Dekka's are good batteries. Also there are several types. I believe Reef Hawg is getting the flooded (wet-cell) for that price, which is just fine. AGM and Gel-cell will cost more, but I don't think the extra cost is warranted.

I think Pamps in Green Bay sells them. I believe they get them from Remy battery in Milwaukee. Tom, with those batteries, if you plug them in after every trip, and keep the fully charged when stored, I doubt the Stealh system will add any more years of service. You certainly shouldn't run out of power during the day.

To get the charging on the kicker, you need to get the remote control version, or your dealer or you, can add a cable to a tiller version to get the charge capability, or so I have been told. I was going to add it to my 9.9, but never did.

Jason, I think the yellow Maxx batteries are not marine batteries, so that could explain the loss of cells. Marine batteries are normally made with heavy duty plate mounting, to take the abuse.

When I was in the Milwaukee Chapter, we had Bob from Remy Battery come and talk about marine batteries, and chargers. There was a transcript of his presentation, but I can't find it. Very imformative, and a portion of it debunked a lot of myths about batteries. like memory, and bringing them in the basement for the winter, etc. Whenever I need a battery for boat or auto, I went to Remy, and I would spend some time talking with Bob. I learned a lot of do's and don'ts.

I just called Pamps...they only carry Interstate.
