Deep Cycle Battery

8 posts in this topic

I need to buy a new deep cycle and was hoping to spend under around $80ish or less. Any recommendations for this price range?

Thanks

Fl-et f-rm sells quality deep cycle batteries for about $75.00

The thing to watch for is the reserve capacity or number of reserve minutes. Less expensive batteries usually don't last as long because they have less lead in them ---- that's why they're not as expensive. Walmart is a great place to find less expensive batteries --- they're lightweight too --- but they don't have as much capacity as many others. Just something to be aware of when you're shopping.

If your willing to bump your budget to around $100 Interstate makes a good battery.

That's why i suggested the batteries at fl-et f-rm. Alot of reserve capacity and very heavy. I have been using them for the last 10 years. I guess you are not familiar with them judging by your posting.

--------GREAT BATTERY FOR THE MONEY.

Should I expect to get more from a CCA 675 MMA 850 from Wlmrt (Ever Start) than from an Interstate CCA 600 MMA 750 from Gnder? Does brand have much difference or is it mostly in the CCA and MMA numbers?

My Exide Stowaway has been a good choice.

Edit: Okay, I just noticed you're talking about CCA therefore, you're not talking about deep-cycle batteries anymore, you're talking about dual-purpose or cranking batteries.

A deep-cycle will not usually have a CCA rating because they are not designed to crank engines.

    • When you rip up the floor, do you only need  replace the foam if it's wet? Also am I going to have to take out the consoles and windshield. I'm assuming I'll have to....Thinking of starting the project in the next month or so.
    • Not going to worry about much until later in the season, we know they can't stay crazy hot forever and slumps will happen, just as long as they are too long I will be happy. I just want them playing really well down the stretch.

    • I've said for years that he needs to wear a helmet, but it was for entirely different reasons.
    • I think that is talking about painkillers etc.      Likely he is taking stuff like statins and blood pressure meds as a minimum.  And he had some depression issues, as I recall, so perhaps something for that.     I saw a thing on TV that said it could have been a vasovagal syncope.  Basically you pass out due to stress.
