Recommended Battery to Power an Electric Winch


I have a winch that draws around 55 amps. It will be used to load quads onto a rack in my truck. What are my battery options? Are there any smaller motorcycle type battery that will work? The battery will be used twice in a week and then put on a charger.

You will need a 12 volt battery that is rated for more than 55 amps to power your electric winch. Any battery that meets those requirements should work well for you. For most winches that usually means a car battery. I have included a link to the right with tips on wiring an electric winch.

If you need a good battery charger that will not over charge the battery and will also help recondition and extend the life of the battery I recommend CTEK charger # CTEK56353. I won this charger and it works beautifully.
