With Slipstream's sister company, Hoverstream producing turn-key hovercraft, we've tried a lot of different batteries. But, nothing has impressed us the way these Braille batteries have.
They are truly the ultimate battery for hovercraft.
The 1191 is a little larger than the 904 and good for applications where a bit more reserve capacity is required. This can be due to additional electronics (particularly lighting) or hard to start engines. It is still incredibly light for its output at
only 17 pounds and 1191 pulse cranking amps.
In a traditional lead acid setup, it usually takes a heavy duty truck battery at well over 100 pounds to get that kind of output. Plus, it's still
remarkably small at only 6.88" long x 4" wide x 6.12" tall.
These are sealed AGM batteries, meaning they require no maintenance and can be mounted at any angle with no worry about leaking. Also, AGM batteries last way longer than wet lead acid batteries. While the typical lawn and garden type battery will only last 2 or 3 years, and AGM will easily last 5-10 years, meaning it costs less in the long run. Also, AGM batteries have an extremely low self discharge rate, so unlike a lead acid battery, you can leave it sit for months and it won't be dead when you come back.
Braille batteries are the choice of most professional auto racing teams and are the exclusive battery for IndyCar.

The B14115 is recommended for 4-cyl, 6-cyl and 8-cyl engines, where the vehicle is for track use or 4-cyl street use with weight reduction as the primary goal. It has ample cranking amps for any engine typically used in a hovercraft.
