So you never charged trolling motor batteries?

Time to replace my starting battery. Trying to find a group 27 with 1000+ MCA is like pulling hen's teeth. Looks like my only real choice is O'Reillys. Optimax manual says 1000 MCA minimum. 24s are easy to find but I want the extra reserve with electronics I run.

All of your battery prayers answered..... I run these in 3 different boats.... NEVER had one run down.

I still have about 100 of these, but they sell really fast.

Great Info in that batteryweb link!!!! thanks for posting this.

The only other Item I wish they'd have included would be "Battery Myths" wherein they could rid of of the 'old wives tale' that setting a battery on concrete will "kill the battery".
It is not true, though it *once was* back in my Grand Pappy's day.
But LOTS of folks still won't let it go.

That link's outdated but I did find your listing. What are the amp-hour ratings of these?

I need to replace my starting battery and looking at AGMs. Are there any issues using an AGM with proper MCA on a Mercury Optimax? I have heard that some automotive alternators do not charge AGMs properly.
