Who's got the best deal on boat batteries? I want to replace 4 in my center console. Mainly need them for starting and running electronics. I din't want to get offshore and have the batteries crap out.
I just replaced my two Walmart Batteries. We did not use them as Trolling batteries. We have a 30 sportcraft with a Volvo Diesel. We run about a 25 AMP load normally during fishing, and about 65 with the DC Air Conditioner on. We had the Walmart Deep cycle enegizers. Paid 90 bucks for them in 2009. Replaced in a pair. They are parallelled 99% of the time. Never had a problem with them, and took them down to 4 to 6 volts three times during their life, opps! Each time, brought them back up with a heavy duty charger. They still worked when i pulled them, but going into the winter I did not want to trust them anymore.I tried Wal-Mart batteries and they last about 1/2 as long for trolling batteries then the Interstate batteries and you only save about 10-15$.
