Its not that its a fancy battery,. If you had the right setups for charging and usage it would fit and be cost effecticve to get an AGM. Gel, but you dont so what you decided to get is an appropriate choice.

Also, If you had greater usage needs I would suggest two 6 volt golf carts as the thicker plates allow a much greater number of deep cycle charges thus greater life.

What you have decided is appropriate for your use, just be sure they are deep cycle batteries.
