Negative, I will buy gel batteries & pay extra. Forget lead acid batteries...

X2.  I like and want the difference.

These are all the things I have done I charge nightly sets in a warm shop  but I'd like to better what I have  

Ulrich marine  says  I should not add any more load to my charging system than 1 start battery   To keep the 2015 pro xs  firing correctly and running on design voltages

i pull a lot of power these days with graphs pumps talon and other items   Most of these my champion never was designed for 

I will continue thinking about this

I haven't had real good luck with optimas over the years in both automotive and marine applications.  I got I think two and a half years out of my group 31 blue top before it went bad.. I've had a single 24v lithium pro trolling battery for a couple years now and so far it's working great. Probably not worth the cost but it seems to work and I noticed the weight reduction.

optima blue top!  been having same trolling motor batteries for 4 years, and they get used 250 times per year.  I can''t find anything that can beat them at the price.  cmac auto repair has them in lamar, as well as interstate.  Or you can buy them thru amazon, but if you have an issue, they justsend out another one.

 

don't go cheap!!  it will kill you later, the ones i purchased were about 430 for 2 batteries, they sell at orielly for 299 each, plus exchange, and tax.

Orielly superstarts have let me troll 7 hour continuously pulling cranks last year when the high was 27. 80lb thrust.  They lasted a year and then started dying after two hours this year...   took them back at 1 month out of warranty and they gave me new ones. good customer service, doubt i will buy them again though. Im on board with just buying new batteries frequently but i want them to last at least two years

With the mindset that I'm replacing batteries after 2 years no matter what, I just replaced all 3 last week with Energizer from Sams.  Good price and after reading reviews online, I'm pretty confident they will do me good til the spring of 2018.

I bought another set of 31 series  ever starts mostly for the  ability  to be able to warranty them in several places 

how ever they had  blue top optimas at oriellys in republic for 100.00 a piece  - old shelf dates they said 

if anyone is interested in those. Ask for Donnie  just pass that info along as seemed like a good deal 

appreciate. All the advice  especially saving my charging system from damages

For what it's worth I've had a stealth 1 charging system since 2011 with no problems with my charging system. I think it works well especially when a power outlet is unavailable for charging overnight.
