Question Outguessing the Outboard

I have a Nissan 8HP outboard on Wind Angel that I am jsut getting ready to fire up. It is manual/pull start, but has a connection and cables in place for battery hook-up. I confess that I don't know a lot about motors, but can someone please enlighten me as to whay I have a battery connection on a motor with no electric start. Ignition? Charging? IDK

Laguna Windrose 22 "Wind Angel"
