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 recharging time is listed below.
Recharging time is based upon the amount of discharge, thus a person must determine the amount of discharge of a battery and the recharge rate of their charger to calculate the amount of time that is necessary to recharge their battery. If battery is totally discharged it should be charged for 8 to 12 hours (overnight). If the customer has used the battery for only a couple of hours and wants to be assured of having a fully charged battery, charge for only about an hour.
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.

can this be charged with a standard battery charger
A standard battery charger should not be used with the Cabela's Rechargeable 12-Volt Batteries. Standard battery chargers output too many amps for this size of battery and can cause damage to the battery.
I have used a standard battery charger set a the lowest (2 amp) charging setting without problems. It's probably a good idea to use a better charger than what is included with the battery because the charger that is included is very basic and doesn't shut off after charging.
