Group 24 Battery Box Specs
All standard group 24 batteries and their sub-groups are the same sizes except for the group 24F battery which is slightly larger. This group 24 battery box is made to fit both group 24 and group 24F, including all batteries that measure up to 10-3/8″L x 7″W x 9-1/2″H. Please measure your battery before ordering to make sure it will fit.
This battery box is designed to fit all group 24 auto, marine, and RV batteries. This rugged battery box is impact-resistant and will give years of great protection for your battery. All of our battery box covers have built-in vent channels to allow battery gases to escape.
This group 24 battery box is made of heavy-duty polypropylene. Therefore it will not be harmed by battery acid, oil, gasoline, and other harsh liquids. It includes a hold-down strap and a mounting hardware kit. All of our battery boxes are made in the USA at our factory in Ohio.
We also make other battery boxes that will fit 6-volt, group U1, and group 27 batteries. Our large adjustable battery box will fit any group 24, group 27, group 29, or group 31 battery.

Battery Box History
In the past, the term “battery box” was used to refer to a battery case, the outer shell of the battery that contains the lead plates and battery acid. In the last few years, much progress has been made in the process of manufacturing battery boxes. As time went by, improvements were made to reduce the high cost of molding these containers. The high cost was due to the high number of rejects caused by uneven and non-uniform wall thickness. The lack of precision that existed in the tooling was required because the tooling press was heated to vulcanize the rubber. In order for the sliding parts to work in a high-heat setting, it was vital to design them with a fixed gap between them. Of course, this caused many battery boxes to be scrap which could not be used and had to be thrown out.
In 1949, C. L. Gougler improved this process with his new press for molding battery boxes. Over the last few years, many other improvements have been made resulting in the modern battery boxes which are made now. The term “battery box” no longer refers to the outer part of the battery itself. What used to be called a battery box is now called a battery jar. Instead, that term now refers to a separate container or “box” that houses the entire battery, including group size 24 batteries.
