I have purchased 5 of these 125AH MAXX-29DC batteries over the last 8 years for use with 1200W 120VAC inverters to power my TV, computer, cable modem, lights, fan and etc. when a storm knocks out the electricity. The oldest one (2003) went bad two years ago when I accidentally let the water get low while it sat on cheap 10A charger for almost a week. The other three (2005, 2007, 2009) are still as strong as the one I bought last week. Four of them will keep everything I need running for a week (except the A/C!). They are a good price for one of the biggest batteries you will find on a shelf around town. Just pay the extra $25 for a smart charger and be sure to check the water level before and after you charge them, or once a month if you trickle charge them. The $6 plastic battery box works great to protect your carpet.

Let's be real about batteries for a minute. Everstart branded batteries sold at Wal-Mart are manufactured by Johnson controls, This is the same company who manufactures batteries for just about all of the "big box" stores as well as most of the discount auto parts stores. Johnson Controls also makes batteries for Interstate battery company, Ford, GM & Chrysler. These batteries are simply re-branded for different retailers. Just because you buy this battery from Wal-mart for $30 less then Interstate does not make it any less of a battery. I usually get about 4 years out of my "Everstart" automotive batteries and at least the same out of my Everstart Deep Cycle batteries. They are a good battery at a decent value. If you guys are only getting 1-2 years out of this battery it's because you have other issues such as leaving your battery hooked up when in storage (parasitic drains) or using the incorrect type of battery maintainer charger causing the water to boil. Read up on battery maintenance before blaming the battery for the real cause.

Ive used these kind of batteries in my boat for several years now. My 2 trolling batteries are five years old and still going strong. They have never let me down yet on the water. Lately ive been trolling for stripers, and some days I will run the trolling motor very hard. Especially in the wind. These two trolling batteries are the second set of Everstart Maxx Marine batteries I have had. The first set was equally as good. I just had to replace my starting battery wich is the same Maxx Marine battery. It was four years old. Last winter the livewell pump was acidentally turned on and ran the battery completely dead and then it went through some very cold weather. If this had not happened the battery would still be going strong. It still lasted another year though. Ive found that if the batteries are kept charged especially in the winter time they will last a long time. I suspect that is the same with all batteries. For the price and the warranty that these batteries carry they are a really good investment. Ive had a total of 6 of these batteries over a long period and they are good as long as they are taken care of like any battery should be.

If you check out bass pro their battery that is one size down costs $249.99 This battery is not maintainence free and as noted needs the water checked every time you charge and if the battery is going to be stored for a long time a trickle charger will help it last for many years. I used a minkota endura 30 on speed level 3 and got 6-7 hours of straigt run time and with 2 batteries I could fish all weekend. The battery at bass pro lasted 18 months this is less then 1/2 the price and has 25% more capacity.

Ive owned this Max marine all purpose battery, as well as the older max all purpose marine and a standard everstart marine deep cycle battery. None of these batteries can be depended on as your primary cranking battery!!! I have learned this the hard way but have found that they are still an excellent value for your deep cycle (trolling motor) purposes. A few years back I bought the largest MAX they had in the store because the advertised CCA / MCA specs and tried to use it. The battery was able to start my 60HP Mercury for only 1 month before I had to start using a jump box and eventually the jump-box was not even effective. Now I rely on an Optima (I am a cheapskate, but this was the best investment I have made in my boat) for my cranking batteries and Everstart for my troller. I am running a 3 battery (1 optima, 1 everstart DC marine, and one MAX) The MAX and the Everstart are isolated to only run accessories and troller. I have a Minn Kota Terrova 55AP and can run it all day and only on the very long days do I have to use the second Everstart. This is my second year now with this system and these batteries have continued to perform their assigned task. The way they are holding a charge right now while they are in storage leads me to believe that I will get one more season out of the Everstart batteries and 2 more seasons out of my optima.

  • A. My minkota endura 30 lasts 6 hours on 3 but on high I only get about 2 or 2 1/2 hours

  • A. MAX-29DC has 125 AH (Amp Hours). If your motor uses 10 Amps, you will get 125AH / 10A = 12.5Hrs. If your motor uses 25A, you will get 125AH / 25A = 5H. But if you always run the battery completely dead (below 10 Volts), it will hold less and go bad sooner. You can use a cheap volt meter to learn the motor sound when the battery is almost at 10V and close to empty.

  • A. How many watts does your motor pull? 125 Amp Hours you use 50% of that to forecast how long your motor will run. So you take 62.5 ampsX12 Volts=750 watts. So if your motor pulls 70 watts....you can comfortably assume your motor will run 10.7 hours before it needs charged.

  • A. It depends on your trolling motor, but typically you can estimate using 1 amp hr per lb of thrust used per hour, so if you have a 30 lb thrust motor, it will use 30 amp hrs per hour. I think this battery is rated 125 amp hrs, so you would get a MAXIMUM of around 4 hrs, assuming full charge and no other draw on the battery.

  • A. The Amp Hour (Ah) is 125 @ 1 amp. The industry standard for measuring battery capacity in Ah is to find the discharge rate that will discharge the battery to 10.5 v in 20 hours and multiply that number by 20. A 125 Ah battery, if discharged at 6.25 amps, would last 20 hours. However, a 125 Ah battery, if discharged at 12.5 amps, would not last 10 hours. A higher discharge rate causes less capacity due to the internal resistance of the battery. A true 125 Ah battery discharged at 1 amp should last much longer than 125 hours. It seems Walmart has deviated from the industry standard to make their batteries appear stronger than they are.

  • A. the 29 series as all are rated at 1 amp per hour. The 29 is rated at 125 hours at 1 amp. so if you use 10 amps per hour it will last 12.5 hours. The reason that they do this is that is only if the drawis constant and does not fluctuate and at 72 degrees. Many variables such as temperature affect the battery, thats why they rate CCA cold Cranking Amps!

  • A. According to the attached label the ratings are : 875 Cranking Amps and 205 amps Reserve Capacity Amp/hour ratings are usually used for batteries under continuous load such as a UPS or an Alarm backup battery.
