I am after a 10kWh battery for use in a boat. Battery configured for 48V.
Weight is not absolutely critical. Discharge rate will be around 1kW. The
battery would be for deep cycle use for a few months each year. It would be
charged by solar panels and wind turbine.

I have looked at AGM deep cycle lead/acid batteries and there is a range of
options in size and possible configurations. Is there any type of battery
that would suit the application better than another. For example would
golf cart batteries be better than forklift batteries? Are there any brands
better than another?

Also are there other types of batteries worthwhile considering based on
price, efficiency and life?
