    My hymer 80 amp gels are nearly 10 years old and still going strong. Most of my camping is non hook up, so they get heavily used.

    These were supplied by Vanbitz with a 7 yr warranty but Elecsol went bust. The batteries are absolutely fine and even after standing 11 days have only dropped 0.01 volt 1/10th of a volt. They have never been abused

    These have been stored outdoors in my shed since November and the voltage is now at 12.87 after 8 months. So the self discharge is next to nothing.

    How's £80 sound, they'll be replacing mine that have just given up after 4 years, but only need them now as getting new Frankia in 6 months. 14762579157531361056201.jpg

    Hello Andy, Seems that i was being a bit hasty in condemning my Elecsol batteries after all,as we were away touring off grid a few nights here and there on Brit Stops didn't really get chance to check the system properly now that we're back i have had chance to look at it and found that something is draining the batteries so i'm just in the process of fuse pulling the system to try and trace the faulty item, sorry for wasting your time about the batteries :(.

    Hi Andy, Looks like my batteries are shot after all so if there any chance that we could meet up some where half way between Worcester and Leeds sometime I'll give you the £50 each (y)
