Re: 15 AH Deep cycle
A friend has a boat with minimal power demand -- probably less than 3.3 amps (running lights and a Raymarine 435 chartplotter) for no more than two hours. If he had a 15AH battery, this load would only draw the battery down 40%. He keeps his boat on a mooring and schleps the battery ashore to recharge so lighter is better. Any ideas on what to use? Wheel chair battery?
I used to schlep, too, with our Catalina 22. 1983 to 1987.
These days, get a solar panel and controller. Question answered.
