AC Delco part number M27mf.used one all day charging 6s 5000 TP packs at 10 amps back to back.and if you really have the $$$ go for the optima blue top.

Not to completely disagree but check out the Sears Platinum line.
My buddies FWC camper has a sticker on the battery door that suggests NOT using the Optima. I don't know why. I like the lead thats in the Odessey Hawker line, this is a rebranded one sears sells.

You'll want 2 to get 24V+ to fully power your charger, if your wanting to charge them at more than 2C that is?

Also I wouldn't spend too much on a lead acid battery unless you know how to really look after them.

P.S. if you can you want to get thats purely a deep cycle battery, the ones that can also be used for vehicle starting won't last as long.

60% of the time, it works every time!

With the pictured battery, I think you are paying for more than what you need. This battery is a great deep cycle battery but that's because it has been design with bouncing around in a boat in mind.

I don't think you will be bouncing it around enough to warrant the additional price.

@u8mydog,the optima is not your typical lead acid wet battery,It is an AGM(Asorbed Glass Mat)type.this means as well as having a good deep cycle and long life,the fact that the electrolyte cannot spill or leak and destroy everything makes it a good choice.Yes it's expensive,but what isn't in this hobby?LOL

maybe think of a deep-cycle battery as a very low-cost, zero-noise generator.

oops, bounced it!

Another vote for the Optima! Great batteries! Though expensive, they are worth the money. Nothing else quite compares.

I object ...

The correct price on the D 31M is around $210 - $230 , and not the $374 you have linked to.

http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_...06773402P?mv=rr

The D27M would also work good and its even cheaper.

Another tip to keep that sucker charged is to get one of the smaller solar panels from Harbor Freight. They work well!

I have an 80AH version of this:

http://www.batteriesplus.com/produc...Werker/12V.aspx

These are a little cheaper than Optimas and certainly good enough for field charging a 700E.

Two of these in series and you could fly all day with no problems.

My 80ah in series with my old Optima 55ah yellow top gives me more than 10 flights of my 700E, so two 100ah in series would give you even more.

But that's 150lbs of batts, so you'll need to keep em in the truck!

Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on PB batteries, you might want to consider getting a generator. It will probably out last the batts and give a whole lot more power for all day charging. Plus, it's probably no heavier or bulkier than two of those batts...

I recently replaced the battery in my vehicle with a Die Hard Platnium. It's an AGM battery. I looked at the Optima batteries and wasn't impressed so I went with the Die Hard Platnium. It was expensive, but I figured it would be worth it as I plan to keep the vehicle for a while. Reports are that the Die Hard Platnium is made by Odessy.

Ultimately, the generator is the best way to go and I have Honda eu2000i for the serious field charging. The Die Hard Platnium is for the those days when I fly the small aircraft and don't need to lug the generator to the field.

I was taking two walmart deep cycles to the field... instead of that I picked up a generac ix2000 for 476 shipped off of ebay, and 2 dell 6650 poweredge server power supplies off ebay for 50 shipped. Put the PS in a stanley toolbox from lowes, wired them for 24v/12v output and called it a day. Sure, it's alot of extra gear. But, you fuel the gen and go!
