It's not even cold cranking amps. CCA for that battery is either 1150 or 1420, they publish both specs in two different places so who knows which one is true. CCA is the amount of current the battery can supply for 30 seconds at 0 degrees Fahrenheit without dropping below 7.2 Volts. This is really meaningless in a boat since not many of us are out at 0F and most of us are interested in capacity rather than max current. The 2250 number seems to be some kind of non industry standard measurement of 5 second max current.

I quickly lose confidence in a company that publishes 2 different specs for the same battery and uses non-industry standards to potentially mislead customers. They say that it can withstand 400 full discharge cycles this would be great if it is true.
