Shopping for a trolling motor battery.
Online retailers are heavy with AGM models from China and Vietnam.
Do they hold up well, or is it penny-wise & pound foolish to go that route?
Our 15 ft square ended antique Scanoe only weighs 90 pounds.
The motor, also antique, is a Minn Kota, 28 pounds thrust + "maximizer" circuitry.
Do we need 100 AH, or a Group 24 unit, to avoid running it down too far, too often?
Or, can a 55 AH or 70 AH battery do the job with lower weight & lower cost?
Duracell has a Group 24 with 70 AH, a traditional Lead/Acid unit, for about $100.
The weight is about the maximum we're looking for, about 45 pounds.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I'll check E-Bay ... had been checking Amazon, some E-retailers, and even Wally-World.
