BCI Group 24 batteries are very popular automotive, industry and marine batteries, commonly used as starting, deep cycle and general purpose batteries.
While they feature standard dimensions, these batteries differ internally significantly, offering the users different characteristics regarding nominal capacity, starting features, number of cycles and similar.
