    It means it'll start a pretty good sized diesel, or a massive petrol. It is a measure of the amount of current it can produce in a very short period under specific conditions.

    Don't take it below 12v and she'll be fine mate!

    Most leisure batteries are rebadged starter batteries anyway.
