Members Tips - Keeping your Marine Batteries Alive  

Marine Batteries are an important part of any boats electrical systems. As poor service and maintenance can lead to failing batteries we have included below a few suggestions on ways that can help to keep your batteries alive and well;

  • Don't mix battery chemistry - Always use the same battery types
  • Shallow discharges lead to a longer battery life
  • 80% discharge is the maximum safe discharge for deep-cycle batteries
  • Don't leave batteries deeply discharged for any length of time
  • Leaving batteries in a discharged state will cause sulfide damage and lower their capacity and overall life span
  • Charge batteries after each use
  • Never mix old batteries with new batteries on the same charging system
  • Keep batteries in acid-proof storage boxes secured with tie downs
  • Maintain fluid levels in wet-cell batteries
  • All Batteries can gas - Make sure they are installed in a ventilated area
