    Looking to connect an extra battery....in-line so I have longer time before I have to get battery charged while wild camping. See attached pics this is the one in the van at the moment but dont recognise the brand....any ideas? I the 85 AH version. Is it correct I have to have the same brand and power to connect them in-line?

    It is recommended that both batteries are the same type, age and capacity

    I'm no Battery expert but I can do a good Google Search, An image search of that battery returned no results. I would question the quality of the battery. Adding a different battery to this one will probably give a poor performance. As Deaky says both batteries should be the same type and capacity to get the best performance. or just go for 1 higher capacity battery.

    Thanks Bobbych for your help I couldn't find it either. Will probably go down the route of a larger battery.

    I have seen many a wild camper lugging a 70ah leisure battery up the mountain to keep the fridge & heater going all night.
