As 12 volts trolling motor battery products go, this is an ever popular choice. We like this AGM battery, a lot.
This is a powerful Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) deep-cycle battery which is ideal for use on the water. The design seals the power in to a neat case so you can mount it any number of ways (not upside down, though) into your rig. You just need to be sure to install it in a well-ventilated area where it is safe from unexpected contact with other metallic surfaces – we don’t want inadvertent sparks or short circuits when you’re away from the shore! You can mount several of these units together in series or parallel if that is your requirement. But that is quite common for all batteries designed to be used in this type of environment.
As with any Deep-Cycle battery, the BattaMax units are designed to run their power right down then be charged up to the max without long-term deterioration. They usually take some time to build up to full efficiency but after the 10th charge cycle, you’ll be off and running at full capacity.
There are a few special guidelines you need to follow using batteries in wet environments – this is true not just of WindyNation products. Make sure you have a means to keep the battery terminals clean and dry. Apply a thin coat of terminal protector spray to the threaded terminals once you’ve installed the battery – a classic use for WD-40.
The manufacturer recommends a charging unit with a 3-stage controller (Bulk, Absorption and Float) for optimal charging efficiency. This gives a rapid, higher voltage start which then tapers to provide constant top ups at lower energy level. This is ideal for all batteries of this type – nothing unusual there.
This 12 volts trolling motor battery has also been designed not to deteriorate too much if you need to leave it unused for a long period. It’s robust enough to handle the neglect!Here's Where To Order The 12V 100 Amp-Hour AGM SLA Deep Cycle VRLA Battery (ML 12-80)
