Car Batteries 101: What is a Deep Cycle Battery?

Deep-cycle batteries are built to power vehicles like trolling motors on boats, recreational vehicles, golf carts and other small items. Unlike an auto battery, these models are made to discharge up to 75% of their charge depending on the construction. The thick plates inside the battery increase the charge capacity, allowing it to deliver power for a long period of time.


Benefits of a Deep-Cycle Battery

  • They easily power small fishing boats and trolling motors.
  • Deep-cycle batteries are the perfect option for RVs, allowing you to use electronics without the motor running.
  • Due to the high charge capacity, they'll be able to run for a long period of time.
