Hi Chris,

I would not recommend those kind of batteries, I would take a look at golf
cart batteries of the 6v or 8v variety. Heres a good guide on lead acids -

http://www.electric-cars-are-for-girls.com/6-volt-golf-cart-battery.html

Regular deep cycle batteries, especially 12v's will wear out too quickly;
they're not built for this kind of job, I'm sure someone else can chime in
with a link or explnation of exactly why.

These batteries really aren't happy if you draw more than maybe 25 to
50 Amps from them. Try drawing 100 Amps continuous and 500 amps peak
from them will lead to unhappiness....

For a 96-108 volt car, flooded marine batteries will deliver very poor life.
Most will last less than a year, because they're not designed to deliver the
high currents - in the hundreds of amps - that a low voltage EV requires.

Some AGM (sealed, valve regulated) marine batteries can handle road EV
currents and deliver decent live (2-3 years in typical use). But they
usually cost considerably more than flooded marine batteries.

For a 96-108 volt EV, I'd recommend 6 volt golf car batteries.

Deep cycle marine Batteries work great in my car. Just remember to check al=
l the numbers and the branding code on the batteries to make sure that they=
are all of the same batch and are up to power at time of pick up. That bei=
ng said, I will NEVER buy from, or recommend, my local US Battery dealer ag=
ain. Humans!
My first pack of 6volters got around 53 mpcharge and did all freeway speeds=
around 45 mpCharge. Even the sulphided second pack, with its 22mile range =
on flats only, no freeways & can never get up a hill, still beats anything =
across the intersection. =

These days, I am waiting for the LiFePos glut with EVeryone else!

I don't shop where I can't charge.

Wait, I'm confused. Do you have marine batteries or 6 volt batteries?
Marine batteries aren't 6 volt, but golf car batteries are.

The battery salesmen will guarantee that their deep-cycle marines are perfect
for your car, and will even get the factory to back them up, but they are
just pushing for a sale. They will quickly lose capacity from the sustained
high-apm loads that an EV uses. I kept an email exchange from Deka that I
re-read whenever I need to get my bloodpressure sky high.
