Re: Battery Sizing - am I crazy?

I just like to understand things well. And what I'm still missing is what's the downside to the GC's? We've established they have have longer life and more energy per volume...but what are they missing? It's got to be something otherwise these companies are just selling second rate products with "Marine" stamped on them...

They must think thinner plates have some advantage in the marine environment, is it still cranking amps? Are our Duracell Deka deep cycles still designed to provide cranking amps? They are rated for that while the GC's arn't.
