    Have been using Delco Voyager Batteries (deep cycle & cranking) for years with very good longevity on two boats.
    I always keep a "Battery Minder" connected which does a good job maintaining em. One of my cranking batteries went bad after two years. Has anyone using Delco experienced problems lately? :-?

    Anyone have experience with Dekka batteries? Just wondering if this is another option for my boats. ::)

    I've seen Deka batteries explode on numerous occasions.
    They weren't in boats, but in automobiles.
    It was 4 separate occasions to be exact.

    I have a West Marine/Dekka AGM on my HB as the starting/house battery...its the smallest one they have. HB used them a lot when they first started. They seem to be reliable and have a good warranty. If you have a few more dollars to spend though I prefer the Odyssey AGM's. Got one as a troller battery and love it.
