[moth-rah] Batteries for running lights

I like wheelchair batteries.  They are designed to be repeatedly charged and
will run a trap for nearly 2 nights if necessary.  A bit more expensive, but
I also like their compact size.  I can carry them in 6-pack coolers.

Subject: [moth-rah] Batteries for running lights

Hello Lepidophiles,
I do a lot of sampling in remote areas where generators are either not
allowed or cannot be dragged, so I run my UV light traps off batteries.
In the past I have used garden tractor batteries, but now I am
interested in using deep-discharge batteries. The UV lights are the
standard issue from Bioquip (15 Watts; 12 volts). Can anyone recommend a
deep discharge battery for running these lights?
