    This battery has served me very well, I would recommend it. I bought this battery 9/2008 for my 115hp Yamaha, it failed to take a charge today, 4/2014. That's just over 5 years of service. Granted I used it lightly, but never charged it over the winter months, in North Florida. I will be buying another tomorrow. Marine cranking amps 625 @ 32 degrees, cold cranking amps 500.

    I use 4 of these batteries in my Travel Trailer hooked up to a 160 watts of Solar, 10 amp Charge controller & 2500 watt inverter (mod sine wav ) . Purchased in May 2012 and still cranking up today6/24/2014. I run my Walmart Mini fridge, Microwave, LED lights and Heat all on these batteries NOT ALL TOGETHER !! but they work fine. The trick to keeping these batts in good shape is to check the water regularly and keep them charged all the time. My Charge controller works like a Battery tender when not under load so i am always at 12.8 trickle charge and 13.8 when charging.

    Thank you for your input, and you are right when you say to keep the batteries in good shape. This will extend the overall life of the battery.

    Used on a pontoon boat and maybe cranked 40 times in a year. When battery was 10 months old, had to charge with remote charger. Battery sat for 2 more months, cranked up fine. One month later tried to crank but battery dead. Would not take charge. Called Walmart in Sebring Fl and clerk said there was only a 90 day warranty, but now I see where there is free replacement for 1 year. Unfortunately because we only use the boat on maybe two weekends a month during the summer our warranty ran out before we could detect the problem. Purchased 3-8-13. Would not buy this battery again.

    I have used this battery for my trolling motor on a 16 FT fiberglass bass boat and it will only last a few hours on the water after less than a year of use.

    Good morning. Thank you for the input. As an FYI we recommend that when you are finished using the battery for the day you put it on a charger with an auto shut off. Keeping the battery as fully charged when not in use will extend the life of the batttery.

    • A. Most Marine applications use a 12 VOLT battery. Now, depending on the CHARGER, it will place 14.5 to 14.75 volts When under FULL CHARGE ( say 10 AMPS) into the Battery. Now think of this : Suppose your BATTERY is drained to 40% of Charge. ? What will the Charger do? A: It will apply 14.25 VOLTS (Because of the Internal Resistance of the Battery) to the full bank of cells, and try to Pump 10 AMPS of CURRENT. Ohm's LAW tells us that POWER=CURRENT X VOLTAGE, so you are going to be putting 140 WATTS of Power into the battery. Aside from the chemical re-combination, this means HEAT!. So your Battery is going to WARM up, as the current flows over time. The Type of CHARGER will determine the MAXIMUM power you can put back into the battery, a 110 A/H (amps per Hour) only relates to the CHARGE CURRENT over time, so this is NOT a valid measure. The TRUE Measure is the INSTANTANEOUS CURRENT, when the Battery is Charging through the begining to the end. It will start High, then taper off , as the battery gets charged up. .... in Batteries, the CHARGE RATE is specified by the BATTERY MFG. Usually 1C or 0.5C (C is the Charge RATE, not Degrees C). So, to recap, YOUR choices of CHARGER are 55A/H or 110 A/H. Great ! Buy the HEAVIER rated (110 A/H) charger, as it will put out LESS HEAT Losses, than the 55A/H one. The second thing is to ONLY CHARGE one Battery at a TIME. As the overall CELL VOLTAGE is what will change as it is getting charged From a LOW of 1.50 Volts to a HIGH of 2.33 (or 10 to14). IF the VOLTAGE is allowed to DROP BELOW 1.5 then the Chemistry will not function as well, and over time the battery will fail (not KEEP a charge). So, Keep in mind the HARDER you charge the BATTERY during the re-charge phase, the SHORTER its LIFESPAN will be, and as a conservative estimate allow 1000 to 1400 cycles of charge / DISCHARGE per the life of the battery. IF you get 2000 cycles out great!, but if you treat the battery by ONLY giving it 0.7 to 0.8 C of Charge per cycle , it will last longer. (than if you gave the FULL 1C) charge rate. The WIRING in your case is in PARALLEL, but I would not do it, because, the FLOAT VOLTAGE of the Charger will compensate for the highest VOLTAGE battery, and the lower batter will get an UNDERCHARGE, relative to its neighbour, and not survive long. IF you have TWO Batteries for your Boat, One for Starting, and the other for Accessories, then get TWO DIFFERENT batteries, and Charge them with the Appropriate charger. A DEEP DISCHARGE Battery for the Accessories, and a regular (like this one ) for the STARTING of the motor. When finished with a day's activities, CHARGE the STARTER Motor at 0.8C and the Deep Discharge at 1/2C rate. (but your CHARGER is what makes the Difference) IF you CAN, get two chargers , the 110A/H for the Starter Battery and the 55A/H one for the Accessories. The TWO chargers will take different TIMEs to re-charge the batteries, but they will be consistantly given the CORRECT Charge for what they need... IMHO. (40+ years with electricity and DC systems, 10+ dealing specifically with batteries).

    • A. You would hook them in parallel, also a regular charger would be ok ,like a 6 to 10 amp, (but the charger depends on how you are going to use the batteries) there is no free lunch, if you use 60 amps for one hour,out of the batteries it will take the charger aprx 10 hours at 6 amps to put it back, also batteries in parallel over time dont reach a full charge, one will reach the charger cut off voltage sooner than the other and will not recieve a full charge, after time (maybe years) it will fail..

    • A. you will want to wire in parallel......... for 12 volts in series you will have 24 v. a 30 or 40 amp charger that is self tapering should be more than enough

    • A. Hi Jeff, Good question, i'm having trouble confirming the voltage of this battery. Series power sources add voltage. Max current is dictated by the lowest rated battery. Parallel power sources add current while keeping the voltage the same. If using 2 6volt batteries to get 12 volts, you need to connect in series, just like putting AA batteries into a remote control. Most chargers don't go up to 55 amp but you should consider something greater than a trickle charger. Hope this helps.
