Are All Deep Cycle Batteries Alike?
NO, not all deep-cycle batteries are alike. Unfortunately, you gets what you pays for.
Some "value" buying tips for the non-technical:
1. You are buying Amp-Hours, so compare $/AH = unit cost. If noted, more charging "cycles" are valuable.
2. Weight infers plate size, so buy a heavier battery of same AH rating.
3. Get battery /w "marine terminals".
4. A polypropylene case is good.
Or ignore all of above and buy Trojan/West "T105" (2 if 6V).
