STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich., March 19, 2019 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Ask many boating enthusiasts which deep cycle batteries they prefer for their crafts, and they’ll name one of two brands: Deka, or Trojan USA, says Batteries Shack. They’re top-of-the-line batteries made in the USA; Deka through a company called East Penn Manufacturing. Both are known for having longer life spans and higher power outputs than competing brands.

The boaters are especially enthusiastic about Trojan USA, as they trust these batteries to get them home after trolling for four or five hours.

In 2008 a fisherman who ended up stranded on the Detroit River was able to get home after his motor shut down because his Trojan Battery had enough power to get the job done. The authorities even asked him what brand he had, and credited his return wholly to his Trojan battery.

But batteries from these brands aren’t always so easy to come by. They’re difficult to find online. Many big box stores won’t carry them, as they can make more money by using private labeling on batteries which come in from overseas. Some big box stores won’t sell them at all: Meijer just discontinued their entire line of car, boat, and RV batteries.

For one thing, selling great batteries can be tough. A good Deka or Trojan USA battery can last as long as 7 years. That’s a long time to wait for a customer’s return. Thus, many battery stores don’t want to sell them either. They often prefer to white label batteries too, and typically sell batteries which won’t last any longer than three years.

In other states, some enthusiasts have to drive 50 miles or more to get a Deka battery.

Metro Detroit’s luckier. Batteries Shack in Sterling Heights is an authorized dealer for both brands. And their Mound Road location just off M59 makes them easy to reach. And the owner, Anas Tela, is enthusiastic about both brands. “It really is tough to get a better battery than a Deka or a Trojan USA.”

Even if you have found one of these batteries online there are advantages to purchasing them in person.

“We help you get the old battery out of your boat, RV, or golf cart safely and will install the new one for you. We’re also happy to handle charging your battery for you. And if you have questions, we’re right here to answer them for you, face-to-face,” Tela notes.

There’s another advantage to going to Batteries Shack: they guarantee all their batteries are manufactured and dated in the same year. They sell them fully charged, which means you’ll know you’re getting a solid performer at a low price.
