Batterys?

4 posts in this topic

I have to find a new battery for my trolling motor. I have a minn koda endra 44lb 12v. I want to know...how big of a battery i should get? and i want to know where can I find a good cheap battery. I really don't need anything really but I am pushing a 14' boat. and I only go out for about 3-4 hours at a time and fish. after that I go home and put my battery on the charger.

Look for the highest reserve cranking and cold cranking amps. I like Delco 1150 batteries, they are 850 cca. the one reason that i say this is that they are a true deep cycle battery, not marine grade but will take the on and off of the charger the best. The boat guys probably have a different "marine" battery they use but if it is in a box, and you have it set up for a charger, i would go for it. I would not go "cheap" as you get just that, mostly a remanufactured battery that may last year or might last 19 minutes. Good luck.

the Wal-mart ones are made by exide, just labeled differently, and are about $30 cheaper than the exide labeled batteries. I have bought them in the past and have had no trouble with them, they have lasted several years. I figure I can get 3 of them for the price of some of the others out there.
