Features of a Deep Cycle Marine Battery

  1. 1. Features of a Deep Cycle Marine Battery
  2. 2. A deep cycle marine battery is designed to use up much of its energy. This is unlike most car batteries which are primarily used to start up the car. After this, the alternator’s job is to recharge the battery. The deep cycle is meant for heavy duty loads such as boats and Recreational Vehicles (RV). The dual purpose of the deep cycle can serve to power the vehicle as well as small electronic device usage. These devices will be needed when the vehicle will be used for any extended period of time. While a deep cycle battery is intended to use up most of its power, it is done so at a steady pace. This makes it last a longer period of time. It stores a large quantity of energy when compared to a starter battery.
  3. 3. A key component when considering a deep cycle battery is to know what the reserve capacity is going to be. This basically means how long the battery will last on continuous draw at whatever output your motor uses. This will be important to know when a recharge of the battery will be needed. As an aside, a recharger will be needed for the deep cycle battery. This unit is purchased separately.
  4. 4. Deep cycle batteries are usually more reliable than the starter type batteries. They need to power heavy machinery or vehicles. Vehicles such as boats and RV’s are often going to be in the middle of nowhere such as camping trips or long fishing trips. Therefore, reliability is a key component of choosing this battery. The reserve capacity rating will give you the amount of minutes that your battery is capable of running at full draw. Although this will depend on the amps of what you are powering. The rating is based on a motor or device that is powered at 25 amps. If your motor is different than you will need to make sure to adjust accordingly.
  5. 5. Another great feature of deep cycle batteries is that they are relatively inexpensive. Depending on the type that you buy you can easily pick one up for under $100. There are solar models that recharge themselves but they are more expensive. However, you will not need to purchase a separate recharger when you buy one of these. Also, the solar models are more ecologically friendly. With that in mind, choosing this type of battery can not only power your boat but can help reduce waste to the environment.
