90Ah SLA Battery:

eBay Seller: commando828:-
This seller is excellent. The first battery was damaged in transit and it was replaced in under 1 week. Item sent by 24 hour courier. I highly recommend this seller if you require one of these batteries.

Finally, my new 90Ah SLA battery. Well, the second one. The first one got damaged in the post and started leaking the gel/acid. It wasnt too bad but it did get on the carpet and my hands. Smells like very strong vinegar.

This battery should be able to provide 1000w for 1 hour, or 500w for 2 hours etc etc. This includes inverter losses etc. I have provided a datasheet below.
