Best Battery for Ice House

Question

BigDaddy

I recently bought a used crank-down ice house. It did not come with a battery. It is wired for 12v to power a radio, fans, and lights.

What type of battery should I get? I assume that I should get a big, deep-cycle. Any brands, retailers, or types are appreciated.

Thanks!

Down Deep

My Interstates came out of the boat and into the fishhouse.

Interstate Deep Cycles are excellent for the $$$$. Have also used Trojan & Optima when the $$$$ was available.

Buy (2) same size & rating and hook in parallell pos-pos & neg-neg and your juiced for a weekend easily.

Actually, from my experience, most any of the "ordinary" name brand deep cycle batteries do OK as long as you take care of them.

The more expensive ones probably hold up better if less than ideal maintenance/charging conditions exist, IMO.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
