Iíve got Gel and AGM batteries which live under the stairs when not in use, charge mine once a month with a CTek charger and once a year do a maintainance charge.
Look on selling pages for solar batteries 👍🏻

Thanks Ian, I'll look into all that.

I was given a new land rover battery years ago that I have used, but its a bit on the heavy side!!

As said lithium is good, just have a read about itís temperature limitations. They donít like it too hot or being charged when too cold.
A leisure type battery can be discharged deeper without damage than a conventional car or truck battery so would be more suitable for you.
If you want something between normal lead acid and lithium price wise, then have a look at AGM batteries.
A leisure agm will be able to be discharged deeper without damage than a conventional flooded lead acid so you could use a slightly smaller capacity and save a bit of weight. Also spill proof which might be useful.

Regarding keeping batteries on charge to prolong life, use a charger that has a maintenance facility
( conditioner) and is not just a trickle charger.

Definitely agree keeping them on trickle change when not in use prolongs battery life

Depends how much you want to spend really.

If money doesn't matter go lithium. loads of options, here and the advantages are massive over lead acid.

If you want to do it at a good cost anything from 50ah-110ah lead acid will be fine.
I always go for 110ah and have one massive 185ah, i fish various different size lakes and the 110ah whilst overkill on some waters, it's what i need on the big ones. The weight and lugging around doesn't bother me.

I usually go for middle priced batteries (£80-£90ish), keep them trickle charge through the months there not used and they will last a long time.

Morning all,

Looking for a battery to power a 44 thrust Minn Kota.

Usage wise it will be used in France for a week for the initial mooch about for spots, placement of marker poles and a bit of bait once a day depending on the catch rate.

Recommendations welcome.

TIA and regards,

Mike
