House batteries joined, or banked, into a unit, deep cycle batteries work best, because they provide more power for longer periods of time. Deep cycle batteries recharge faster and more complete than starter batteries. Starting batteries are larger in size, and have a higher Cold Cranking Amp (CCA) rating, which are similar to vehicle batteries. The CCA’s supply a quick energy burst with an aim of getting the engine going or starting it.
