List of Common Battery Case Sizes by BCI Group Number

Are you looking for a marine, RV, automotive, or solar PV battery? You may have heard common terms like a "group 24 battery" or "type 27 marine battery". These numbers are referring to the BCI Group Number of the battery. These numbers define the physical dimensions of the battery case. This is important as some applications call for specific case sizes. The BCI does not determine the Amp Hours (AH) rating for the batteries, however, but there is a correlation between case size and AH rating. For deep cycle batteries, the larger the case size the more capacity the battery will usually have. For more information about Amp Hours and how it relates to battery capacity, read here. To calculate how much reserve power you need, and thus which battery to use, check out our calculator.
