Default Deep Cycle Bat. For Charging Batteries

Anybody try using a deep cycle battery and a AC/DC charger to
charge your racing packs. Seems to me that a deep cycle can only
put out 12 volts while a power supply puts out 13.8 volts. Can
you get a full charge from a deep cycle or would you have to buy
an inverter and make up the difference that way ?
Anybody have any ' sperience' ?

Yeah, I used one for about a year, i kept running down my car battery and needed a jump start. i got a deep cycle trolling marine battey from wall mart (forget what the specs were) but it was about $40.00 i ran two chargers on 3000's & 3300's at 4.5 amps, anywhere from 6-10 charges on a race day it always worked fine! i assume you already have a automotive battery charger, i would charge mine the night before a race 4-6 hours depends on what size battery, give it a try if you dont like it wal-mart will take it back they took mine back after almost a year! they'll take anything back, give it a shot.
