I used this for a old MTD Lawn Mower that had a very narrow battery slot. It worked really well. While selling it it was started maybe 70+ times and the last time it sounded as strong as when it was new!
It comes with the everything needed to fill it including the acid but you will need a slow charger that puts out no more than 2 amps.

Comments about AutoCraft Powersports Battery, 50-N18L-A2, 260 CCA:

A little messy adding the acid - wear gloves. Only add to the min line, let sit before topping off. Charged in about 6 hours with 1.25 amp trickle charger. Works great.

Comments about AutoCraft Powersports Battery, 50-N18L-A2, 260 CCA:

I bought this battery for my lawn tractor with a 16 HP engine. The only reason I rated it 4 stars is because there were no instructions on how to fill it with the acid supplied and to activate it. I found some instructions online to do this safely.

I purchased the same battery and it was completely useless after 11 months. I wouldn't use this battery for a bike that is going to be kept for many seasons.

Bought for a older riding mower. This battery was hard to find. Exactly what I needed. Having to put the battery acid in myself was a negative.

  • Q:

    Does this battery need to be charged before use? If so, what type of charger has to be used and how long it takes to charge the battery?
    Asked on 8/20/2016 by Shu from Winter Haven, FL

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Hi Shu, glad to assist you! Not normally. Car batteries are already fully charged and it should be ready to install and crank it up. You can always check to see how long the battery has been sitting on the rack by looking at the date code on the side of the battery.

      A:

      Sorry, but I will not be able to assist you with that information for your safety. I would recommend taking it to a professional to either do for you or show you in person to avoid any injury. Battery acid is nasty stuff so you have to be extremely careful.

  • Q:

    Re:50-N18L-A2 battery: Mine came with no instructions but I had filled the same model battery before. Although this battery has the same model number it is physically different from my prior 50-N18L-A2 battery. This battery has seven caps instead of the six of the prior battery. Six caps are on one row and the seventh cap is in the middle of the second row. Filling the six caps to the lower level seems to evenly distribute the acid. So when do use seventh cap? Is it for topping off or is it for maintenance?

  • Q:

    Whats the amp hour rating for these batteries?
    Asked on 6/4/2011 by Anonymous

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      CCA is the maximum amperes that can be continuously removed from a battery for 30 seconds at 0°F before its voltage drops to unusable levels. A 550 CCA battery can supply 550 amperes for 30 seconds at 0°F. This rating is only useful in the selection of engine starting batteries.
