Hello All,

I tried to search the forum and see if this has already been discussed but couldn't find anything. I am ready to upgrade my old Blue-Top Optima's. They are 5 years old and I have transferred them from boat to boat.
In regards to Lithium batteries... Who makes the best battery? Are they all made in the same warehouse with a different distributor name on the outside? Better warranty from some vs. the other? I like the weight savings and am OKAY with the price given the longevity of the batteries.
I see online: Smart Battery / Relion Battery / Green Life /ECT.
For those familiar with these batteries. What size would you recommend for a starting battery? (70HP Yamaha) / accessory battery (GPS, PP, ECT). Also what size for the 12V trolling motor?
Thanks in advance

I use a 60ah 720 watt h for my kayak 45Lb TM. 17lbs. Says high start current. Havent used it for a starter batt. Very happy with it. They are not cheap.

I don't know who makes the best, but, I have lithiumpros. They offer the whole kit with charging off alternator and at home charger.

I typed "Lithium Battery" in the search bar and got 68 items. Hope this helps.

What size lithium pros are you running? Same for starter and for trolling motor? Are you happy with them?

I guess what I am curious about is can I go down in battery size now because they carry more juice ect...?
