That is exactly what I didcraftsman wrote: ↑Nov 16th, 2018 1:48 pmHaving a higher CCA on a new battery is pretty standard especially if you test the CCA in different conditions. I know, according to the testers, that CCA is the measurement of CA in colder conditions but if the battery isn't cold enough, the only thing a tester can do is approximate what it should be at the current temperatures. Typically warmer ambient temperatures will result in higher CCA measurements.
What I suggest now that you have a brand new battery is to charge the thing FULL and measure the CCA and record the ambient temperature you measured it at and stick it to the battery. That way, you know if you test it later, what the battery was like when it was new and not what is the rated CCA. I would also record the IR number and the voltage as well.
