Dual-Purpose Flooded Marine Batteries

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.

                      this is my second batteryof the same type, these batteries are hard to kill.my boat stays in the water year round and I have no shorepower . my bilge pump runs all winter after heavy rains, and this battery performs perfectly.I only have one battery so I replace it every three years. I keep a Solar trickle charger on it and have no problems.

                            Needed a Group 27 battery while on a mooring ball in Annapolis MD. Got Jason on the phone, he took my credit card over the phone and he delivered it to me at the Town Marina.
