Recondioned batteries

Postby no3topqb » Fri Jan 10, 2014 11:37 am

Any body ever use a reconditioned battery? If so, how do they last compared to new ones? A guy at work has some that are interstate deep cycle for $60. I was thinking of getting a couple just to have a couple extras in the boat... any input is appreciated.

I've used them in lawnmowers. they go in clean the crud off the cells and add new fluid. They will be fine for backups. You should be good

Thanks. I was mainly thinking of using it for running a mallard machine. Then not to mention just an extra for "just in case"...

And I didn't think the price was that bad either...

I'm not sure. I looked at them this morning and the labels have been pulled off. I'll look a little closer this afternoon...

Srm-24=10" Srm-27= 12" Srm-29=13" long - all about the same height and width.

To age the battery look at the # stamped on the side of top rim on the battery. first digit a number say 2= 2012 second digit a letter ABCDE ect. A= jan B=feb c=mar ect. If it is more than 2 years old I would not buy used. unless its a SRM 29 they will last 5-7 years others only 2-4 years. And that's from new. If the # has been melted out and a 2nd # was stamped that means it sat on shelf for more than 1 year when new.
