Deep Cycle Battery


A deep cycle battery is designed to provide a steady amount of current over a long period of time. A deep cycle battery can provide a surge when needed, but nothing like the surge an automotive battery can. The term "deep cycle" refers to batteries in which the cycle is from full charge to 80% discharge. A cycle for an automotive battery is about 5%, and for telephone batteries is usually 10%. A deep cycle battery is designed to be deeply discharged over and over again (something that would damage an automotive battery). To accomplish this, a deep cycle battery uses thicker plates.
