Re: What battery should I buy?

I would suggest flooded batteries as they are the best value and can last as long or longer than Agm batteries which can easily cost twice as much. This assumes that you have good access for the 5 minutes of maintenance required each month or so. The best value is 2 golf carts in series for the house bank and a group 27 for starting.
