Plenty of advice around on this site, Basically two choices, go for one the same as the main battery, or put in a deep cycle.

Arguments for and against you will find if you do a search.

Gel or AGM
run our evakool 60 off 120amphr AGM's (fullriver)- more tolerant in general use especially with charging etc.

hobo, I'm the most biased person to reply L0L, get an "AGM" in Deep Cycle build, not cyclic (I distribute both types)
Why not contact EvaKool or your local competant Auto Elect and ask them?

You will get so many 'personal' opinions here you may be confused, not all of them can be correct, or even wrong, you can even use a Cranking battery to run a fridge.

But if you want real value for money and superior battery performance you can't get better than a Deep Cycle AGM battery.

Norm,
yes it was moved from the "Private sale" area some time ago however I can't find it now either, things like that happen when you start cutting 30% off the price of Quality AGM's so I will make enquiries and see what has happened.
David E-mailed me and advised me the add was being moved and gave me the new address, it still looked really good and got the same message accross of the huge savings that could be obtained by allowing me to source for you the best price available on quality solar panels, solar regulators and AGM batteries!!!

Hi Hobo

Best to go for a good quality AGM, they charge faster than normal lead acid batteries and have more than twice the service life. I would wire the glind to the main battery. I have seen Evakools go into 'fault' mode if the glind's pump pulls power from the auxillary battery when it is down on power.

Regards Derek.
