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.

        Comments about Dual-Purpose Flooded Marine Batteries:

        I purchased two of these batteries in 2011 when I purchased my boat. They lasted until July, 2015. I replaced one of them. The other one is still serviceable. Will replace it in the fall.

              Even your salesman couldn't believe that we got 9 years on these batteries. Our 31 Tiara never had a problem with your batteries and started without problem all that time. They still had life In them when I decided it was time to replace them. I purchased the same batteries from you again.

                    I have a 19 foot Bayliner with a cuddy cabin and only have one battery installed so decided to do a dual purpose battery - get the best of both worlds so far so good
