I've being using the Westmarine SeaGel AGM 8D for the last 2 1/2 years. I use the battery for nuking lunch in the microwave during work lunch almost every week day, drain it down to 25% left almost everday and charge it up at the end of day via the Tripplite Powerinverter when I get home; and leave it plugged in till the next day..
Last six months, the solar panels have been augmenting and helping the drain and re-charge also, probably extending the life of the AGM.
So far it's holding up...
