Battery Definitions

CCA – Cold Cranking Amps – The discharge load in amperes which a new, fully chargedbattery can maintain for 30 seconds at 0 degrees farenheit and maintain 7.2volts.

CA – Cranking Amps – The discharge load in amperes which a new, fully charged battery can maintain for 30 seconds at 32 degrees farenheit at a voltage above 7.2volts.

MCA – Marine Cranking Amps – The discharge load in amperes which a new, fully charged battery can maintain for 30 seconds at 32 degrees farenheit at a voltage above 7.2volts.

HCA – Hot Cranking Amps – The discharge load in amperes which a new, fully charged battery can maintain for 30 seconds at 32 degrees farenheit at a voltage above 1.2 v/cell

RC – Reserve Capacity – The number of minutes a battery can be discharged at the specified rate (25, 56 or 75 amps) at 80 degrees farenheit and maintain a voltage above 7.2volts.

AH – Ampere Hour Capacity – A unit of measurement for electron flow or current through an electrical circuit for a certain period of time. The 20 hour rate is a BCI sanctioned rating expressing ampere hours required to achieve an end voltage of 1.75 v/cell at 80 degrees farenheit, and represents the batteries maximum capacity. The 5 hour rate is based on IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) temperature standard of 30 degrees celsius (86 degrees farenheit)
