battery for portable fish house?

Recommended Posts

I want something bigger then a vexilar battery for the lighting in my fish house and possibly will have a power plug wired in to run my vexilar, and a cigarette socket for a portable 12 volt tv now and then. Quite a few options of mid sized 12 volt batteries. Seems like lawnmower and and jetski batteries are the fairest priced while atv and motorcycle batteries are twice the price. Maybe im wrong on the pricing but thats just what I have seen with a quick google search.

What type of mid sized battery would you suggest? I dont understand what makes any of theese batteries better then the other besides having more amps. Are certain types of batteries/models going to work better for the the type of lighting and powering situation I have?

I would look into a sealed battery, you don't want acid on your portable tarp. That being said I would look into an electric wheel chair battery, I know NAPA sells them and it's going to be about 1/2 the size of a car battery.

I've also been considering getting an AGM battery for ice fishing but they cost about 70. They also make lithium batteries that are much smaller than AGM and lead acid but they cost 120 and up depending on amp hours also lithium doesn't give you any warning when they are fully discharged they are instantly over as they have voltage monitoring and they also require a special charger.
