I'd go for deep cycle lead acid gell cells myself. They seem to have the highest energy density. If too expensive then any deep cycle (or "traction") battery. Don't bother with the convnetional car "starter" batteries, they are designed to give a burst of high amperage to the starter motor but will fade quickly in constant demand uses.
As to the brand??? yes well any.....
