So far so good running a meijer 27 deep cycle for cranking and 3 graphs! Figured why buy a specific battery when I have one laying around.

Could use some battery info also. I recently received a jon boat from a relative and I ran out and bought an Everstart Maxx 29dc to run a 45lb minn kota transom mount. Ive used it twice, but my question is should I only charge it the night before use, or right after I get back from using it, or set it on maintain throughout the week? Which option will keep the battery the freshest the longest? It has ran down to about 50% after each use so far. Thanks.

The guys over at Conplete Battery Source recommend that you charge the battery after every use and keep your charger setting on maintain. I have an on-board charger on my boat so once the batteries are charged, the charger automatically goes into maintain.

This is correct... Batteries are not meant to be discharged 80% or more... This kills the life cycles it is meant to have... This is another reason to buy as big of RC you can fit in your boat... This leaves the most in the battery between charges and gives you the most years service.

I don't know what kind of charger you're using, but there are some reasonably priced single bank chargers that you can mount in your boat. Minn Kota makes one I know. They make a couple different ones specifically for deep cycle batteries. A charge for deep cycle batteries is always better than one for your auto. A deep cycle charger will extend the battery life. There is some really neat "smart" chargers out there too.

Complete Battery Source will also tell you that if you store your boat indoors during the winter, you don't have to remove the batteries at all if you can keep them on charge throughout. If you can not store inside, take them out and store them in your basement. If you can't keep them one charge when stored in a garage that is not heated, take them out.
