Re: battery for trolling motor
There are two ways to go cheap/decent and great. Delco is sold at W-mart, and I have two of them. I consider them cheap/decent. Get the largest Deep Cycle that fits your battery box. Do not get just a Marine Battery, that is for starting and will die quick on recharge/discharge.
I use to buy the best. Trojan and Optima are two top brands. Trojan I believe makes the Minnkota batteries. expect to pay $200 up. But they do last longer.
Over the years I foound the best bang for my buck is the D-C Delco Walmart. But in all fairness to the top end batteries, there is a lot of new technoligy in the new Optima batteries, they may be worth the extra $$$.
