Thread: Best marine battery for 12v pump?

  1. #11
    Group 29 deep cycle is the same dimensionally as the group 31starting battery. Depending on what brand of battery is where the difference of 29 or 31. There is only 2 major battery manufacturers in the United States. Johnson controls and East Penn manufacturing. The two companies build the batteries to customers desire. Johnson controls make interstate everstart djralast optima autocratic and maybe diehard but not sure on diehard. East Penn makes Deka exide Napa and car carquest commercial batteries and im sure a few other brands. Both make good batteries and both have a few bad ones that slip through .

    Good info Brent. I just traded in a three year old 31 for a 29 ELC at the local Interstate depot.

    I noticed at least one of you use a truck battery, what is the point of using a marine battery - why not any 12v battery, car, truck, MC, ATV?

    I use marine deep cycle. It's for the people that run a dedicated roof pump. You get extended run time with them verses a regular battery.

    Thanks Chris - I just ordered a roof system from Bob and wanted to get a good battery to run it, all kinds of vehicle batteries out there and was wondering why a marine one.

    You can go with a standard battery however, In most cases, they won't last nearly as long as a deep cycle. Standard batteries are not designed for heavy discharge and recharge as which the 12V pumps will cause.

    Marine batteries are made to discharge and recharge like we do. They will hod up better than a regular car battery.
