I don't have a favorite I just go to a junkyard and buy one for about $15.00 whenever I need one.

I've always used Interstate batteries. I usually get three years out of a deep cycle battery.

I've only used a deep cycle from walmart, not sure of the brand, but so far I like it.

Re: What Is Your Favorite Brand Of Battery???

I use wal-mart batteries now. I used a couple different brands, and for the cost difference the value isn't there. I get 3-4 years out of a wal-mart battery. It it worth 50% more to get one more year?

My dad however won't use them even though he works at one and get a discount. He swears by ac/delco. His 84 tracker came with a delco cranking battery when new. He replaced it last year. I told him he should write to them, and they would probably give him a new one and a commercial deal. He bought a new ac/delco deep cycle from the GM dealer 4-5 years ago, and it's still going strong. He did pay a mint for it though.

Autozone's brand has worked well for me. I tried an optima a few years ago, and it quit shortly after the warranty expired...total waste of money.

I will not and refuse to buy an Optima battery. Cabela's wants $280 for one! I have a 92 Tracker TX-17, been using Interstate since. Does anybody use Deka or East Penn brands? I just got a good deal on a cranking battery from them through my work. Looking to try their deep cycle. Factory seconds, only a exterior blemish.
