  1. Re: Dual battery recommendations. What to get? High vs Deep

    Thanks!
  2. Re: Dual battery recommendations. What to get? High vs Deep

    I think I'd prefer a battery that charges quicker so high cycle should be good for me.

    And I like cheap as well.

    The Royal 1150k sounds pretty good and for the price I might even get a 2nd and...
  3. Re: Dual battery recommendations. What to get? High vs Deep

    Does it have enough charge to run a fridge overnight?
  4. Re: Dual battery recommendations. What to get? High vs Deep

    How long does it take to charge fully off the alternator while driving?
    Let's say if it's been discharged to about 50%.
  5. Re: Dual battery recommendations. What to get? High vs Deep

    Yea that's correct.
    Cranking and then the aux battery.

    The Royal is looking very tempting.
    Seen it for around R1200 off the FB market place
  6. Re: Dual battery recommendations. What to get? High vs Deep

    I'm not keen to change the charging setup in the vehicle so I think adding a 100w solar setup in the future will be the way to go.

    Nice setup.

    How are you liking the Royal 1150k?
    Seen them for quite cheap online and was considering getting one.

    Is it deep or high cycle?
    Any idea how long it takes to reach full charge off...
  8. Re: Dual battery recommendations. What to get? High vs Deep

    The battery is under the hood of my vehicle.
    Not sure on the charging setup. Was done by the previous owner. Charges when the vehicle is running. Think it's a solenoid. Nothing fancy.

  9. Dual battery recommendations. What to get? High vs Deep

    Hi All

    My deep cycle battery has seen better days and is in need of a replacement.

    Looking for recommendations on what to get.

    Should I go for a high cycle or deep cycle?
    Don't know much...

    I'm due for an alignment and rotation.

    Problem is that my two tyres on the rear of my vehicle give me slight tyre pull when they're on the front.

    The 120 is really nice and comfy.
    Only problem is that the 90 just looks so much better.

    My brother has a diesel 120 for sale up in jhb in good condition.

    Don't think so but I do stand to be corrected.

    Just did a search on the FB group and there are people running 265/75r16 on stock rims with no lift and not getting any rubbing.

    I'd even check the lower ball joints before you take it for a drive.
