My guess is that they came from a battery maintenace change of a UPS system. Note the bolt torque instructions.

They are just lead/acid batteries like most common deep cycle batteries.

The batteries are probably actually made in Japan

I would also guess that their amp capactity to be quite low for trolling motor use.

Google is as Google does

Not sure what a group 24 marine battery is but I think I'm ok running maybe a 36 # max trolling motor off two of these hooked in parallel if they are 64 ah.

So charge as deep cycle?

Thank you Wayne and Dougherty.

Both batteries in parallel is 128AH. A rule of thumb is that a 36# 12 volt motor will draw 36 amps.  That  gives you about 3.5 hours of run time on full.

Check out page 70 of this pdf. http://www.utrc2.org/publications/assets/13/hybridbus1.pdf

It looks like it has the same charging requirements as a AGM battery. If your charger has a AGM setting you should be good.

It looks like they used that battery in a Hybrid bus. I think it should handle your trolling motor without a problem.

Dougherty, I don't know how you find this stuff, but thank you very much.  

Google is your friend.

They are also date 2004 so remaining life may be minimal.

I would not be to worried about the age if they where cared for properly. My battery is at least 8 years and it still works fine. But I make sure it if properly maintained.  I know it is older but I can not remember when I go it. But I have had it in my current boat since I bought it, the boat, new in 2000. I used in my previous boat but can not remember for how long. The battery is a ACDelco m27mf.
