Default Extra battery in bagwell

So what’s the consensus for securing an extra marine battery for running a stereo and other accessories?

Basic marine battery case?

How do you secure box to bagwell, bolt and nut through the body?

I have my extra battery under the seat on the drivers side, secured by a small ratchet strap. My bagwell has 2 6v batteries for my 48v setup, they are secured by a custom built hold down bracket bolted through the bagwell. So yes a battery box secured through the bagwell would work fine IMO.

Check out the lithium 12v tractor batteries from autozone. I had one for my stereo and it worked great. Lasted about 3 hours on a charge. Typical lawn tractor size and weighs 4lb. Also can be mounted at any angle giving you more mounting options

Hooking them up in series would give you 24 volts. You don't want that.

I see most of those lithium batteries from Advance are around 260 CCA. I wonder if they could handle the amps needed for using a winch? The atv winch I would be looking at pulls 180 amps at full load. I wonder how CCA converts to that?

IIRC the one I had was about 350cca, it was the biggest one they had about the size of a typical riding mower battery. My stereo was about a 20-25 amp constant load and it lasted around 2.5-3 hours on a charge without the built in meter getting to the danger zone. I never actually timed it to get an exact number, but thatís in the ballpark.

I donít know how the conversion works from cca to ah, or even if there is one to be honest. I tried finding out the overall capacity when I bought it to get an idea how long it would last on a charge and couldnít find anything. Iíd imagine that the winch only pulls full load for a short time just to break the initial suction from the mud and then drops significantly. So it would probably be enough to get you out a couple times. ATVís have a smaller battery and winches work on them without an issue. So the other question is how often do you get stuck?
