    As I have just increased my solar power by an extra 200w I decided I had better update my battery bank. I have just ordered 3 x DC24 Hankooks/Alphaline what ever you want to call them from good old battery mega store as 2 of them will replace my old batteries and I decided to add a third one under the passenger seat. So I had better get the prep work done as we will be leaving early wednesday for good old sunny Wales.
    Anyway the most importent thing has already been done (Beer in Van).

    A good buy, I have 3 x Hankooks (110amps) and 200 watts of solar. Not been "on grid" since March this year. Enjoy Pembrey.

    Hi John, I have been looking at them and they are at least proper deep cycle not dual purpose and my current batts are Alphaline and are a few years old now but the previous owner had solar panel added plus an additional battery but did not replace the original hab battery under the drivers seat so they are now only as good as the original. So hence the change. Doing it this way was my easiest option and also adding a few more AHs.
