Tips to extend the life of your Dual Purpose (Starting/Cycling) BCI Group 24M marine battery

  • Off-season battery maintenance will provide extended run time and lifetime for your marine battery.
  • Dual Purpose (Starting/Cycling) BCI Group 24M Marine and Boat batteries work best when the charge is maintained in the battery – do not store the battery in a discharged state. Use a top quality Marine Battery Charger
  • We even offer battery boxes, Rescue Packs and portable power for running accessories, and custom cables to make sure your boat battery is running at top speed
Should I use a Sealed or Flooded battery? Sealed batteries have high energy density, low internal resistance, and are maintenance free, spill proof. Flooded batteries are reliable, power sources with outstanding cost to power ratio. Some flooded batteries can be “watered”, if needed. Your application and maintenance plan will help in proper battery selection.
