Deep Cycle Trolling Motor Battery Optima 8016-103
|Product Name:||Optima Batteries 8016-103 D34M BlueTop Starting and Deep Cycle Marine Battery|
Why we like the Optima Batteries 8016-103 D34M BlueTop Starting and Deep Cycle Marine Battery?
As you might infer from reading the name, the 8016-103 D34M BlueTop is a deep cycle trolling motor battery from Optima. This is a real heavy-duty piece of equipment, in more senses than one. It can be mounted in virtually any position, and it will withstand any shock or vibration you can dish out (well, that the motor can dish out, at any rate). It’s spill-proof and pretty much maintenance-free, and its blue top (hence the name, obviously) indicates that it really comes into its own for marine applications, as well as RV’s, provided the battery’s sole purpose is starting the engine.
To continue, the battery holds enough charge for a good two hours of constant high performance without a hitch. If you use it sparingly, you could squeeze out eight whole hours with a 50-pound thrust trolling motor. While we’re on the subject of numbers, it’s important to note that the BlueTop comes with a 750 CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) capacity (how much it supplies in short burst), or 55AH, to keep it consistent (how much total until it busts).
The battery measures some 10 x 6.87 x 7.81 inches (L x W x H) and weighs in at a substantial 43.5 pounds, which puts it in the “too much hassle to carry for long distances” category. On the flipside, it does come with an almost unparalleled 2-year warranty.
Final Thoughts On This Deep Cycle Trolling Motor Battery;
Up to 3x more recharges than other marine batteries is something to consider. Granted this is not the cheapest product out on the market but it is still very good value. Works equally as well as either a RV battery or boat battery. Oh, did we also mention the 2 year warranty with this beauty ? Yes I know we did, but we just wanted to make sure you hadn’t overlooked that important point.Here's Where To Order The Optima Batteries 8016-103 D34M BlueTop.
