    Hi Guys
    I installed 6 Varta LFD90's in my new van last November.
    Since then the van has been used for about 10 weeks.
    The batteries have performed excellently, they charge quickly and deliver all the power I have needed, running our Victron 2kw inverter.

    I have now decided to replace them with lithium to reduce weight and increase space in the garage.

    I'm looking for £50 each, or will consider an offer for the 6

    Collection from Uckfield East Sussex - TN22 postcode area

    PM me if interested

    Thanks

    That’s a good price Robert for a good battery, a little write up on your lithium’s when fitted would be appreciated...(y)

    Got your PM @tboy
    If your batteries are flooded lead acid (regular wet batteries) then your charger should be ok
    If they are gel or AGM then you need to check if your charger has a Lead Acid setting as the charging voltages are different.

    LFD90 likes 14.4v absorption and 13.4v float

    Happy to box one up if you arranged a carrier to collect.

    I looked up parcel force and they won't touch wet batteries. Parcel force is one of the companies parcel monkey use to obtain quotes...

    Anyway the person that may want one hasn't got back to me yet, I'll let you know if they want one (y)
