Hi after reading lots on here i had the 150w panel and victron smart solar mppt 75/15 installed
After a weekend away and thinking the battery was fully charged, it appears to be draining really quick, it seems to be constantly in bulk and charges to a decent level but drops to a really low level...
I’m seeing both of these batteries for £159.99. Obviously the 130Ah sounds better in terms of battery capacity, but the 110A Leoch Xtreme battery seems to be what loads of you on the forum have.

So went out to the van today after a week of not driving it to find the leisure battery was practically dead. (120 agm) Sitting at 11.5v. Managed to get it onto the battery charger and is now charging. My question is what could have possibly drained it, and have I done any lasting damage to it...

Hi I’ve just bought a new T32 camper fitted with a 90amp (I think) leisure battery. On 12v fridge only lasts for about 2 hours and doesn’t cool that well plugged in at 240v. Does anyone have experience on this as I’ve been told it’s perfectly normal and 2 hours is all we should get on leisure...
Hi all, hoping to purchase a new agm leisure battery to fit under drivers seat. Anyone any recommendations as to a good quality battery for off grid so around 200ah that would fit. Most I've seen seem to be just too big to fit underneath, would welcome any help, thanks
So I need to replace my leisure battery. I want to maintain the height of 240mm to top of posts but can go bigger on battery length and width. I dont know whether to go agm or gel. I currently have 110ah sealed lead acid. I was going to go bigger to like 200ah as we never really use hookup. We...
