Q & A

Battery size

I have been offered a good deal on a 12v 115AH starter battery. Can this be used to replace a 12v 110AH battery without any charging issues? The narrowboat is a 60ft Aqualine Madison. Thank You

If you are using the 115Ah as a starter battery there is no issue. Going smaller would potentially cause issues (with less cold cranking amps available in winter, for example. Also, obviously, a starter battery is not suitable for use on the domestic side, as it is designed to give high currents for short periods- the opposite of what a leisure battery does!
