Why not an AGM battery (such as Optima YellowTop) ?

That's what I use and it works just fine :) I believe 51R??
Apparently you can also purchase more generic AGM batteries for substantially less but I got mine on Amazon and saved quite a bit over the same yellow top locally :)

Many batteries are labelled "AGM" but are just marine type batteries - if that. Reputable, well-reviewed brands are the way to go with AGM.
