Not to hijack this or anyting but thanks for posting that....

I often find folks in house battery threads talking about CCA (which is meaningless when it comes to house batteries)

I used to have one of those AGM Jump start packs, you know the kind which is a plastic box often with a couple 12 volt outleets and a pair of short cables on it, I could jump 3-5 cars between charges.

It too was 1,000 CCA 27 amp hours but 1,000 CCA

This actually has no bearing on this thread at all save.

Those things are dang handy,, I suggest at least 750 peak Amps, with 900-1000 recommended. (if not more) I use them for many things.

Home is where I park it!
