    Default Solar Deep Cycle Gel Battery 100Ah 12v

    I need to replace two batteries in my home inverter system that got cooked. In my search I found these gel batteries (file attached) that seems to be a reasonable offer. Can they also be used in my vehicle as a second battery connected to a Ctec DC-DC charger? Please comment with pos or neg points

    I dont see the battery on TakeAlot anymore...
    But it does looklike a nice battery vs the price

    I have 2x gel batteries in my Bushlapa for the last 4 months already and they are working well

    Which would be best, 1 x 200Ah or 2 x 100Ah?

    Would be for camping purposes.

    Or you can go with this option https://lithiumbatteriessa.co.za/col...-120ah-lifepo4 Local SA guy that building his own Lifepo4 battery setups with warranty and will outlast normal GEL and Lead batteries. You can go check his site and FB page and check the reviews. Really nice guy to deal with. I bought 16 cells from him to build a 52v setup for my Solar setup at home.

    His pricing is very Competitive! 6KW battery for R20k, half the price per KW of the pylon tech. It's rated at 3000 cycles at 80% DOD. so it pays you to buy 1 every 10 yrs or so as opposed to the pylontech...

    jip, and if you add more in to a parallel setup to add up that kw's, then you can even get more cycles out of it because you got more storage capacity then.
