    I am needing to add to my battery bank and am looking for a battery to fit the locker. Trouble is I can't find anything on the net to fit.The dimensions are max length 317,height 185 poss at a push 190 and width 150. It is the width causing the problem. The battery I have is a 90ah Energizer and I have room for another one but I can't find these on the internet.It just comes up with those batteries for torches and the like! Any advice or solutions welcome.
    Cheers:thumb:

    Sorry to Hi-Jack your thread, but I'm also looking for a second hab battery without the physical constraints that you have.

    This is because I have been p-m'ing Pappjohn for the last couple of days picking his brain on the best way to do this or what should I use for that and his help as always has been invaluable.....

    ....................Thank-you Pappajohn, really appreciated.........Griff

    Thanks Pappajohn...you are a mine of info.Strange that it's a car battery but they must do or have done leisure batteries as this one works well as such! Cheers...John:thumb:

    cant find any reference to leisure batteries on any of their websites...just car and commercial. :Sad:

    many cheaper leisure batteries are just relabelled car batteries anyway.

    make sure you get a deep cycle battery and not a cranking battery as they give different power out puts. one gives max power for cranking starter motor and the other gives steady power to run lights tv ect and recovers better when run down.
