Hey Pelican Ive got a Helix 7 which has a 800aM draw would a 14ah battery hold my FF????
How long do you want it to run without having to recharge?
I think if you are starting out with a new battery and not fishing in really cold or hot conditions you should be able to get 8-12 hrs run time maybe even a little more at first. As you start putting cycles on the battery the performance will eventually start dropping off. A lot of variables will come into play as to how soon this happens.
1) The quality of the battery is important for long life, not all batteries are created equal.
2) How far you discharge each time out is very important, the deeper you discharge the more it affect how many cycles you'll get. Best not to discharge more than 40-50 % ( a 12 volt battery is considered dead at 10 volts)
3) For a lead acid battery it's important not to use it then let it sit in a discharged condition, always top it off asap and use a smart charger for your type of battery so you can leave it connected to keep your battery fully charged.
I've been unable to get a lead acid battery to last more than 10-14 months but I use my battery more than most. I'm currently using a Lithium ion battery and have no plans to ever go back to lead acid. With that said Lithium ion batteries are very expensive.
I've never been good, But I've been Lucky!
I don't Lie or Exaggerate, but sometimes I remember BIG!
