Just general discussion, not put into the Electrical section as its not a problem or issue.

As the title states, my deep cycle is no more.

I had noticed that the Patrol was not cranking like normal & thought that the alternator may be on its last legs.

So I put both batteries on charge independantly over night & noticed that the cranker was perfect in the morning and the deep cycle was caput, stuffed, knackered, cactus & gone to heaven.

Anyway I can't complain, it lasted 6.5 years and went through 2 vehicles & was not used as it was supposed to be used, it was over charged, used for cranking, discharged to less than 11 volts numerous times...............Great little battery.

New one now installed, lets see if I can get the same milage out of the new one.

What are you guys getting out of your second batteries?

That's really interesting and worth an inquiry, my deep cycle Bosch is about 5 years old and got a bit of a cooking at the Glass House Mountains last weekend, can see distortion in the case now.

Paul,
got mine off fley bay, sydney mob, this one DELKOR N70ZZ 710CCA car truck 4WD Battery 3YR warranty (eBay item 170392353922 end time 02-Apr-11 10:46:22 AEDST) : Cars, Bikes, Boats cheap as chips, pick-up from warehouse at Oxley in Bris, pick-up also in Sydney $165. My second one after the other suffered the death of a thousand cuts, wouldn't go past.

Not a bad price mate, The local battery joint where I got mine from was only 5 min down the road which was handy.
