START batteries have been developed to deliver a high starting current. They are normally used as the power supply for starting boats with standard equipment, but also as part of a battery installation in boats with a lot of electrical equipment. For this sort of use, the batteries are kept fully charged, as the generator rapidly recharges them while running. Batteries recommended for starting have good performance and long service life. The START range has been developed to meet the starting needs of all types of boat engines.
Figures for marine starting power are stated in MCA (current) and are measured at 0°C
