    I have always used EverStart batteries for my boat and cars. I have fished here in Florida for the past 45 years and have used many deep cycle EverStart Maxx marine batteries. They used to have a 3 year replacement warranty, but at last purchase this warranty went down to two years. I should have seen the writing on the wall. Charging my battery after each trip, I never had a problem for four years or longer. Now my Maxx 29 has started running out of power half way through a 5 hour fishing trip. I purchased it in August of 2011, less than 3 years ago. I ran to get the receipt thinking I had a 3 year warranty, but then remembered it was now two years. Still not a horrible value at $99, but disappointing that they have obviously reduced the quality of the product. Not sure where I will get my next battery

    My old EverStart Max deep cycle trolling motor battery lost it's charge yesterday during the first 15 minutes of use. It was very disappointing to say the least and after returning home and attempting to recharge it I was even more disappointed when it would not return to full charge and when a load was applied it fully discharged in seconds. In my mind it seemed like only a year or two ago I had installed this battery brand new. After removing the battery from the battery box my frustration turned to happiness. Not because the battery obviously was in need of replacement but because the reciept still attatched to it clearly indicated I had purchased and installed it 74 months earlier. In over 30 tears of owning fishing boats I have never had a deep cycle battery last this long. Usually 36-48 months is the absolute best I could expect. This replacement cost will be painless as I have paid more many times over and have gotten less longevity from other brands. This same experience occurred last spring with a lawn tractor battery that had lasted 70 months. EverStart will be in all my equipment exclusively from now on.

    Great Battery, But Check The Electrolyte First

    Be sure to check the electrolyte level when you purchase the battery. I purchaced the MAXX DC 29 and MAXX DC 24. Both had low electrolyte levels. While there was sufficient levels to keep the plates covered so sulfation wasn't a concern, I had to add 6 - 8 oz of distilled water to each battery to get both battries to the proper levels. Also, make sure you purchase the newest battery you can based on the date sticker on the battery. Most experts recommend you don't by a battery that is older than 3 months old. The two batteries I purchased were less than a month old. While the battery says maintenance free, you will need to monitor the electrolyte levels if you want your purchase to last.

    Difference between 29DC ($86) and Maxx 29DC ($99)

    I have read all 263 questions in the Question and Answer part. The "EverStart Expert" has repeatedly dodged the question about the difference between the 29DC and the Maxx 29DC. I asked for the physical structural difference between the 2 batteries and thought that I had worded my question air tight like you need to be a lawyer to get an answer on here. Again, they dodged the question about physical differences in construction and did not provide a straight forward answer. I turned right around and asked the question again wording it even more tightly (ie. are there any differences in engineering, design, materials, internal components, or electrolytes?) and it was not answered and they did not even allow it to get posted. Sort the questions by "recent first" to see my previous question and the "beat around the bush" answer. So it was time for an experiment. I bought 2 - Maxx 29DC batteries ($99 each) and 2 - 29DC batteries ($86 each). I weighed them, I measured them, I looked closely at them, and I tested them. They are the same size, same weight, and look identical in construction other than the stickers. The manufacture date coding on the top of the batteries is also exactly the same. Electrical testing of the 2 reveals no significant differences in voltage/amperage. (There were some slight differences in weight and electrical testing from battery to battery, but it did not show the Maxx having any superiority. It was insignificant and random.) While the Maxx says "Premium" in yellow and "30% more cycling capability", both of those are generic statements. It does not say it has 30% more cycling capability than the 29DC, it simply allows the reader to make an assumption on what that statement means. While they would probably like you to believe that it has 30% more than the 29DC or 30% more than the competition, it could mean it has 30% more cycling capability than a conventional car battery. That statement means zilch, nada, nothing. I think the only real difference between the Maxx 29DC and the 29DC is the warranty. You are getting an additional year of warranty for $13. Buy the Maxx29DC only if you want to pay an extra $13 for what is basically a 1 year extended warranty. My experience with EverStart Marine batteries (ie. Johnson Controls) is that they will last you 5+ years with proper charging. I will save my $13 as I do not think I will need the extra year of warranty.

    I bought a pair of these group 29 MAXX deep cycles for two different boats to run the trolling motors. They just keep pulling all day. I've had these 6 1/2 years, one has started discharging rapidly last trip. I've been so pleased with these I'm buying two more of the same without even checking the other one; figuring it's not far behind. I've used every popular brand over the 40 years of fishing and these by far have been the best and are no more expensive than a comparably rated reserve capacity. (Tip) always and I mean always use "distilled" water when adding water to any wet cell battery. This is especially true if you are using well water. Bottled "drinking / spring" water is NOT distilled water but it is better than tap water. Good fishing!.....

    • A. What mandm1200 said is right on target. But the problem with the amp hour rating on this battery (I saw it in the store today - 114 amp hours @ 1 amp rate) is determining the amp hour capacity at the 1 amp rate is highly deceptive. Most deep cycle batteries I've ever seen were rated at the 20 hour rate - which would produce a number much smaller than 114 if it were run on this battery. At 1 amp of load this battery should last 114 hours until the battery is down to 10.5 volts (that's what that rating means). But who discharges their deep cycle battery at 1 amp per hour? Nobody I know. And using a different methodology to determine amp hour rating means you cannot compare it with another battery that had its capacity determined by the 20 hour rate. It's not a level playing field. If the amp hour capacity of this battery had been determined using the 20 hour rate it would have had to have been discharged at probably somewhere between 5 and 6 amps, not one. And that would have produced a lower amp hour number, probably in the mid 90s somewhere. So beware, for all practical purposes this is not a 114 amp hour battery unless you really are going to discharge it at 1 amp (that's less than the power it takes to run one of those little incandescent RV light bulbs).

    • A. Looking at the spec sheet, which there is none, it's not possible at answer your question. Most manufactures will state Amp/hours for a 20hr period of discharge time. As the load/current is increased it will decrease the time it takes to reach 10.5 volts which is considered a dead battery. That is common sense; the more you drain it the faster is dies. What is important to know is how this affects the amp/hour rating. A battery that is discharge over a 2 hour period may have a rating of only 68 amp/hours. That same battery discharged over the normal/standard 20 hour period of time may have an amp/hour rating of 100. If left to discharge slowly over a 100 hour period of time it amp/hours may be 118. So when a manufacture states an amp/hour, they should also state the time period of discharge. Brand name batteries usally have a spec sheet list the various amp/hours versus the time period. Doing it that way gives the consumer something to compare when buying a battery.

    I am trying to determine which "Battery Tender" or "Floater" product to buy and I cannot determine if this new battery is a GEL battery or not. I can not determine if this battery is even a real "Deep Cycling" battery or not? Any recommendations?

    • A. This is a flooded-cell, deep cycle battery. It is not a GEL.

    • A. This battery is not a Gel Cell battery. It's a "flooded lead acid" battery. This battery type generally falls into two classes: "starting" and "deep cycle". The difference between the two is the construction of the lead plates. The amount of amps that can be pulled is proportional to the surface area of those plates. On a starting battery, many holes are put into the plates to increase surface area (and cranking amps). A deep cycle battery has solid plates without holes. When a lead acid battery discharges, lead sulfate collects on those plates. The deeper the discharge, the more lead sulfate. The solid plates in a deep cycle battery can handle a lot of that lead sulfate buildup and then shed it all off when recharged. When a starting battery does a deep discharge, the lead sulfate can plug up those holes permanently. That reduces its ability to take a charge and to provide high current, like starting an engine. This battery, and any labeled Marine, RV, or Group 24, Group 27, or Group 29 are all the deep cycle type.

    • A. This is a Sealed Lead Acid battery. That means it is a wet cell battery, not a gel battery. You won't touch a gel battery for this price. As far as I know, the only TRUE deep cycling batteries are 6V types, as used in golf carts or personal mobility devices. However, as far as this type of battery goes, it will handle repeated deep cyclings. It has 122 Amp Hours of reserve power.

    • A. Its a flooded battery. This is closer to a dual-type battery, mix between starting and deep-cycle. Product to buy to charge your battery is up to you.. The more you spend the better. Battery desulfating or "pulse" charger is best.
