I'm planning on having 2 of the above, they are sealed deep cycle/starter batteries, they will be used to power my TD5 D-Lander with front and rear electric winches, and all the usual auxillaries.

But which do i get, cheaper, smaller, lighter but less capacity, or bigg heavy beefy jobbies??

In terms of winching, the size of the batteries buys you the time that the Winch(es) are using more current than the alternator can supply.

If you're winching seriously, you'll never be able to meet demand (400A winch, 150A alternator?)

There's not that much between the batteries you've selected really.

Are you getting Deep cycle, or Starter batteries? the two are completely different.

Factors like the space you have to house the batteries, and cost, are going to play important parts, i'd get the biggest that would fit.

Actually i wouldn't, i'm fitting proper winches, but y'know.....
