I just purchased two Duracell 12 volt deep cycle marine batteries from Batteries Plus. I needed two to rig up a 24 volt system to power my trolling motor. So far so good. I've run the the motor 6-8 hours and the batteries are still running strong without a recharge.

Great batteries...have them for my cranking and trolling motor batteries.

You can get the same battery for less money and less warranty at Sam's Club.

The batteries + one has like 1-2 more years than the Sam's 18 month warranty.

Duracell 31 series at Sam's is $179.00 personally think it's the best deal going.
used them for over 4 years on cranking and T-motor without issues!!
if i remember right, someone said they were made by Deka !


I love the smell of 2 stroke in the morning !!!

I have a Group 27 Dual Purpose as my Cranker. Bought at Batteries Plus. What I liked about buying there is they threw a load test on the battery before I walked out the door. Really great service. Have 27 series TM batteries too.

Would buy there again for sure. They are made my East Penn.

I have 3 Duracell batteries I have used for the past 4 years. The two trolling motor batteries are now showing signs of losing capacity. One thing that bothers me is that I have to refill battery water about once a month during the summer. The charge was maintained by a 3 bank charger in my boat.

Walmart has marine deep cycle Everstart 27 series for $90 each with 1 year warranty. According to the description: "Battery is maintenance free under normal operating conditions".

If anyone knows what this claim means, or has any experience with Everstart batteries, I would appreciate comments.

Thanks--

Have a friend in Amarillo that has run Walmart Everlast for years. The advantage there if one goes bad, there is a Wal Mart in almost every decent sized town to do an exchange.
