    How many on stock?

    Would need about 10 for a solar system at the house.

    The market is flooded from time to time with ex cell and high station repeater batteries and UPS batteries. They almost always are marketed complete with original boxes and packaging.

    Not saying this is definitely the case here, hence be wary. I didn't say don't do it. Check it out properly. If a small supplier has more than 5 of a normally expensive special purpose in stock RUN.

    I'm currently not home, but my son picked up 2 for me yesterday, they measured 12.6v when he picked them up. As per the photo, it looks new.
    The seller is on a PE 4x4 Whats App chat group. Even though I do not know him in person, he is known in the group.

    How do one know this is an AGM battery? It doesn't say so anywhere. Have checked the website as well and it isn't in the specs either.

    Thanks Paul. Yes I saw that but all deep cycles are not AGM. So how do one know you are buying an AGM in this case?

    I bought one of those ex cell tower deep cycles two years ago for R 600. It sits under the bonnet where it gets fried, is charged by a DC - DC charger and supplies a freezer with power. It last got charged three days ago when the car was used, and at the moment it measures 12.7 volt. Not bad value for money. I will try and get another one when this one calls it a day.

    Thus presume it is what it says a Deep Cycle and Not AGM....

    I know AGM's are reputed to have many advantages over Deep Cycles:


    • AGM batteries are totally sealed and are easy and safe to transport
    • They never need topping up with water
    • They can be safely mounted inside a boat, car, caravan, motorhome etc
    • AGM batteries only need to be vented to atmosphere, they do not need to be in a sealed box vented to the outside like wet batteries, and can be mounted on their sides or ends if needed.
    • Due to their very low internal resistance AGM batteries will fully charge at a lower voltage, and accept a much larger charge current, so when charging from a standard car/truck alternator these batteries will all but fully charge, and they will charge quickly, in about 3 hours!
    • AGM batteries can be discharged deeper than conventional deep cycle batteries without major damage.
    • AGM batteries only self discharge at the rate of up to 3% per month, and even after 12 months sitting idle can be recharged and put back into full service without any major damage. (A standard deep cycle battery if treated the same way will have destroyed itself, it will no longer hold a good charge)
    • AGM batteries were originally developed for the military, they are very robust.
