It's not the best. That battery is not deep cycle - as far as I can read on the listing...It is designed for high amp output for short periods (seconds, minutes at most), not low drain for extended periods.

I Would call them and ask what battery they carry would be best.

Also, don't forget a charge controller or you'll be sad when that battery explodes.
