Re: favourite marine battery

Unlike anchors, you can't simply swap one type for another (flooded, gel, agm) There are alternator, charger, wiring, regulator issues. It gives me a headache. Some swaps would ruin the batteries, others would ruin the alternator, if you don't get these right.

Also, what is most important? Longevity, deep cycling, max amp hrs, winter storage, maintenance, etc. My headache is coming back.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
