    I recently bought 2 x 200AH deep cycles. You get normal deep cycles and then you get carbon versions that are more expensive, but offer more discharges and deeper discharges than the non-carbon versions. I baulked at the proce, but eventually bought the carbon versions.

    So that is more than decent. If you PM me your email I can send you the datasheet. What capacity are you looking for?

    I recently bought 2 x 75ah Varta deep cycle battery from Tyremart in Durbanville. Price was better than two other places I asked.

    Whilst we are on this subject which is better Gel or Lead? Think I was told for solar the Gel. But what if you are using Solar and your NL Grey box to charge batteries?

    The GEL is also a lead acid battery. Only use GEL instead of normal acid plus water.

    At least one guy that feels like I do. Not worth the risk and effort to get a refund.
