Before thinking about replacing batteries, you should get a better battery charging system. Your present single stage charger will kill any battery you choose to replace the Interstates.

Leaving a liquid cell battery unconnected by itself in a dark room will result in a dead battery in about 30 days from the high rate on internal resistance and self-discharge of these types of batteries.

There are far better alternatives available.
