What is a CCA Rating?

CCA (Cold Cranking Amperes is the measurement of the current in amperes that a fully charged new battery can deliver for 30 seconds (at -18 degrees celsius) and maintain a terminal voltage of 1.2 volts per cell or more (under load). In breif, the higher the CCA, the more the engines cranking ability.

What is an Amp Hour Rating?

An Amp Hour Rating is dependant on the time which is specified. Eg: A new battery with a 20 amp hour rating will deliver a minimum of 1.75 volts per cell over a 20 hour period at 25 degrees celsius. This described as "Amp Hours".

To select the correct deep cycle battery with an amp hour rating for your specific use, you should concider the hours of use before the battery must be recharged and the amount of power or watts for each piece of electrical equipment you are intending to use. This can be done by multiplying by the amount of watts by the hours required and then dividing these by the voltage be it either 6, 8 or 12 volt system to determine the required AH (Amp Hour) required.
