6V Renewable Energy Deep Cycle Battery
A very affordable product, makes for a less expensive system

Just a note that if you use these batteries for solar (great choice) you will need at least 100 watts per battery(min) of panel 5 amps. 2 batteries together for 12 volts will need minimum 200 watts of solar panel or you will never get them to charge fully. Ideally 400 watts for 2 batteries. The review a person wrote here probably had undersized solar panels to get the batteries to charge to 14.4 to 14.7 volts.

perfect for solar - just don't foget to add water
I got these batteries for my off the gid cottage. They work really well, I have 4 batteries. I noticed you need to add water every 3-4 months in order to keep a good charge.

Terrible batteries. Never could get them to hold a charge. Went to take them back and found out they only have 6 month warranty. Avoid these batteries.

must have got two lemons
I have had these batteries for 3 years and they have never held a charge. If I trickle charge them they get to 13.8 and then boil. The solar panels, which I bought them for have never been able to charge them past 13.4v. I suspect these were damaged and returned by a previous person since the store had two in stock and no other stores were carrying them. With a 6 month warranty long past, these are very expensive boat anchors.

Just purchased two of this batteries and highly recommend them. To clarify the wrong infomation in the Q&A. The battery size is 10 5/16 (L) x 7 1/8 (W) and 9 1/2 (H) and the weight is 62 lbs.

These batteries are some serious power demons. They really hold a lot of juice in a solar panel setup. I got two of these (12v system) and they will run my basic lights and computer for 2 or 3 days straight in my camper van. Very good amp-hour rating for the price. Definitely recommended for your amateur solar power system.
