Deep Cycle, Dual Purpose, and Starting Marine, Vehicle and Solar Batteries and Chargers
Lead-acid marine batteries are a very important piece of equipment, regardless if you have a small boat that can be pulled out on dry land by hands, or you have large vessel suitable for long off-shore fishing trips.
Today, there are several battery types that are used on fishing boats: Lead Acid batteries, Nickel-Cadmium batteries, Nickel Metal Hydride batteries, Lithium batteries, etc.
Non-lead acid battery types do have their advantages, but so do the lead-acid batteries and they are still the most used marine battery type.

Our latest deep cycle, dual-purpose, starting, and other battery types reviews and recommendations:
Weize YTX14AH-BS is a motorcycle/ATV/Powersports Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) Absorbent Glass Matt (AGM) battery, designed to be spill-proof, maintenance-free starting battery.
Weize YTX14AH-BS features a low self-discharge rate, high cranking Amps, high resistance to vibrations and mechanical impact, etc. and is commonly used as a starting/cranking battery for motorcycles, ATVs, snowmobiles, boats, power generators, and similar units that require small but strong cranking battery.
Renogy 12V 200Ah 'Pure Gel' and 'Hybrid Gel' are large and heavy, deep cycle gel Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) batteries, being able to store large amount of energy.
Renogy 12V 200Ah 'Pure Gel' and 'Hybrid Gel' batteries are suitable for both deep cycle and standby applications with extra long standby life of up to 10-12 years. As such, these batteries are not suitable as starting/cranking for large gas and especially diesel engines, but if required, they both may be used as starting batteries for engines not requiring more than 400-500 Amps.
LR44 and SR44SW are very popular button/coin cell batteries commonly used as batteries in small remotes, as wrist watch batteries, in small toys, LED flashlights, and similar.
LR44 and SR44SW are button/coin cell batteries featuring same physical dimensions, but different chemistries and thus slightly different electrical characteristics.
Although they are very popular batteries, getting right replacement isn't always as easy as it looks like.
Mighty Max ML35-12 is Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) battery with nominal voltage of 12 volts and nominal capacity of 35 Ah.
It is general purpose, deep cycling AGM battery, suitable for broad range of applications including trolling motor battery, fish finder battery, solar battery, for ATVs and other electric vehicles, security systems, and other off-the-grid applications.
Odyssey PC925 are sealed lead acid (SLA) absorbent glass mat (AGM) dual-purpose batteries, designed for marine, automotive, LTV, ATV and other applications.
Odyssey PC925 are durable, vibration and mechanical impact resistant batteries, providing good charging/discharging features in wide temperature range, being able to produce large starting current, tolerate large number of deep discharge cycles etc.
Being SLA AGM batteries, Odyssey PC925 batteries are low maintenance batteries that can be mounted in virtually any position.
