For both deep cycle and starting applications.

If your engine runs frequently, and your electrical demands at anchor are light, dual-purpose batteries are an effective and economical choice. Our Dual-Purpose batteries are specially designed to perform like deep cycle batteries. The result is batteries that deliver plenty of marine starting power while still being able to handle moderate deep-cycle loads. 

Dual-Purpose batteries can last through 200+ deep cycles (more than other brands advertising so-called “Deep-Cycle” or “Marine and RV” batteries) and still provide plenty of cranking power. Built for West Marine by East Penn. Combination marine terminals (tapered posts and hex nuts) included. 12-month free replacement warranty.
