Recommended Battery Selection Choice:
The U-1 battery has a square tab with a through hole on top with dimensions of 7.75” long x 5.125” wide x 6.125” tall, specific options are as follows:
- Sealed or Gel Type Battery:
- Designation: U-1 – 12 Volt 30-35 Amp Hour Sealed Maintenance Free Rechargeable Battery.
- This is a good battery for our electric motors as the life of this battery should be longer than the Wet battery thus economically you may be better off. This type battery is meant to be drawn down and then recharged. OR
- Wet Type Battery:
- Designation – U-1 – 12 Volt Garden Tractor Battery BCI Group Number U-1.
- This battery is adequate but may not last as long as the sealed battery noted above. This type battery is meant to always be at a full charge and is more often used for starting gas engine type applications. The cold cranking amp designation applies to starting a gas engine and is NOT applicable to added power in an electric engine.
