Battery advice and recommendation
I need to purchase replacement batteries for my 960W 24v Solar Back Up power system.
I was running 16 x Trojan T105 batteries for the past 8 years but the batteries now need replacing.
The batteries never got used or cycled as the whole system is only intend for back up power in the event of an natural disaster / earthquake or grid shut down etc.
I maintained the old batteries for the past 8 years, trickle charged them, equalized them when needed and filled them with distilled water when needed.
They still look like new .. but the batteries aren’t taking or maintaining a charge anymore. So it’s time to replace them.
I’ve been considering either new T105’s or possibly the Trojan L16 or the Rolls S-550 as well.
What batteries would you recommend I purchase as replacements ? Would AGM batteries be a better choice for this type of solar back up system ?
I don’t mind spending little more if the batteries last longer.
Many thanks in advance.
