I've been looking around for batteries, and I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I plan to purchase a gold or platinum battery from CarQuest that has about 800-1000 cranking amps (an upgrade from my current 500-650 cranking amps), to ensure a clean start every time. I'm looking at Marine batteries for the secondary battery, but I'm not sure what to look for in terms of specs. The best I've found so far was a 750-900 cranking amps with a 160 minute reserve. If anyone has figured out how many amps the roof needs to run, that'd be helpful too.
I plan to have my Ecto at day long cons and events with the lights on, so I'm looking to be able to run stuff for 8-10 hours at a time. Some of them are indoors, so starting the car to recharge won't always be an option.
Any suggestions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
