The Cabela's Rechargeable 12-Volt Batteries do not have an absolute listed range of operating temperatures, though the optimum working temperature is 77 degrees F. Each sustained rise of 15 degrees above that temperature will cut battery life in half. Each decline of 18 degrees F below the average room temperature of 72 degrees F reduces the battery capacity by 10%.
How many items can be hooked to this battery depends entirely on how much amperage they draw. This battery has an 8 amp draw. Typical fishfinders draw anywhere from 250mA to 350 mA so adding another would reduce the time it needed between charges but still work, up to the capacity of the battery.
The Cabela's Rechargeable 12-Volt Battery, Item: IK-018049, can be used in multiple applications where a 12 volt DC battery is required. Replacing a 9 amp hour battery with an 8 amp hour battery would result in a slightly quicker battery discharge than before.
The Cabela's Rechargeable 12-Volt Battery, item # IK-018049, can be used to power a very small inverter with direct to battery clips. However, this is a relatively small capacity battery, so the length of time before it needs to be recharged will not be terribly long.
How much ventilation does this battery require while running?
I am planning to use this battery in my kayak to power a depth finder. The battery will be placed in a watertight container on the inside of the kayak, should I drill ventilation holes in the drybox, or may I use it without drilling extra holes?
My friend do not worry yes you need some ventilation so your battery stays cool. I don't recomend air tight housing because the battery will get hot and the charge may not last as long due to no air circulating. I always leave mind open to the outside air and its find never had no problems.

To prevent overheating we would recommend that the Cabela's Rechargeable 12-Volt Battery is not used in an air tight container.
Yes. I've used it on my 36 lb thrust MinnKota with no problem. I carry a spare just to make sure I have plenty of power on long days on the water. I recharge them at the end of the day and it only takes a couple of hours to restore them to 100%.
