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.

    Is this a deep cell battery? (not stated) And will it work for a travel trailer?

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Yes, Camp! This Battery - Part No. M24-3 is a deep cycle battery. It is universal and is not application specific. You would have to match one by size to what is on the vehicle that can be fabricated into its place.

      Answered on 9/6/2016 by Solomon from AAP
  • Q:

    Having read through the Customer Q&A, this battery is represented as (1) designed for starting, i.e., not deep cycle, hence a "starting battery", (2) having standard plates, (3) offering a capacity of 800 CCA and 1000 CA, (4) having a reserve capacity of 135 minutes, (5) 5 lb or 12% heavier than a car battery implying greater content, and (6) having automotive and marine terminals. Yet it is designated strictly as a Marine/RV battery, perhaps because the plates are suspended higher for better shock absorption, certainly not a negative in other applications.

    Firstly, if MCA is more appropriate for a marine battery, then are the CCA quoted actually MCA (at 32 F)? If they are indeed MCA, then direct comparison with a car battery is unclear.

    If not, and the quoted 800 CCA are in fact real CCA calculated at the colder 0 F, then why is this battery NOT suitable for automotive use? Based on the specs, it appears superior to its Gold counterpart in every respect, yet it is less costly.
    Asked on 8/25/2016 by Used Car Hunter from Boston, MA

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Happy to help, Used Car Hunter! You are spot on with all your explanations. The basic difference between MCA and CCA is that the same test is done for a new/fully charged 12v battery at 0F and 32F temperatures respectively. A marine battery can be used in automotive applications provided its the correct size. Few mechanics used to compare CCA with MCA with a simple calculation of multiplying/dividing by 0.77. For ex 800 CCA is approximately equal to 1039 MCA. Autocraft Gold is a superior battery which comes with PowerFrame positive grid technology.
