What kind of car battery will survive the most jump starts?

(1990 Chevrolet 1500 Pickup)
in Sacramento, CA on January 08, 2015
I keep leaving my car lights on after I turn the engine off. Then I need a jump start to start the car again. What are the characteristics of the battery that will best handle this kind of abuse?

Deep Cycle Marine applications have great reserve capacity if you can't simply turn off the switch!!!

None. All batteries work the same. If you keep cycling them from charged to dead to charged they all will have a short life, car batteries are not designed for that. Turn your lights off.
