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.

    • I prefer Hedley Lamarr    
    •   Lol been making them for years.  Funny you were just able to "get it".  
    •   Yep only you and the club "get it".  
    • He was looking better but then last night happened and it reminded you the last couple seasons have been just bad after a promising start a few years back. Heck I might even swap him for one of the Jets goalies, they all have been terrible but with a competent D they might work in a pinch.
    • D2E learned how to make his own memes, this should be entertaining.

    •   Yes, please. I have no faith in Kuemper even in spot duty. He really does have the talent, but he's too much of a head case. The Francisco Liriano of hockey? Lol. Last night was a dumpster fire (although that fourth goal wasn't his fault, it still rattled him--we can't have that mentality on any level, even if he sees the ice very infrequently).
    • Sounds like we have pretty serious interest in Latavius Murray from Oakland. I'd be all for that. Good runner, decent receiving back, and good pass blocking back. AKA, a complete RB and a 3-down guy. At 27, he's not a super long term solution, but for 2-3 years I'd take swing at him. This draft is solid at RB, so we can draft and develop while Murray and McKinnon hold down the fort.   As for AP, I have so many good memories, and he might even be poised for one of those bounce-back type years where he rips of 1300 and 12 TDs, but I just have to believe that should be done somewhere else. He flat out doesn't fit this offensive style. We need a more well rounded back (Murray or someone like him). Hang up your spurs in Texas, AP. Thanks for the good times.

    • A lot of people don't get the political extremist either, probably more of us leaning away from the parties than people doubling down on them, not to mention the 70 some million that just watch form the sidelines. Just because people actually voted for idiots like Trump & Clinton doesn't mean they were happy to do it. One could even say they were forced into it which all of us really were because of the systems in place. But hey you keep on spinning it any way you'd like.
