I was reading in my Defender catalog last night and found some really incredible capacity marine batteries. Think they are really intended for off shore big boat use, but looking at the multiple battery threads it made me think why not just have ~4 times the a/h rating and have a battery that will not go dead. THese were AGM (absorbed glass mat) and then found out the OPtimas are also AGM.

$545 for a battery may sound expensive, but compared to perko, wiring, second battery, and such, well, yes it is still expensive!
