CCA is the maximum amperes that can be continuously removed from a battery for 30 seconds at 0F before its voltage drops to unusable levels. A 550 CCA battery can supply 550 amperes for 30 seconds at 0F. This rating is only useful in the selection of engine starting batteries.

CA is the same except it is measured at 3
0F

The 15 lb Braille has a 21 amp hour rating compared to the stock battery's 80 amp hour rating. So the 15 lb battery has roughly 1/4 the capacity of the stock battery.

About $180 on ebay.
