ACDelco has been producing batteries for cars, trucks, off-road vehicles and watercraft since 1901. The company name is well known, in part due to their sponsorship of numerous tournaments such as the Bassmaster's Classic, where their marine batteries are featured in every boat. Although several older models are available for use in marine applications, ACDelco's Voyager series is the current line for all your watercraft needs.
The Voyager series features a 12V deep-cycle design that allows it to provide long streams of power for extended periods of time. It's maintenance-free with a 12- or 18-month free replacement warranty, depending on model. The Voyager series undergoes pressure testing to avoid leaks. Special thermoplastic reinforced plates improve durability and protect against plate shorting. The pole type terminals have stainless steel wing nuts. Corrosion resistance is maximized with a lead/calcium alloy on both the positive and negative grids. This also serves to increase cycle life and reduce water consumption.
The Voyager series has four models. The DC31 has a reverse capacity (RC) rating of 165 and a cold cranking amps (CCA) rating of 650. It measures 13 inches long by 6.8 inches wide by 9.4 inches high. It weighs just over 60 pounds and has a list price of $124.95 as of December 2, 2010.
The next model in the Voyager line is the M24MF. This model has an RC rating of 90 and a CCA rating of 40. Cranking amps (CA) are 620. It measures 10.9 inches long by 6.8 inches wide by nine inches high. It weighs 45.5 pounds and has a list price of $94.95 as of December 2, 2010.
