Get Wired!

Fishing season is coming up soon and when it comes time to drop your boat back in the water, will you have your batteries wired up correctly?  OPTIMA-sponsored angler, Scott Duncan, was nice enough to put together this video, which explains how to properly wire BlueTop marine batteries for 24-volt and 36-volt trolling motors.


You'll notice the BlueTops Scott is using have light-gray cases.  The light-gray cases indicate these batteries are designed for both starting and deep-cycle use.  If you are using batteries for trolling motors, be sure they are designed for deep-cycle use. The only BlueTops not designed for deep-cycle use are our 34M BlueTops, which are easy to spot, because they have dark-gray cases.

It is also important to make sure any batteries you use in a 24-volt or 36-volt system are identical in age, size and type.  Have fun on the water this year and be sure to catch some big ones for us!
