Keep your boat afloat with a new marine battery
Your boat is your baby, which is why you spend lots of time making sure it's properly maintained. However, it's sometimes easy to forget about the battery when you're always making sure it's clean and properly tuned. Don't leave yourself out of the water or stranded because of a dead battery. Sears carries a large selection of marine batteries from top brands like Die Hard that fit any kind of boat.
Much like a car battery, the battery in your boat experiences similar malfunctions when it begins to expire. If your boat is having trouble starting up or requires frequent charges, then it's probably time for a new marine battery. If you plan on using your boat's trolling motor to run other accessories, then dual purpose and deep cycle batteries are the best choice. However, a starting battery is perfect if you just plan on taking out your boat to fish or just lounge on the water. Sears carries a wide selection of marine models, starting and trolling motor batteries to power any boat or RV trolling motor.
If you choose a deep cycle marine battery, remember that they are constructed to use up or discharge most of their power. That means you should also find a proper battery charger to fully recharge it. When charging a deep cycle model, remember not to recharge it after only a bit of usage. While you might feel you are giving it maximum power, this method will actually give your marine battery a shallow charge. Make sure you choose the correct boat battery based on how often you use it. That way recharging it properly won't be an issue.
There are specialty marine batteries you can choose as well. Gel cell and absorbed glass mat (AGM) marine models are a great green alternative and are built to last longer than standard boat batteries. Both are sealed tightly to keep electrolyte and any harmful contaminants from leaking and corroding the battery's terminals or connectors. While they tend to be more expensive, gel cell or AGM boat batteries are great long term solution.
Whether you're looking to enjoy downtime at sea or hoping to reel in a couple of big fish, your boat or yacht gives you the peace of mind you deserve. Make sure you have a high quality marine battery to keep your boat running strong. No matter what kind of boating battery you choose, Sears has you covered so your vessel starts performing at its peak again.
