Best Value Sealed (maintenance free) Marine Starting Battery?

Recommended Posts

I had an unsealed deep cycle battery tip inside my boat last year causing battery acid to go everywhere. I swore I'd never have that issue again so I bought 2 Cabelas brand sealed AGM deep cycle batteries. Fortunately they happen to go on sale when I needed them and I got them for around $100 I believe. 

 

Now I need a new marine starting battery and only want to go sealed. I can't find any from Cabelas. I have a 2014 Stratus VLO with a 2014 Evinrude 115 horse Etec. How many cold cranking amps do I need?

 

 

What is the best value sealed (maintenance free) marine starting battery out there?

 

 

I'm hoping to find something in the $100 price range if that is realistic/possible. I see Lowe's carry's Deka sealed marine starting batteries for $107 with 800 cold cranking amps. I do get 10% off at Lowe's being a military veteran, so there's that, if that is a good choice.

To each his own on this subject, but I got nine years, yes nine years out of my Interstate 850CCA starting battery and it cranks a 60hp Yamaha.  That said, the battery came home with me at the end of the season each year and went on a battery tender and desulfinator device and was stored in the basement.  It died this spring and the Interstate store manager said that nine years was really weird and not common at all..  There are those who do not like Interstate, but I stayed with the same battery.
