    Default Dixon deep cycle good?

    Anyone experience with 105Ah Dixon deepcycle battery. I want it for power back up at home during outages, will be permanently connected to solar panel. Won't be using it daily. Good battery?

    I've been using Dixon 60aH permanently connected to solar panel to run led lights.
    No issues at all.

    For a backup only it should work fine.
    If you going to cycle it daily, it will not last a year.

    Then I am lucky that mine has lasted me 6 years with regular use.
