    Default Deep Cycle battery for trailer (Echo)

    I need to replace the OE installed battery in my Echo, any recommendations and pointers I need to take into consideration perhaps?

    (It came with a Deltec Voyage Deep Cycle 12v 70Ah)

    Thanks

    Measure for space and then decide which battery to fit.

    Any reputable battery place can assist you. Take the old battery with and they will replace with the same dimensions. Replaced mine recently and seem to recall that the price was around R2800.

    Thanks guys - I actually meant AGM / Gel / Dry Cell / Wet Cell, perhaps higher Ah, cycles, etc. or should I just stick to what I had for light duty application?

    Hi Pieter, I recently installed a 100AH Rolls AGM , main advantage is more cycles at deeper discharge and faster recharge rate. They sell for +/- R3000 each.

    Pieter I see you are from Centurion. When I replaced my battery for my Echo a couple of years ago, I got the best deal from Echo themselves.

    Did the same exercise a year ago.

    Had to look around quite a bit to find a 70 ah deep cycle. Wanted to fit a 105 but they are to high to fit under the lid. Dealers from Durbanville wanted to sell me a "Deep Cycle" of 70 ah wich turned out to be just a regular 652 High Cycle. Dont know where to look in Gauteng, so good luck.

    Correct, the batteries supplied by Echo with their vans are normal high cycle batteries (Duratec)

    Ek het tyd terug hierdie ingesit. Echo 4. Nou al verkoop. Het baie lank gesukkel om iets te kry wat pas. Soos jy kan sien het ek die “brackets “ effe verander en 4 x 60 Ah ingepas. Het geloop soos stroop.
