Default Battery for Fun Finder X-160

Does anyone have any ideas for replacing the battery in my X-160? I am assuming I should get a deep cycle but don't know one brand, model, size or type from another. Thanks!!

I use this in my boat for the trolling motor and my camper. Very good battery. https://www.autozone.com/miscellaneo...ent/107676_0_0

I use an AGM battery ... Optima Blue Top.

Biggest powered one available to fit into the battery box.

Also use AGM Optima in my vehicles.

Expensive but super pleased with the performance and lift span. NEVER had on die in a vehicle. One in the pickup still functioned perfectly after 11 years use when traded the vehicle off.

I use group 31 batteries from Napa -- they have 110 amp/hour capacity, which is more like 55 amp/hour usable capacity. I have two batteries --one in use and one in reserve. I swap them out when the first one gets to 12.1 volts.

Make sure you do not let your battery, of whatever kind, get down below 50 per cent state of charge, or 12.1 volts measured in a resting state. I did not know this rule at first, and I ruined a couple of batteries before I learned my lesson.

The whole battery maintenance area can be confusing and intimidating. Hang in there and ask lots of questions!

Also, I recommend that you keep your battery on a trickle charger when you are not camping. I use a BatteryMinder Plus.

Thanks but this one is too big for my box. I found one though.

I looked at those and they were a little too pricey for me right now but I think I will go with these in the future
