if you belong to Sam's club - they have Duracell AGM - for the price they sell them for its worth joining just to get the batteries

if going lithium - contact drewcraft.com for ionics - usually a discount if you contact him thru Bass Boat central. I changed my trolling motor batteries to ionics and couldn't be happier

I've had the Sam's Duracell AGM 31 before and for the low price it was a good battery. I think I got about 3 1/2 years out of it before it wouldn't hold a charge for very long. I decided to spend more and got an Odyssey Extreme 31M PC2150 based upon a recommendation from a friend who has run them for years. I haven't been disappointed. It is very sturdy, well built, it has as much amps as you can get in a 31M size and I believe when used as a cranking battery mine came with a full 5 year non pro rated warranty (may only be 4 now, not sure). It was expensive, they cost around $580.00 but it has the power! For trolling motor batteries I tried Interstates with mixed results. For me the best value is just the Walmart Dual purpose Everstart 29DC. If you can get the Maxx version you get a longer warranty but I'm not real sure there is any real difference in construction between the regular 29DC marine and the Maxx version. It seems like I get 4 or 5 years from the Everstarts and that is by taking care of them (recharge right after use and keep the fluid level where it is supposed to be).

Get the 125 amp hour ionic for your cranking. Had mine for 2 and half years and have had 0 issues on my 200 proxs. I run two 12" screens, one 10" screen, Active Target 1 box, SS3D box, sonic hub, and all accessories with one battery.
