Iím thinking of Samís Club (East Penn) 31M batts
for my Minn Kota Fortrex 80lb 24V trolling motor.
But Iím also looking for a good AGM batt choice for a cranking/accessories batt and I have an Evinrude ETEC 150 HO.
I did go buy 2 Samís Club (East Penn) 31M batts
for my trolling motor. Now after doing some reading, it seems like that same battery would make a good cranking battery as well.
The Evinrude ETEC 150 manual says Battery, Minimum: 675 CCA (845 MCA) 12V or 800 CCA (1,000 MCA) below 32 degrees F and the specs for this battery is 800 CCA (1,000 MCA). The Sam's Club Duracell 31DTMAGM battery is made by East Penn Mfg. (Deka Intimidator 8A31DTM)
. Sam's price was $179.82 when I bought these on 5/18/18 and an AGM group 31 battery anywhere else I've seen is well over $200 and some places over $300.
The olds TM batts I had were wet cell Interstate SRM-27 and I have to install new battery trays because the old ones are too short for the group 31 batts. So I haven't actually used them yet, but I have no doubt they will be really good batts at a really good price!
