Tractor Battery For Electronics

Recommended Posts

I have been curious as to whether or not a tractor battery would run two smaller units.  I have a Helix 5 and a small B&W Lowrance. They are fairly cheap and I didn't want to be sucking down all of my cranking battery while I am graphing or fishing.  Just curious.

More than likely it would work depending on what size it is.  Is it from a regular tractor or a lawn tractor?

i am not sure on the size of cranking battery but i do know that a 12AH battery that i have for my helix 5 SI will also two full day outings pretty much.  My point is i doubt that they will pull enough to worry about the draw on your cranking battery.

I agree with flyfisher, as long as your cranking battery is in healthy condition it will be fine to run them as well.

My dad left his Lowrance Elite on one time for a whole week and it never killed the battery to the point that we couldn't start the engine
