Wanting to replace my battery array
My PV system has been in place for almost two years, and I'm still on my "learner" set of batteries. I'm using sealed Marine Deep Cycle batteries that are rated at 105ah each. I've taken good care of them, and so far have noticed no decrease in their capacity, but it's time to start thinking about a more appropriate battery type for my system. Still, money is an issue, and for that reason I'm considering 220ah, 6v, golf cart batteries. Because they're not sealed, I'll be able to apply equalization, something I don't do with my current battery array. My system will stay at 12-volts, since I don't want to have to replace my charge controller and inverter. I understand how to wire the 6-volt batteries, and I'm thinking of buying 6 of them which will give me 660ah of capacity at 12-volts. I can buy the 6 batteries for less than $400.00, which seems like a bargain to me. Any comments/advice will be appreciated.
