    Bought a couple of 130 aH batteries late last year .. They were second hand but from a very trustworthy source.. Sadly they turned out to be none too well ( I aint moaning or anything it was just one of those things,,, Never really sussed it out until we had a couple of days away and off hook up )

    Sooooo

    I need a couple of 110aH good quality batteries ready and waiting for me when I get home in March.. Anyone got any suggestions who I can try ? ( Not really interested in fleabay as almost everything on there is either cheap and nasty pretending to be better than they are, or collection only )

    They are handy for us, but we tend to not bother with them now. For some reason, they charge more in their shop than on their website - even though orders are picked from their shop.
    When I queried why, I was told it was "cheaper for them to trade online". So, I went home and bought the item (TV) online - on Amazon :Rofl1:

    Sadly- I see they've also hiked their camp site prices (again) this year :Angry:

    probably my poor use of words, but they were claimed by the tests to be of no different in construction to Normal Engine starter batteries. whereas the other 3 were, according to the CC article ... so it must be true!:Doh:

    Yes but they cleverly don't compare with named products just batteries sawn in half and lots of inference about what they're supposed to be.
    If they were above board they'd pick a dozen big sellers to compare and not hide the names

    i agree, they said when questioned their tests were more likely to influence the manufacturers of the " lesser" batteries by not naming them :Doh:

    more likely they'd loose the advertising revenue:RollEyes:

    You've been a member long enough on here to know better ! You must have the latest traction batteries with built in wifi and a lunar charging capacitor!
    Or you could just do what the rest of us do and take your chances with re- badged starter batteries.
    I bought a couple of Numax 110 just over two years ago off eBay at a very cheap price.Im just so pissed off , they've never let me down and still hold charge as if new.Had I spent a fortune on the latest in make or type my life would have been so much more complete,honest.:RollEyes:

    slightly off post but i have Exide Gel battery as a std fit in my van as it is inboard and not vented. and only space for 1:Sad: so i believe i am limited to what i can fit due to the possibility of gassing off.

    I had a pair of Numax 110ah on my last MoHo and for the money they were excellent. I think they were about £65 each, delivered. They were from eBay.
    I think as long as half decent batteries are kept charged they will last well - I don't think any battery, however big name branded, likes being freezing and low on charge.

    Regards,

    Trikeman. :Wink:

    All mine are inboard sealed but I'd not buy Gel unless it was to be installed laid on it's side. I believe this is the case in some vehicles.
