I feel like I have a pretty good batttery.
I spent like $78.00 on it, but it holds a good charge after long usage. I have used it several times for several hours of night fishing. This includes
using the trolling motor a times. It takes a few hours, anywhere from 6 to 10 hours of charge time, to charge with the six amp setting.
I have a small john boat and I took it out day before yesterday( I caught some crappie in December), I threw the battery on an 110 volt charger and it
charged for only about an hour.
Two days before that I took it out after dark and ran the lights, and a spotlight for a few hours. It only took about an hour to charge it then
I just went into my back room and checked the voltage with my digital voltmeter and it read 12.93 volts. It is pretty chilly back there also.
I really can't complain. Except for I live at the bottom if a hill surrounded by trees. The sun it pretty far south in the sky in the winter here.
The only way I get any solid sun for panels is if I chase the sun around d and Dodge the shadows.
