Deep cycle gel batteries take your house bank or trolling motor to the next level

Gel batteries go beyond the conventions of traditional flooded and AGM batteries to provide a longer life and more durability. At a 1% monthly discharge rate, these batteries are able to tolerate long periods without being charged and still be ready for the water when you are. Our gel batteries will also stand up to being discharged for long periods of time and bounce back to full capacity when charged. By locking the electrolyte in a thixotropic gel the risk of vibration damage is nearly eliminated. Rough seas or long dirt roads are no match for gel batteries. Because there is no fluid, gel batteries can be installed in any position (except upside down); they are great for installations in hard to reach areas. Like Flooded and AGM batteries, Gel batteries require a specific charge profile. We recommend checking the specifications of your charger to confirm compatibility. If you want a battery that will stand up to marine use and so much more, our gel batteries are the answer.

Manufactured in the U.S. for West Marine by East Penn, one of the most reputable battery companies in the country. Each battery receives over 250 quality control checks to guarantee consistent and superior performance. East Penn’s award winning factory leads the industry in closed loop and sustainable practices. Nearly all of the plastics, lead and acid are recycled, so our batteries are great for your boat and the environment.
