BATTERY BANK SUGGESTIONS...
Lead Acid batteries will require the most maintenance over time but are by-far the least expensive and still very reliable if properly cared for. Pacific Sun Systems suggests the Trojan L16G-AC which is a popular and cost effective Deep Cycling battery especially good for off-grid, where the battery will maintain it’s health through the daily charge and discharge cycle. If you want the most inexpensive way to get your system started and are ready for the proper maintenance, another good option is the US Battery US185HC-XC2 (12V/220AH).
Sealed AGM Batteries are sealed with electrolyte held captive by glass mat and will not require as much attention or maintenance over time as a lead acid battery, and are still fairly cost effective. The Sun Xtender PVX-4050HT is our suggestion for the best VRLA-AGM Deep Cycle Battery for Off Grid and Grid Tied Systems. The Sun Xtender PVX-4050HT comes with the industries best warranty, at 5 years! Other good options include Fullriver DC250-6 (6V/250AH) and Crown Battery (6V/390AH), which will have a slightly lower price tag, however slightly shorter warranty period.
Gel batteries are sealed with gel electrolyte and are very low maintenance and in the right application, could offer more life cycles and higher efficiency than Lead Acid or Sealed AGM Batteries. Gel batteries are suggested for applications that will not have huge swings in the charge and discharge current due to their low charging voltage and susceptibility to overcharging (especially in wind (or hybrid wind/solar) applications). If your system will have a similar and consistent charge current over time, and you decide GEL Batteries are best for your application Pacific Sun Systems suggests Universal Battery UB4D (180AH) or UB8D (250AH)
LIFEP04 or Li(NiCoMn)O2 are the two main choices for Lithium batteries. While LIFEP04 is thought to be the most popular with highest life-cycles, Li(NiCoMn)O2 is lighter, produces less heat and is slightly cheaper than LIFEP04. For renewable energy use, most lithium batteries are custom made to suit each application and system as off-the-shelf Battery Management Systems could fail due to some of the variables in a renewable energy system such as drastic swings in charge and discharge rate. If you decide upon the superior life cycle and zero maintenance of a lithium battery, Pacific Sun Systems offers 12V/100AH Li(NiCoMn)O2 Batteries starting at $699.
