Although deep cycle lead-acid marine batteries and deep cycle gel batteries are designed for multiple extended discharge cycles;  if the battery is not called upon for an extended period of time, then your battery may not work or perform when you need it most. Both types of batteries can be discharged as much as 80% time after time and fully recover, but when they sit dormant for too long they may be un-recoverable.

With proper care deep cycle lead-acid marine batteries should have a life span of 1-6 years and deep cycle marine gel batteries 8-10 years .
