Batteries Shack has the most advanced AGM-sealed batteries in Michigan. We carry a large variety of flooded-AGM & GEL ATV batteries.
We carry primarily Deka batteries for ATVs. After much examination, research, and listening to our customers, we have determined that Deka ATV batteries typically serve our customers the best. They are some of the most advanced AGM-sealed batteries money can buy.
Also, we stick to gel cell batteries and absorbed glass mat (AGM) batteries. These maintenance-free, spill-free, high-performance batteries pack the most punch safely and with minimum hassle.
We carry batteries for all makes and models of ATVs / four-wheelers / quads, including:
The team here at Batteries Shack is always ready to help you choose the right battery for your ATV. However, knowing the jargon in your ATV owner’s manual may use to tell you what you require is also useful. Here are a few to watch out for.
What’s Cold Cranking Amp? Cold cranking amp, or (CCA), is the amount of electricity your battery can produce in freezing weather (zero degrees Fahrenheit). Here in Michigan CCA is an extremely important measure of battery performance. Look for CCAs between 150 and 250 to get the best performance in rough winter weather.
What’s cycle life? It’s the number of charging and discharging cycles a rechargeable battery can go through before it simply can’t be used again. The higher the cycle life, the longer your battery will last. You won’t always find this information listed on battery specs on the shelf or box, but our team will be able to provide you with answers.
Most ATV batteries have a cycle life of 500 to 1200 cycles. Much will depend on how often you use your ATV, but most of our Deka customers find the cycle life of the batteries we sell them is good for up to three years of use, provided the battery is properly charged and taken care of.
Some technical details don’t have much variance. For example, almost every ATV takes a 10-volt battery.
You have the choice of purchasing either a gel battery for your ATV, or an AGM battery. Either can be a high-performance, maintenance-free option. AGM batteries are a little less expensive and offer a slightly shorter cycle life than gel batteries. Gel batteries require a special charger and cost a little more.
Ultimately it comes down to personal preference.
Why not just get any SLA battery of the appropriate size?
ATVs generate a lot of vibration, and ATV batteries are designed to take that level of punishment. ATV batteries also offer protection against extreme temperatures. If you try to use a general-purpose battery in your ATV, you’ll get a much shorter life span out of that battery. You’ll spend more money trying to replace those batteries more often, versus just buying one good, slightly more expensive ATV battery which will serve your sporting efforts for far better and far longer.
You don’t have to become an ATV battery expert to enjoy your sporting vehicle. Just stop by Batteries Shack in Sterling Heights to get help choosing the right battery for your ATV.
