Jetski Batteries for Sea Doo & Yamaha PWC's
Your Jetski Battery is a very important component on bothYamaha & Sea Doo models. Why? because if it fails you are in BIG trouble!
Whilst Jetski Batteries are generally reliable, lead acid Batteries have been around for a long time and even when they are new they can fail. It makes sense to keep them in the best condition possible by using a Battery Float Charger or an Intelligent Battery Charger.
Before any holiday or fishing trip and especially after a prolonged storage time I would recommend having the Battery tested. I use a Bosch Battery Tester which prints out a report and tells you the condition of the Battery and may save a breakdown out at sea. As a guide your Battery should be 12.6 volts which means it is fully charged. That doesnt mean that the Battery isn't faulty it just means it's fully charged! A much better option in fact I wouldn't recommend you go out to Sea without one is to fit a Jetski Dual Battery System. View our Dual Battery Systems here Jetski Dual Battery Systems and Components
Jet Ski Battery Maintenance
- Make sure you regularly check your Battery is topped up to the required level if it is not a Sealed Battery.
- Check the Jetski Battery Terminals are clean and the Terminals are secure. If not clean and add some Di Electric Grease to protect the Terminals from corrosion.
- Check for any physical cracks or damage. If found replace the Jetski Battery.
- Check the current state of your Battery with a Volt Meter or Battery Tester. If you don't have the necessary equipment consult a Jetski specialist.
- When you are storing your Jetski for extended periods take off the Battery Earth Lead or switch off both Batteries if you have a Dual Battery Switch installed.
