Best Battery

Hello all,
I drained my battery by leaving the 12v phone charger plugged in and now after charging the battery I still have trouble turning over the engine when the truck hasn't been used for 2 or more days with temperatures below 0c .
I'm looking for a replacement battery and would like to here some suggestions.
Any thoughts?

I replaced mine with Motorcraft Gold 850's. Do you have dual batts...if so, replace in pairs.
