Best Deep Cycle Marine Battery for Trolling Motor
What’s the best deep cycle marine battery for a trolling motor? Without a doubt, it’s the ODYSSEY® Marine Dual Purpose battery. A trolling motor needs an incredibly powerful battery – and ODYSSEY® batteries fit the bill perfectly. Our batteries are made with 99% pure lead flat plates. Unlike many conventional batteries, they’re pure – not lead alloy.
These pure lead plates make it possible to deliver the power you need to stay on the water as long as you please – without ever worrying about running out of juice.
The ODYSSEY® Marine Dual Purpose battery offers two batteries in one – a starting battery and a trolling battery. You no longer have to choose between starting and trolling power – you’ll have everything you need in one premium solution.
Packed with Incredible Power
ODYSSEY® batteries are manufactured with prorietary Thin Plate Pure Lead (TPPL) technology. The plates inside our batteries are very thin, so more of them can fit inside. The more plates inside a battery, the more plate surface there is, resulting in much more power. ODYSSEY® batteries have twice the power and three times the life of conventional flooded lead acid batteries.
ODYSSEY® batteries also use Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) construction. This is an incredibly efficient way to contain acid, so it doesn’t spill out and cause safety concerns. In many AGM batteries, however, there’s a lot of “unused” space. That’s not the case with ODYSSEY® batteries. We avoid that unused space, increasing the number of plates. Again, that means a lot more power.
Keeping Your Boat in Top Shape Between Seasons
There are ways to ensure that your boat is ready when warmer weather arrives and you want to get out on the water. Here are just a few tips to help make sure your ODYSSEY® Marine Dual Purpose battery will be good to go when that time comes.
- Check all of the connections to your battery and the cables and case for corrosion (which will be at a minimum with an ODYSSEY® Marine Dual Purpose battery) or dirt.
- Give your battery one last charge before covering up your boat for the winter. That will not only help ensure it lasts as long as possible; it will also make sure it doesn’t freeze when the temperature plunges.
- Look at the state of charge. Just hook up a voltmeter to see how much charge you have. On an ODYSSEY® Marine Dual Purpose battery, a reading of 12.9V or higher means you have a full charge.
- To be on the safe side, disconnect the cables that run to the battery. If you keep it connected, that could result in any electronics left on your boat drawing power – an issue known as “parasitic draw.”
- If possible, move the battery to a cool, dry spot, protected from freezing temperatures. That won’t be much of an issue with an ODYSSEY® Marine Dual Purpose battery, but it could be a big problem for a conventional flooded lead acid battery.
