Gel cell vs wet cell

3 posts in this topic

Is a gel cell battery worth the extra money?

I want to add a second battery to the back of my boat so I can move the bilge pump, live well pump, locater, and lights to a separate battery so I don't have to worry about enough juice to start the motor.

From what I've heard, a gel cell is lighter and would last a lot longer, just wondering if that's worth the extra money. Or are there more advantages that I don't know about?

Thanks

If size is a determining factor for your application, the gell will be smaller and durable.

But as a back-up a 27 class duel purpose or deep cycle battery would be far more cost effective and still offer all the performance you should need....and cheaper...by a lot.

$200 vrs.....$89...big differance there for a cheap Sweede like me. smile

Thanks Ed, us French are cheap too. grin Can't really see paying that much for what I'm going to be using it for. Think I'll stick with the wet cell.
