I want to find which cars a particular battery (24F - 750 cold cranking amps, 925 cranking amps) is compatible with. How can I look this up?

  • Many thousands of different cars can use a 24F battery, and tractors, and trucks, and motorboats, and airport tugs, and man-lifts, and forklifts, and nobody knows how many other types of equipment. I'm not sure anyone maintains such a list, since it'd be so huge and various and always guaranteed incomplete. Do you have a particular reason for asking, or are you just curious? Aug 18 '14 at 17:22

    If you can find an automotive battery application guide in spreadsheet format, just sort by battery type and there's your answer.

  • Paul - Obviously. My question isn't about sorting, it's about getting the data. :)

  • Could you be more specific about why you're asking? What's the specific problem that you're trying to solve? Or are you just curious?

  • Hi Matt - the way it works is that all cars are compatible except those that specifically list otherwise (for reasons of size, extra current requirements etc) so there is no list held (as far as I am aware) for which cars a particular battery is compatible with. Just no need for one.

The short answer is a lot

You can look in this battery guide (PDF), and use control + F to find the 292 instances of 24F in the application guide.


The manufacturer of the battery you have will almost certainly have a web site with all the technical information on it. Usually though when you have a particular vehicle or piece of plant you look up the battery for it, the opposite way round to what you are asking.
