When looking at deep cycle batteries I was led to believe that they mostly come with only a 6 month warranty. Can someone tell me which deep cycle batteries have a warranty greater than 6 months?

Thanks,
Topend

Yes most Deep cycle batteries only have a 6 month warranty. R & J Batteries in Victoria give 12 months warranty on their Deep Cycle batteries. If you live in N.S.W or QLD try Alco Batteries

Why use a deep cycle battery?? A good CCA cranking battery will probably cost you half the price and last twice as long. Deep cycle batteys are not made to be run flat and recharged constantly. Atleast 75% capacity should be reatined before charging. If you're gonna use it as a second battery in your vehicle- a cranking battery will more tha suffice.

I don't have a deep cycle battery. I decided against them at the last minute. Just asking the question. I have 2 Severe Service start batteries and 1 Severe Service auxilary battery. They are the similar to a marine battery with thicker plates and plate lock. About 70 amp/hrs.

signman,
May I sugest you contact your local battery supplier and ask him for some facts about Deep Cycle batteries, or read the many and various web sites created by intellegent people who have some knowledge on the subject, or even the web sites of battery manufacturers.

Another good place to get facts is from people who have had both Starter batteries and also Deep Cycle batteries, and ask how long they get running a fridge without starting the vehicle on each battery.

If you are going to retort have some facts included in your reply please.

I think mine only had 6 months warranty, but can't be sure 'cos I bought it two years ago and can't remember. It is still going strong, though doesn't get enough use unfortunately. It has run my Engel without missing a beat and seems to flourish on neglect. Can't be bothered to go outside in the dark and check on the make but might post tomorrow with the details.
