    Default Solar battery recommendations?

    One of my 100Ah batts has packed in and I can't find the exact brand and model so am looking to get some new batts as I'm trying to avoid a mismatched system.

    So 2 x 200Ah or 4 x 100Ah ideally.

    Any recommendations for some best "bang-for-buck" batts?

    What brand/model were you using and how long did they last? Also, what was used to charge/maintain them? Helpful info required to formulate an opinion...j

    Deep cycle AGM's or so-called dry-celled batteries cost more, but are more durable - up to 8 or 10 years life expectancy.
    Ditto for gel deepcycle/solar batteries.

    I would rather not mention any brands, there are as many of them as there are opinions about which is best.
