That's a dual purpose battery, not a deep cycle.

How many charges for your batteries do you need to get out of it between charges of the Pb battery?

Go to AutoZone and buy the marine/deep cycle there. It's a Johnson Control battery of very good quality.

well the pb battery would only be used to charge at the field then put back on charge after i got home. what is the price on the battery you link to?
as far as how many charges i dont know i havent flew my electrics yet
i will start out with 4 charged batteries for each plane then charge as i go.

This is the one I had linked to: http://www.batteriesplus.com/pc-3647...-SLI31MDC.aspx

Changed the post though since I don't know as I'd recommend it since I haven't used it yet, but it looks like it should hold up a little better than the one you're looking at. Also, I called them up and they said it has a capacity of 120AH. The in-store price is around $100.
