Default Batteries for led's

Just got 4 1000 lumen led's for my boat. What would be the best battery/batteries to use with these. Like what brand, type, etc.

Do you mind sharing what kind of lights you got? I've been wanting some LEDs but not sure how to choose the right ones.

a group 27 or bigger deep cycle battery should do just fine

Sure, just search led flounder lights on ebay and there are several different types. Its amazing how many people out there are making these things. I'm not seeing the ones I got. I should be getting mine in the mail Monday and I'll post a pic.

Yes they are waterproof, so i plan on having them submerged. Academy has 27 group deep cycle batteries for 70 bucks. Thinking about going with that. The lights are 10 watts a piece. Should that be enough battery for 4? Or do i need 2.

Someone on here can convert it for you I'm sure but I think one battery will push 40 watts for many hours.

Yep, that should be plenty of juice. You may want to call the Interstate store in Milton (off Avalon Blvd.). They often have blems or remans for cheap. It's been years, but I got a few from them for like $30-40 and they worked great.

Look at advance auto and buy it on line use the code trt30 and save 30% or trt41 and save $40 off $100

Good info, yea all 4 lights arent even pulling 4 amps when turned on. I may go with a smaller/cheaper deep cycle.
