What Are Flooded Starting Batteries

Flooded Starting Batteries are the most popular lead-acid battery type. They often operate under the most extreme temperature conditions and must be able to deliver high cold cranking amps (CCA) consistently. Starting battery failure is most commonly caused by acid stratification, extreme temperatures and destructive vibration. Starting batteries are not designed for regular discharges of more than 1% to 3% Depth of Discharge (DoD).
