Some uses for Interstate marine batteries include jet skiing and different types of boating. The appropriate battery that is required is determined by the particular watercraft being used and what it is capable of doing.
The two types of batteries that are available for boats are cranking batteries and deep-cycle batteries. Cranking batteries are responsible for starting a boat's engine and powering its computers, pumps and sensors. They use short bursts of energy quickly. A deep-cycle battery powers trolling motors, radios and other accessories on a boat by releasing smaller amounts of power over a longer period of time.
Jet skis require a battery that has extra cranking power to allow for short bursts of movement on the water. The batteries come with a more rigid shell construction to withstand vibration and to provide increased durability.
