    optima is overrated.. I just don't like gel-cells, simply not worth the $

    When I was selecting new batteries for my boat, to me the important requirements were maintenance-free (met by AGM batteries) and long run time under load (met by the Lifeline GPL-31XT battery w/ 25% more Ampere-hour rating than ALL the other group 31 options).

    My system has six of these Lifeline batteries, three powering the 2,500W sound system, two more that can be switched-in for extra run time and a sixth that is isolated w/ the only load of starting the generator that then powers the AC to DC battery charger.
