What’s a Cranking Battery?
January 4, 2022
There are two methods to measure cranking batteries (commonly called starting engine batteries).
Cold Cranking Amps (CCA): CCA is used to determine the ability for a battery to start an engine in cold temperatures. CCA is measured at -17.8oC. The higher the CCA rating, the greater the starting power of the battery.
Cranking Amp (CA): Measured at 0oC, CA determines the power the battery has to start a vehicle in most climates. Vehicles like boats typically use CA as the temperatures rarely drop below 0 degrees and don't need as much power to start... view post
Battery Switches-Battery switches isolate the potentially destructive energy in the battery banks when the boat is not in use or during emergencies, typically there is a selection on this manual switch between Battery A, Battery B or both.
