Moeller Roto-Molded Battery Boxes satisfy all USCG requirements.
Our boxes feature lid knockouts to enable easy cable routing to the terminals. We manufacture them from non-corrosive high-strength polyethylene to protect your battery from rust and chemicals. Our battery boxes contain anywhere from one 4D through two 8D batteries, and are available in a range of sizes. They feature seamless bottom construction and a nominal wall thickness of 0.185 in. (4.7 mm).
