Has anyone had any experience using Trojan 6 volt 225 ah batteries as aux. batts. Apparently they use them in golf carts and am thinking about using them in my Hilux as aux batts.

Thanks in advance

They are quiet large and heavy, but for some weird electrical reason, 2 x 6 volts batteries in series are better than 2 x 12 volt batteries of half the Ah rating in parallel.

I got the battery box on my camper trailer built so that it can fit 2 T105's for when we do some long trips down the track, but haven't bought them yet. Trojan do have a good reputation.

Oh yeah..umm.I forgot....the guy said that that was trade price.

If its of any help I have learnt to get the best life span out of a deep cycle battery is to charge them at 10% of their capacity, no matter wether there dead flat or half charged...A standard altenator will put in a heap of amps in,initially and taper off as the battery comes up to capacity.

I've got a circiut diagram for a regulator to do just that ( means having a dedicated altenator for the job, you remove/bypass the internal reg.) let me have your email address if you would like the info.
