    Default Trolling motor batteries and onboard charger

    Well looks like I am going to need new trolling batteries, the others are 5 years old and went kaput this weekend after 30 min
    I jave a promariner charger 2 bank on the 24 volt system that lools like its leaking and will also need to be replaced, joy...
    I'm thinking of AGM instead of wet cell.. Anyone have a recommendation?
    As for charger, should I stick with the pro mariner? Go with minnkota or genius??
    While I'm at it I think ill stick another 2 bank charger on the crank and electronics battery in the back

    I’ve had a Pro Mariner 20 amp 2 bank charger now, 4-5 yrs with no problems,,3 months ago,,switched it to charge AGM batteries and it works perfect charging 2-100 amp Ionic lithiums to 100% charged. I have had good results with it. You might give them a call.

    Any recommendations on battery brand for Group 31 AGM? I've been trying to look at reviews, articles, etc.. it's almost overload.. I know the people on this forum are knowledgeable and straight forward.

    Iíve often seen the Duracell group 31 AGM deep cycle recommended. Samís Club used to have the best price but it appears out of stock. Batteries Plus has them and you can get 10% off if you buy online and pick up in store. Itís what Iíll buy next time I need TM batteries. Lots of threads online discussing them if you Google around.

    They are manufactured by East Penn who also makes good/great batteries under the Deka brand. The last time I looked at Cabelaís marine batteries They were manufactured by East Penn as well.

    I went thru 2 pro mariner 3 bank 30 amp chargers in about 8 years. I went with a 3 bank 30 amp Minn Koto 4/5 years ago and so far so good. Cannot help on the AGM batts cause Ive never went that route. I run the biggest Walmart marine batts I can get (group 31).
    Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing.

    I have two of the Duracell Group 31 AGM batteries for my trolling motor. They are currently 5 years old and I can still stay out all day. I have not had any issues out of them. I will buy the same thing again when they go bad. For the money I spent I have been very satisfied with these batteries.
