Alex, I have done quite a lot of research on this, and for a second battery set-up I have gone with a lead-crystal - as Tinus suggests. Tests I have done have showed that this is a superior battery and far better than other deepcycle batts. Only problem is price - probably 50% more than other deepcycles. But ultimately the extra cycles and life you should get will be double any other battery in my view - see this on youtube :

There are a couple of videos - guy who made these did exhastive test on lead acid and lead crystal, and the results are impressive.

I bought one of these silver batteries at Midas in 2004 -- and had to replace it last month .. and as most you know - I am off into Bundu on Outreaches about 6 times per year [some more, some less] And it powered the 55 litre WAECO and evenings the Jesus film [DVD player / Data Projector + Sound system] and the odd light And all that through the inverter.

Now have a "generic" VARTA [other name, same factory ] @R1200 :woo: .. OH .. it is 115 A H

Stefan -- dis die jaangster rykman Grant wat dink iemand het oompie bedonnerd met die battery -- want ek het slegs 1200 vir hom betaal en hy skop 115 A H uit en hy het 2 jaar waarborg [MAAR die winkel beweer is dieselle fabriek as wat VARTA maak wat die een produseer.
Gou gaan kyk -- die naam is ROYAL en hy is deep cycle en hy is lead crystal

Boonop - die BENTEL laaiertjie wat ek via "Adventures 4 Christ" ((http://www.adventures4christ.com/)) gekoop het laai daai battery te mooi . Die BX2 is juis nou op spesial by hulle -- [af na R850 .. wat baie goedkoper as C Tek is [hoewel hy nie DC > DC kan laai nie]

I've decided on the Varta G7 (650) 95AH as my new crank battery - got prices in Centurion ranging from R1770 to R2350.
Best price is the Battery place on Botha Laan in Lyttelton.
