Topic: 15:12 SLI, Marine and Deep-cycle Batteries
- Start, Light and Ignition (SLI) batteries are designed to deliver a lot of energy in a short time, not to deliver steady power over a long time.
- Marine batteries are a compromise between marine and deep-cycle batteries, and share characteristics of both.
- A deep-cycle battery is designed to be repeatedly discharged 80% of capacity and can deliver a steady current for a long period of time. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deep_cycle_car_battery
