I’m looking for maintenance free deep cycles. I usually buy die hards but they don’t have any listed on their website. Any other suggestions without breaking the bank.

The life of any battery is to keep it topped off when not in use.

Hard to top off a maintenance free battery.

I think he means keeping it topped off in terms of charge, not water.

If it's a lead acid battery, you can add water. Even when it says "maintenance free". Free as in you don't have to pay to add water. Lol. Just use a screwdriver to pop the "maintenance free" cover off. Also, check levels before charging, but ADD AFTER CHARGING. This is to prevent boiling over and making a mess in the boat.

I "think" he means to CHARGE it fully immediately after returning from an outing. It's correct that leaving a battery discharged during storage is a terrible plan. I've known of quite a few people over the years who would put the boat away after use, and not think about charging the batteries until they started getting an urge to go fishing again. They were always needing batteries; wonder why?
