Additional battery time needed AGM G34

Been thinking of doing a dual battery system but it seems all i really need is a deep cycle AGM since it will primarily be providing power for my 20W / 1.45A BaJa LED's for setting up camp and maybe some amplified music from my 600 watt amp (low volume/not at same time) for a few hours.

Figured i would put down where i am so far and revisit when i am ready (also get some input). So far:

AGM Group 34 in ether an X2Power X2Power Premium AGM BCI Group 34 Car and Truck Battery - SLI34AGMDP at Batteries Plus Bulbs
Or Odyssey battery (not sure model Odyssey).

And to provide enough voltage to charge the AGM i will need a Voltage Booster like this: HKB Electronics
Or i could go with a battery tender Amazon.com: NOCO GENIUS5, 5-Amp Fully-Automatic Smart Charger, 6V and 12V Battery Charger, Battery Maintainer, Trickle Charger, and Battery Desulfator with Temperature Compensation: Automotive

I really prefer to do things the safest and best way so not to mess with my 4R since it seems its sensitive to changes in electrical modifications (have had issues with a remote start). So i may just upgrade the battery and forgo the Voltage Booster, but it sounds like a battery tender may not be enough if i don't drive much daily.

I would just go with a regular high CCA lead acid battery so not to mess with things but i would really like to be able to have some backup power for those 2 things.

So far that's all the info i have gathered.

The voltage booster you've mentioned is pretty good and perfectly fine to use. I use a different one with two boost settings but they all get the job done. It is as simple as literally pulling out a fuse and adding it instead and you can reverse the process whenever you wish to do so. That said, I had an Odyssey Group 34 battery that I ran without one of these for well over a year and I would simply plug it into the wall (overnight) with an AC-DC charger once every couple of weeks (sometimes once a month) and it worked perfectly fine. I know a lot of folks who don't even do that and have been fine with the AGM though I would recommend some sort of AC charging to get the most capacity and life out of your battery. They are relatively cheap and if it means a healthy battery for 5+ years then that is really a no brainer especially if you take trips where you do end up cycling close to that 50% discharge point.

Since i don't have AC in my garage (and that part is on B/O) do you think a battery tender like the NOCO GENIUSS is good enough long term?

If you don't have a 110 outlet in your Garage you should probably buy on of the VB devices. I have a similar situation as I park in an underground garage and don't currently have access to a power source. VB means that I don't have to take the battery into my condo to charge it periodically.

Think i found the Odyssey model, apparently they are at Autozone: https://www.autozone.com/batteries-s...cca/411930_0_0

It also appears the stock size 24F Odyssey has more amp hours than the 34? Why would i go 34?

Get the 34R with the adapter. It fits perfectly no mod needed.

I was ready to but then it appears the 24F has more capacity and is a direct fit with no mod needed according to the Autozone guys.

Either one will work. but the 24-F weighs more.
Can't go wrong with a odyssey Battery.
