Re: favourite marine battery

The latest technology is Lithium Ion batteries - at very high prices currently.

AGM is more affordable and has advantages as well as disadvantages.

Flooded are the most forgiving of charge voltages and mild abuse and also the best value - in particular 6 volt golf cart batteries in series or series/parallel.
The best of these at a reasonable price is Trojan. Rolls/Surrette is the best ignoring price.
