Most of the good reasons for buying a premium battery have more to do with quality construction and durability such as for ambulance, fire, and racing. Some of those premium qualities should increase service life. However, I do not expect any premium battery to last enough longer to be worth paying premium prices. I usually hook a solar or plug-in maintainer to every battery that is going to sit for more than three or four days. When I started using maintainers, dead battery problems went away, and standard batteries started lasting at least 8 years.
