Celestron Power Tank 17 Issue

If its toast, which I charged maybe 15 times over the last 4 years, what else can I get that will provide clean power to a CGEM mount for hours and hours! I might even want to power my Nexguide as well. If I can get 15 hours on a charge to power both I would be happy, but I have no issues using the battery pack that comes with the Nexguider either.
I just dont want this to happen to mine: http://youtu.be/c3AeNEgnRhQ sounds like a bad power pulse or underpowered.
Anything I can get from Canadian Tire would be awesome!

A 75 to 115AH deep cycle marine battery is the only way to go. $60-$80 and will go for days on a charge.

It worked I got lucky though I also left mine in charge mode
Another option is too replace the battery. Batteries Plus has them for around 50.00 You just have to take all the screws out and carefully pry apart the 2 plastic case halves

--You charge for 12 hours after each use.
--You charge for 12 hours each month if the battery has not been used.
The elcheapo 17ah job I got from Walmart in 2002 is still goin' strong.
