If you like the Trojan, go with another one. You will find that most guys here have a personal preferance for batteries. But for a battery only used to start the main motor (does it run anything else?) you can get into one for as little as $49 at Walmart... or you can spend a lot more for more amp hours and cranking amps just about anywhere. It's really a choice you need to make.

I myself prefer Optima batteries. But they are pricey.

Fife,

I am assuming your battery was a flooded cell? Trojan makes a good battery. If your old one worked well which consider switching to another brand or type?

If you are looking to make a change go I would consider an AGM. They have a relative low self-discharge and do not have a charge/discharge current limit.

i have 2 batteries in my battery compartment

one runs electronics-(radio, marine radio, graph,lights etc)
one starts motor and und power tilt

they are both hooked up together to a charger

i have a 36 v trolling motor setup-but theya re fine and hooked up to a seperate system and charger

looking to replace starting battery
may also replace electronics battery if price isnt took much

they all are 6 years old(so may just do both at same time)

didnt reall feel like dropping 150 bucks on a battery, if 70 can do it

these dont run trolling motor and such
