I've had good luck with Cabelas AGM batteries, hard to beat their price.

I have 2 Optima yellow D31T on my boat for TM. So far they are holding good.
Blue top D31M for the motor and electronics. These batteries were in the boat when I bought it. Don't know how old they are but are at least 3 years old I'm guessing.
If I run both lowrance units, LSS-1 and the 200watt sonic hub playing music (4 speakers) with the motor off it will knock the bluetop voltage down to 11.6 after about an hour. Still has plenty of juice to start the Merc.

The reason I am asking is that those Vmax batteries have a 8-10 life span

I have not used the Pure Lead with 4 yr warranty, I was referencing to the regular Cabelas AGMs with a 2 yr warranty that are on sale now.

I use the Pure Lead AGM batteries that are manufactured by Northstar Battery in Springfield, MO. I have 2 group 31's for TM and 1 group 65 for cranking and accessories. They are about 6 years old and going strong. I also have them in my truck and in my '34 Ford.
