putting on them. After four failures in two years I knew it was time for a change. This battery meets AND exceeds every demand I put on them. I actually had a bad connection on one battery and was pulling off of a single battery for short while, and it still kept me going. Heavier, tougher and much stronger. Had to modify the battery box to get it to fit correctly and had to manufacture a new battery hold down bracket but that was easy and well worth the effort. I now own four more of these batteris to power my other trucks. In the cold mornings the diesel engine never struggles to turn over with these batteries. Highly recommend.

                I shopped around for two new chassis batteries for my diesel motor home and this unit was the best price/deal with all the specs I needed and wanted. Purchased online for in-store pick-up and the experience worked perfectly, including deducting the core charges for my two old batteries when I arrived for the pick-up. Coach is running great and I'm on the road!

                Super heavy and heavy duty. Luckily enough it fits big trucks and farm/excavating equipment so I can use it in more than one piece of equipment if I have to. I've been using batteries from Advance for the last 20+ years sine my dad always relied on them.

                        Hi Mike, happy to assist you! A battery would most definitely take more than 10-15 minutes to charge a dead battery, best to get a battery charger and charge it up overnight (12 hours minimum).

                    • Q:

                      How can two batteries, with the same, or nearly the same reserve minute ratings, have widely differing Ampere-hour ratings?

                        A:

                        Hi MH, Sorry for the confusion on two different answers. Both answers are correct considering the time of manufacturing. 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.

                        Hi Caveman, I'm glad to assist you! This CARQUEST HD Battery Farm and Truck Battery, Group Size 31, 950 CCA (Part No. 31S30) is a maintenance free battery. The maintenance free batteries are technically designed to work without adding distilled water for the period of the warranty. So, the battery cell ports can not be opened for checking the water level.

                        I'm happy to help, Heavy D! The reserve capacity of this battery is 195 minutes and the amp hours are 81.25. This battery is not a deep cycle or dual purpose battery and being used in this fashion may reduce the usable life of the battery. I suggest an AGM or Optima Yellow-Top or Blue-Top spiral cell battery to achieve optimal performance.
