Re: favourite marine battery

As 12 volt batteries go the US battery is a good choice. Golf carts are longer lasting though, due to their thicker plates mostly.

In Trojan's line the T-105 will handle more cycles than any of their other 6 volt batteries and from 2 to 5 times as many cycles as any of their 12 volt batteries.

Other brands like Deka/East Penn should be comparable for their 6 volt golf cart batteries
