THREE EASY STEPS TO CHOOSING YOUR BATTERY

The following shows 3 easy steps to choosing your Exide marine battery however we recommend you talk to your local
Exide dealer by going to our Store Locator

D

Engine + Equipment Need

For boats that require two separate banks of batteries. Battery/ies for engine start and a separate bank for powering equipment

B

Electric Motors

Small crafts using electric motor only relying totally on battery power.

C

Dual Supply

Engine and equipment need: for boats that need one single battery or dual battery or dual battery system to power both engine and electrical equipment.

E

Engine + Equipment + Dual

For boats that require three separate banks of batteries. One for engine start, a second for general power supply, and a third for the likes of winches, emergency, safety and comfort charging needs.

A

Engine Start

(Combustion inboard and outboard motor): Boats requiring engine start with basic accesories

  • Choose your battery requirement - Starting, Dual Purpose, Deep Cycle or a combination thereof
  • Consider the boats space restrictions or battery containers (if any) and ensure the battery measurement complies with your requirement
  • For Starting & Dual Purpose batteries, consider the motor size preferably by Horsepower (HP)
  • Consider your accessories and load by calculating your cycling requirement using the chart below
  • CALCULATE YOUR POWER USAGE
    1. List Electrical Equipment 2. Obtain load in Watts3. Estimate Usage in hours4. Calculate Watt Hours (multiply)

    6. Allowances Add 10% for cable loss +
    Add 25% for over capacity +
    SUB TOTAL Ampere
    7. Match the battery to the AH rating Round up your AH requirement rather than round down & check dimensions

    Dedicated cycling (house) boat batteries should be specified according to the discharge requirement of your marine craft. A larger number of accessories, and/or the length of running time, the more the draw you will encounter and the faster the battery will discharge. The standard cycling rating is Ampere hours specified at a 20hour rate abbreviated in the specification table to AH(20hr). Also be mindful of the size of the cavity or battery box in your boat which may limit your selection. A higher AH battery rating, allows for a longer period of power usage for your electrical accessories before the need to recharge without running your engine. To maximize life of a cycling battery, only discharge to a minimum level as possible (over capacity is good thing), and avoid full discharge of the boat battery at all times.

    Marine Stowaway-Starting

    Basic accessories:

    Standard instruments, 2-way radio

    Cranking/Starting:

    Marine starting range for outboard & inboard motors designed to deliver high power for engine starting also accommodating basic accessory loads. Sealed maintenance free calcium/calcium flooded lead acid battery built with Glass matt separators to resist vibration, carry handle and rugged construction.

    Marine Stowaway AGM Deep Cycle

    Basic accessories:

    Auto Pilot, Electric winch/anchor, trim tabs, fridge

    Cranking/Starting:

    AGM (Absorbed Glass Matt) batteries are different from flooded lead acid because the acid (electrolyte) is held in the sponge-like separators. The separators are woven into mat to increase the active surface area and hold the electrolyte on the cells. AGM battery plates can be flat or rolled and as there is no free flooding of acid, they can operate in any position and can last substantially longer than conventional cycling.

    Marine Stowaway-Dual Purpose

    Basic accessories:

    Bilge pump, GPS, Fish finder, lighting

    Cranking/Starting:

    The sealed dual purpose range is designed to supply power for boats with one battery bank used for both starting and cycling accommodating additional accessories. These are constructed using thicker calcium plates, glass matt separators and have a different active material balancing starting ability with cycling to provide adequate dual purpose power. They must be used in an upright position and are effective in a closed ventilated environment and are generally positioned as an affordable range versus AGM and Gel.

    As a commercial fisherman, recreational fisher, professional game fisherman and now fishing show host – I’ve worked and played on a lot of boats, so I know the importance of reliable gear at sea. Your battery is vital for getting you out there and back safely, and it also powers your electronics and communication. A dead battery could not only ruin your day, it could compromise your safety, so choosing a reliable battery is a no-brainer. I’ve got Exide batteries in both of my boats and they’ve never let me down, and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Exide to any recreational or professional boat owner.
