Best Battery for Skywatcher goto mount

Hi, Just a quick easy question i am hopping.
I am looking for a decent battery to run my Skywatcher goto mount.
It is the Skywatcher 16" Dobsonian goto mount.

I have 3 fans mounted also.
Did an Amp test today and with all fans going and the motor in the fastest setting using both up and across motions all together, I get a maximum of 1.7 amps when everything starts to move, then drop of to under 1 amp.

So i am going to say a maximum draw of 2 amps will be over the top.

Would this batter be suitable?

It is a 12 Volt 18AH battery.

Any advice is appreciated.
