I need to buy a new battery for my boat and I see that the Cabelas AGM Battery is on sale. I am not sure if there is anything special about this battery, but it’s on sale so that brings it to the top of my list. Something else I noticed while surfing the Cabelas website was that the AGM battery gets mostly great reviews. Since this battery is the only thing that is going to power my boat, I need to make sure this battery is a winner.
Cabela’s Advanced Angler AGM Batteries
Cabelas AGM Battery Description
- Leakproof, vibration- and impact-resistant design
- Dual purpose for deep cycle or cranking applications
- High charge retention and super-long life span
- Dual posts (some models)
Taken directly from the description on the Cabelas site:
The next generation of dual-post lead-acid batteries, our revolutionary Advanced Anglers series uses a separator similar to fiberglass to hold the electrolyte in place. This physical bond between the separator fibers, the lead plates and the container completely eliminates leaks and makes these some of the most vibration- and impact-resistant batteries on the market. These completely maintenance-free batteries also serve double duty on the water, serving as either a cranking battery or a deep-cycle power source. In testing, this design lasted through up to 600 drain/charge cycles, giving it a life span far surpassing conventional batteries. Includes one threaded post (wing nuts included). Meets all EPA/OSHA marine requirements. FAA and DOT approved. Cabela’s return policy applies.
Weighing in at 60 Lbs. makes it one heavy battery. Could I get away with a lighter one? Possibly. The one that’s on sale is the single post 27, but it’s almost $80 cheaper. What do you think? Should I take the plunge or buy something else?
