Mostly used by motorhomes and caravan users. The best one  for the person who goes away . So for long weekends is the specified leisure batteries. Specially, developed for this market. Thus, they are a crossover between a starter battery and a storage battery . Coming in the Amp sizes of which the most popular ones are. hence, the 100 amp and the 110 amp batteries.

The other type of leisure batteries is the one for use on more adventurous outings and longer journeys. These  in my opinion are the AGM batteries, such as the Optima range of batteries, or indeed most good makes of battery.

The AGM battery is a deep cycle battery and will take much more dis-charge than the other type of leisure batteries. You can totally drain the battery and it will recover on charging.
