Has anyone had any experience, or would like to offer comment on these batteries: [b]Deka Seamate 8A31DTM[/b]?

Battery World have recommended these as a good choice to replace my mate's three dying caravan batteries. The story is that, being manufactured in the US, they are better quality than some of those coming out of China. I've seen them under $400 each.

They seem to be more of a hybrid battery rather than a straight deep cycle.

Thanks for any comments.

Regards,

Col and Diane

We've just last week purchased four of the Fullriver 120A/H from the guys at Eniquest. You will not get better service anywhere. Haven't had them long enough to give a report on them yet,but was talking to an electrician who works for Virgin Airlines in Cairns and is into solar power on properties up around the Daintree where there's no town supply. Also he's into large boats with solar supply,and his opinion was for solar the best and most used up there was the Fullriver. Only one persons thoughts though. Slightly larger than the Ritar,but fortunately just fitted into our battery box.

Hi
Have had our Concorde Sun Seeker batteries 120a/h four years still performing as good as the day they were fitted, these are made in te USA and are around $340.00 each. They produce up to 38 amps from 4 125w panels on a good day.
